Danielle Brown

BA Advertising & Design 2008

Sunderland born and bred, Danielle Brown graduated with a First Class Degree in Advertising & Design in 2008. She was not only able to study at her home city but also had the support of her family close by too.  After graduating, and with an extensive portfolio of work, she moved to London where she has worked in the digital industry for 6 years.

Danielle joined Isobar in 2012, a ‘full-service’ agency dedicated to helping connect brands with their customers by creating from apps to fully integrated communication campaigns. As part of her role, Danielle concepts and produces marketing ideas for clients in a range of digital mediums. Some of her clients include Google, Toyota, Kellogg’s, Auto Trader and SONY.

Danielle has no hesitation in saying how the University of Sunderland has helped her in achieving her ambitions: “This course was the first of its kind at Sunderland; I was allowed a lot of freedom to fulfil my career ambitions. I had full support from my tutors; they and I always had the end goal of me getting my ideal job in advising front of mind and were quite flexible in helping me do so.”

“My tutors and the people in London inspired me. Without Keith Nevens and Tony Gillian I would have never found out as much about the industry. They were both very passionate to make sure I succeeded and allowed me to travel to London to visit the people who I needed to see to enable me to get into the industry.”

Danielle has also some words of advice for current students on how to get a foot on the career ladder and secure their dream job: “You must have passion for what you want to do. If you don’t enjoy what you’re doing then you’ll never achieve great things. The most important thing is to find something that you love to do, it’s what will get you out of bed in the mornings. Once you’ve found it, work hard and be nice.”
