What is Creative Media?

Blog by Haarlem Campus

creative media

We live in times where people are wondering what the next trend will be, what is happening in the world, where should people go and study, how to find happiness, what the newest and hottest movies and music are. We can rely and do rely on finding answers to all of these questions in one place: the media. Media is part of us as much as clothes are, we could live without it but the pluses outweigh the negatives. Media allows us to collect a complete picture of the world that is easily digestible for us, letting us choose the information that each individual cares about.

The art of storytelling

A newspaper article, a video or podcast, a billboard advertisement, a design on a T-shirt, a blog post – all of these have an essential component of media which is storytelling. Stories is the oldest form of media, the earliest humans communicated through stories by using sticks and stones to show where food was. We share wisdom and ideas through stories, even the simplest message like “I believe!” has a story to it, it tells something that the creator wants to get across. 

Creative Media is about telling stories in a way that resonates with people. It can be with an article or podcast, it can be with light brushstrokes on an empty canvas or it can be with dialogue – at the end it is all about sharing information to others in a way that is unique to YOU. Not only that, Creative Media is about taking ownership and innovating the media that you produce, a core part of entrepreneurship.

What does a Creative Media expert do?

Simple answer: you tell stories in the way you want to ethically and creatively. You will make apples the best selling product in stores, you will show why a certain book is life changing to customers, you will inspire millions to take action for a better world by letting them be part of an innovative initiative – you help to create a better world through media.

Some examples of what creative media experts do:

  • Create podcasts;
  • Publish articles that get big viewerships;
  • Create marketing campaigns that defy standards;
  • Organise successful events that inspire thousands.
"The approach to media as we know it, is rapidly changing. The current paradigm shift in media calls Tomorrow's Creative Media Expert to perform a delicate balancing act between today's wicked challenges and opportunities."
Pier Wouda,
Program director Creative Media

What can I do with a Creative Media degree?
