BMI Media

Oct 2015
  • "In 2015 BMI will organise 52 student recruitment fairs and agent workshops in 15 different countries, while our Latin American platform Viva-Mundo.com, connects institutions with over 400,000 Latin American students a month. BMI are the experts in international student recruitment. Our clear purpose is to help institutions from around the world increase their international students from Brazil, Asia, Latin America and The Middle East. Via its market-leading international student recruitment fairs, agent workshops, university networking events and online digital marketing services. Well known as the organiser of the largest and most important recruitment fairs in Latin America, BMI’s clients include universities, language schools, government associations, higher education colleges, boarding schools and educational agencies from over 36 countries." BMI being a world wide known company and by having so many clients from different cultures and backgrounds, allowed me to explore the relationship between the company and the client. It was a crucial period where I managed to improve all my skills and my design practice. My duties involved designing campaigns for different countries (posters, flyers, media reports, logos, etc..). At BMI, I not only had the chance to work with graphic identities for different events, but also to design directly for the social media. By far the most relevant challenge I’ve ever faced as I learnt how to adapt my visual language to the feedback from the clients.

You will be encouraged to develop your awareness and understanding of the social contexts and environmental responsibilities of design, so that you can identify communication strategies that will enrich people's lives by enabling them to be better informed about the world in which they live. You will learn to engage audiences through imaginative and creative design solutions that may challenge, persuade, shock, provoke, excite and entertain, but always aim to inform. You will also develop the transferable and cognitive skills necessary for lifelong personal and professional development.
