THE AD AGENCY STAFFED BY STUDENTS. RUN BY PROS.
We've started an ADTHING here at the University of Utah.
Imagine handpicking the best writers, strategists, and visualists at a PAC-12 college campus and throwing them into the deep end of advertising for 1-2 years.
Not classes. Not spec work. Real work. From real clients. Directed by global pros.
So the work is at a pro level.
But with a "where the heck did that come from?" style that defines this generation.
In the end, these talented, remarkable students are years ahead – of their peers – and for the lucky companies recruiting them.
Companies like Wieden, David&Goliath, McCann Worldgroup, RPA, Venables Bell, and Adobe’s Experience Design Group.
The best way to connect with the next, savvy, social generation? Hire some.
is behind this?
