Ipswich/Otley: White Space Design helps landscape students

A GROUP of landscape and garden design students have received some top tips from an Ipswich marketing company.

The University Campus Suffolk (UCS) Otley students are studying for a foundation degree which includes a marketing module.

They were tasked with producing a four-page brochure to help promote their future businesses and course lecturer Mia Witham contacted marketing and design agency White Space Design to see if it would offer some advice.

Nicola Bingham, account manager at White Space Design, said she was delighted to support the UCS students during a workshop, having also previously supported UCS event management students voluntarily in the past, and praised the standard of the Otley students’ work.

She said: “I didn’t know what to expect but I was surprised by the standard of work, considering the students did not have any real world experience of marketing.

“It was interesting to see the different personalities come across in the brochures and everyone seemed to enjoy the process and hopefully found it worthwhile.”

Mia Witham said: “We are very thankful to White Space Design for supporting us on this project and for giving up their time and expertise for free.

“Many of our learners set up their own companies when they complete their studies, therefore they will definitely need to think about how they market themselves, and their businesses, in the future.”

She added: “That’s why this session was so helpful. It gave those involved some invaluable advice on what you need to do to stand out and make an impression through branding and marketing. We are incredibly grateful for the support”.
