This week Level 3 Graphic Design student Emily Price took it upon herself to proactively ‘go the extra mile’ after a call out from Advertising and Design studio Havas. Here is her story:
Havas WW Roots set up a grad scheme in which students have just one tweet to send which will grab their attention. For my application I wanted to push the boundaries of how Twitter can be utilized, by creating a campaign which all started from my one tweet to @havaswwroots. My tweet read ‘I don’t just go the extra mile but an extra 131 from Lincoln to London here I come! The photos show my journey from when I then set off at 4am on my 131 mile journey to Havas WW London offices and track my journey through tweets under my campaign account @131mileslater. Along my journey I generated over 100 followers, got stopped by the police, and gained a lot of support along the way. When I finally reached Havas WW roots I was able to meet and chat with some of the graduates chosen from last year over a cuppa, it was great fun and such an adventure! I am now just waiting anxiously to hear the results, which are released on the 30th March! To follow the whole journey please check out and follow me @131mileslater on Twitter!
