Earlier this year Ocean showed its support for nurturing creative talent locally by teaming up with final year design students from Ayr College. Students were given a taste of commercial design by working on a brief to develop a new Ocean logo, mirroring the Ocean designers every step of the way. Five students were then chosen to design an advert for the agency, with a month’s paid summer placement on offer as the prize. The winner was 19 year-old Esther Nicolson from Ayr who enthusiastically described her time with Ocean as ‘brilliant’. Following the success of this project, the agency hopes to continue bridging the gap between education and the creative industry by returning to the campus next year.
