Another fun brief during my marketing assistant role at CodeClan was to create a set of a5 flyers to promote the current course offering at open days or external events. These mostly outlined details such as what the course was about, what would be taught, the price and where to find out more info.
Really happy with the end result on these, and particularly proud of the icons which accompanied text. As I worked in-house with the CodeClan team I was often tasked with organising the print and collection of the flyers – which was very satisfying to actually go and pick up physical copies of my work and be the first to see it! (Something that as most of my work is conducted remotely, I don’t always get to see. So that was exciting!)
CodeClan are a recent Scotland based startup who focus on transforming they way in which technology based skills are learned. Tuition in skills such as web development, UX, Agile are taught in an immersive environment – with the main “professional software development” course being a short course which gets its students job ready in just 16 weeks. They also offer bespoke courses to companies wishing to upgrade their staffs skills in tech.
My connection with CodeClan first started in January 2017 when I started a 6 month placement – which was a requirement of my marketing degree at Edinburgh Napier. When I finished the placement in May 2017, I must have done alright because they asked me to stay on in an upgraded role of marketing assistant over the summer. This also continued on a freelance basis after the summer when I returned to uni – for which I continued to work with CodeClan on marketing projects as best I could around my studies.
