CAM Creative focuses on providing students with a real-world, creative agency experience by connecting them with clients who value giving back through student development.

 

OUR MISSION

CAM Creative is a faculty-led, student-run design studio within the College of Arts & Media at University of Colorado Denver. We work with real clients to create comprehensive, strategy-based creative solutions that achieve business objectives and help the client successfully manage consumer perspectives, brand equity and communication outcomes while also enriching the lives of students. 

INDUSTRY LEADERSHIP

Under the supervision of industry professionals from the deep bench know-how found within the College of Arts & Media creative and design faculty, the select team of student creatives lead client projects with fresh, inspired vision. CAM Creative functions as a cross-disciplinary, professional creative studio/agency with innovative, competitive design services delivered with dedication and precision at a cost-effective price. Although each project has varying objectives and outcomes, the range of work includes and is not limited to brand identity development, collateral development, comprehensive advertising campaigns, film- and motion-based solutions, infographic illustrations, advertising photography, web sites and interactive solutions.

STUDENT LED. STUDENT-FOCUSED.

CAM Creative's team of students is competitively chosen each semester using a selection process that requires a review of portfolio and on-site interviews and features students from all major disciplines. Once hired, students can earn credit with an option for paid stipends. Students have the option to repeat the course several times in subsequent semesters. In this course students work in an environment that mirrors a realistic visual communications studio/agency where skills are developed using industry standard customer service techniques, innovative creative development processes and business strategy models that instill skills in leadership, management, collaboration, account servicing and budget responsibility.
