Fink student school goes online with briefs and advice

LONDON - Graham Fink and Deirdre Allen, the founders of the production company thefinktank, are launching an online version of their free art school for students.

At theartschool online, launched this week, students can work on ad and design briefs. Each month, work will be assessed by creative directors, with James Lowther, a founding partner at M&C Saatchi, and Mark Chalmers, the creative director of StrawberryFrog, involved this month.

The site also includes job-hunting tips and an advice helpline number for students. It can be accessed via thefinktank.com.

Fink said: "This is a unique way for people to experience theartschool and its ethos. Now anyone in a chrome office in Mumbai or a San Francisco bed-sit can share ideas and experiences with like-minded people worldwide."
