Public Relations and Advertising Club (PRAD)
The Public Relations and Advertising Club comes out of the Communications Department at Pittsburg State University. It is a club that actually lets students meet with real clients and provide them with their needs. We provide anything from web design, to social media, to graphic design work. The best part about it is that the clients get to use our service for FREE!
The club also helps us to connect and learn how to market ourselves better. This is a great reason to be a part of this club because of how the job market is going for us students graduating soon. We are able to attend conferences that help us to meet top companies in the Advertising and Public Relations Industry and get advice from the best in the business.
I have been a member of this club for this past year and as a member I have worked on some design to represent PRAD. Here are a couple of the things that I have designed for PRAD.
I created this for a t-shirt design idea for PRAD. I tried to design off our motto. I was pleased with my outcome.
This is a poster that I created for our “Inspiration Cramsession” that we put on for students every couple of weeks. This “cramsession” is for students who need help with their portfolios or resumes that they are working on or need help getting started with. We invited a teacher who is known for winning several Addy Awards from AAF to come and speak with us.
Some good news that I didn’t add last time. As of right now, I am in training to become next year’s PRAD President. I’m really looking forward to the experience and challenges that I will face. I have already been thinking of ways to try and make our club stand out more and bring in more active members. It’s definitely exciting!
Congrats to the other members selected to be officers!
