First magazine advertisment for Vers!!

With an encounter with the AIB student union has ended up with an offer to have a page advertisment placed in the university magazine digsta bumsta.

We have been given one page in the back to advertise.

Today has been spent coming up with a page that is clever, different and shows vers creative for what it is.
