Per group of 2, we had to create an integrated marketing communications campaign for a product. This project was 100% of the mark of this module. I did this project with Nicolas Louard, an Ipagien. Our product was organic clothes for city dogs.
I really like this module. Indeed, with Nicolas, we had the possibility to have fun and let express our imagination while staying in a school and serious frame. We had to study the dog clothing market of Ireland, to create a slogan, a logo, posters, … Every two weeks, we had to do a return a file to the teacher and sometimes we had to make a presentation in front of the class.
