SCREENSHOTS FOR SITE.png
 

We've started an ADTHING here at the University of Utah.

Imagine handpicking the best writers, strategists, and designers 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.

So...

In the end, these talented, remarkable students are years ahead – of their peers – and for the lucky companies already recruiting them.

Companies like Wieden, David&Goliath, McCann, RPA, Venables Bell, and Adobe’s Experience Design Group.

The best way to connect with the next, savvy, social generation?

Hire some.

Who's behind this?

Bill Oakley, former Chief Creative Officer in the McCann Worldgroup.

Creative lead on the world's largest beer at age 26.  The world's largest airline at 32.  And the world's largest company at 38.  More than 100 global awards including Cannes Lions, One Show, D&AD, National Effie's, Communication Arts, and one of Ad Age's "12 Ads That Changed Super Bowl Marketing."

And now he's started this ADTHING.  With help from a global Advisory Board.
