  1. 1. ©Hallo
  2. 2. At Hallo© nobody is labelled. Our students are multifunctional players with different talents andabilities. In principle they can move across the whole field and take over tasks from one another. Ourfinal product is more than the sum of the parts. After all, dialogue and discussion carry people furtherthan they could go individually. Difference in opinion is a bridge to better ideas.Hallo© believes that every single person is in their essence creative and versatile. Linear thinking,traditional schooling systems, rules and regulations restrict their creativity. At Hallo© there is no goodor bad. There are no absolute truths, there is only usefulness. Truths are temporary and local. It is notabout being right, it is about becoming wiser.Concepts (behind brands) combine on an abstract level all the tools and forms of expression of abrand. That is the vision of Hallo© on commercial communication. Those of us today who are active inapplied creativity, arent selling something, but at most are creating the conditions and environmentin which people can decide for themselves if they want to buy. A person is an active autonomousfactor in the marketing process. We want to become part of his life and share experiences.This is our way of thinking at Hallo©. About organisations, people and the communication withpeople. Our vision is future orientated. We signal early on whats happening right at the forefront ofconsumer and business behaviour and the effects on communication.Hallo© missionHallo© wants to show the established order, what the future could look like. We want to remix oldinsights into new tools. With that every individual may make mistakes. Stronger still, it is advised.Because mistakes are an effective tool for creating new insights. If these thoughts inspire you, thanyou will have a chance at Hallo© to develop your talents and quickly work on professional maturity.Hallo© isHallo© is a one-year postgraduate study for applied creativity.Hallo© teaches you to think in a conceptual/generalistic way, across all disciplines.

This while being coached.Hallo©s aim is to prepare young talented people for genuine conceptual/generalistic thinking andprofessional maturity.Hallo© applicationHallo© welcomes students who have graduated from universities and academies. But it is not a must.It is of greater importance that candidates link their knowledge with a large doses of curiosity andpassion. They have to be people who are willing to explore new ways, tangent to traditional patternsof thinking, who can give new impulse to the profession. They think on a highly abstract level. Forseveral different reasons, it is important that they speak English. Hallo© selects candidates as follows.Once candidates have applied, they will receive a case study which is identical for all candidates. Onthe basis of the work received, the selection committee makes an initial selection. Those who areselected will be invited for an interview.
