Legal ‘supers’ training

Following the recent BCAP guidance changes this course will look at the new regulations and provide recent ad examples to back up learning, with a heavy focus on legibility.

The session is ideal for anyone working in post-production and will provide a comprehensive overview of superimposed text in ads and examples of the common mistakes we come across daily. 

Operations Manager Mark Hynes and Training Manager Michael Haydon will lead delegates through course material, learning activities, and an end-of-session Q&A.
