Bring your student campaigns alive
with unique creative digital & print content
Who are we?
We are a team of creative specialists led by digital content creator Sam Hudson.
Sam has been in your shoes, starting his career as a student union marketing executive and spending over a decade working closely with educational organisations just like yours.
We get it – the constant challenge of balancing your communications with informative information whilst appealing to an evolving student audience.
What do we create?
We specialise in all creative content from motion graphics to traditional print media.
We understand that resources can be limited so we're here to jump in and out of campaigns whenever we're required without the need to recruit more staff or work with large marketing firms.
There is no concept too large or small and we love a challenge, so do not hesitate to throw your most innovative ideas our way.
Where do we focus?
We create content for every key moment along the student journey including Welcome Week, Elections, Awards and Graduations.
Every campaign you run across the student year and beyond can benefit from beautiful and engaging content.
Whether that be through an animated explainer video or a solid piece of print design, there is always room to up your game when communicating with students.
Our creative work
seen by thousands of students
Various animated explainer videos promoting the union services including an introduction to the advice centre. These were shown across social channels and emailed out to students before their arrival.
"Buckley Creative worked with us on our welcome video for new students and we were amazed with the results. This was an area we had never explored before, but we had great open communication throughout the project and everything we asked for was delivered to the highest quality."
Communications and Marketing Manager
We have supported London Met SU across a variety of campaigns including student elections and student rep recruitment. These campaigns were enhanced by creating digital and print content including animations, video interviews, poster designs and social graphics.
"Buckley Creative helped us create a range of videos and still posters. These were used as part of various successful promotional drives for example encouraging voting in our annual elections and student to volunteers with various Students' Union activities and campaigns. Sam is great to work with. I highly recommend Buckley Creative."
Student Voice Coordinator
We are currently working on two huge pieces of branding work with Essex SU. This includes a full re-brand of their flagship nightclub Subzero and creation of supporting marketing assets. We’re also creating the brand and assets for their 2023 Welcome Week lineup which is due to be released soon.
‘We’ve really enjoyed working with Buckley Creative so far. Sam’s quick to respond, gets briefs quickly and has presented some innovative ideas so far.”
Head of Marketing, Brand & Communications
A huge impact video piece detailing the story of the OU Students Association. We worked closely with the client on this narrative and produced a pop-up book style animation. This video is displayed on the OU Students Association website homepage and was distributed across socials.
"We want to thank Sam at Buckley Creative for their exceptional work on our 50th Anniversary video. The video perfectly captured the essence of the Students Association and left a lasting impression on our audience. We appreciate Sam’s dedication and expertise in bringing our vision to life in a short amount of time. We very much look forward to working with Buckley Creative again in the future."
We have supported Blackburn University Centre for over 5 years and created countless animations to support all of their student campaigns. This has included videos around registration, financial support, using student services, awards and more.
“Buckley Creative have quickly and efficiently produced a range of materials to support Blackburn College. These have helped us create a virtual open event, create animated infographic explainer videos that have helped make complex topics simple and as well as video content. I have recommended Buckley Creative to others because I know they too cannot failed to be impressed at the work."
Head of Marketing
We created animations to support two major campaigns at Northampton SU including the student elections and promoting the NSS to students across campus.
When potential students are considering joining LSTM they have many questions about the school and its location in the UK. We solved this issue with an animated explainer video detailing all of the amazing things LSTM and Liverpool have to offer the student experience.
"I've had the pleasure of working with Sam on a few education projects for my Further and Higher education clients and he's always delivered an exceptional product. Sam has created animations which bring to life institutional key messages on multi-channel campaigns in a fun, creative but professional way. There's no doubt I'll work with Sam again."
