  • Chris Little, digital CD at M&C Saatchi will teach It’s a Mobile World.

Of his involvement, Little said: “It feels like the development of mobile devices has accelerated to a point where every 6-12 months there’s a new piece of tech on the market that forces the ad world to reconsider their approach.

“In 2015 people can be constantly online, connected to their network 24/7 and with a raft of content at their fingertips. On the flip side savvy brands can learn more about Australians than ever before. So I’m super excited to share my experience with the Miami Ad School students in Sydney and probably get some tips from the new generation of truly mobile creatives.”

Theophane added: “As the media landscape has morphed, so has the role of the ad agency. Today’s leading shops not only promote products, they come up with product ideas and then develop them. The Miami Ad School Product Creation class is a primer on the process and an absolute must for any aspiring creative.”
