The blog about advertising I started in 2010 out of desperation. I was unhappy with school,
unhappy with my work, really just generally unhappy. It’s helped keep me sane since.
Here’s some links to get you started.

THE BOOK CLUB
My university's ad program didn't have any portfolio development (as strange as that may sound).
So, during our senior year, a group of renegade ad students banded together to create The Book Club.
We focused on building portfolios without any class assignments.
The critiques were brutal but constructive.
100% of us came out of school with jobs in advertising.
Some friends and I made this for our school’s short film competition.
We came in first because, of course we did.
It taught me two great lessons: Work with a great team. Know your audience.
