One Club “Young Ones” Student Competition Kick-off Meeting

If you plan on entering the upcoming One Club Young Ones Student Competition, make sure you stop by one of the upcoming meetings and get the who, what, when, where, and how about it. There will be a short presentation regarding the creative briefs and submission rules etc., followed by a Q and A session afterwards. It’s a great opportunity to get downloaded on the competition and a great place to meet potential team partners and get the ball rolling.

Tuesday, November 3, 11:00 A.M
Wednesday, November 4, 3:00 P.M.

410 Bush Street
The big-ass workroom across from the elevator on the third floor

Can’t win if you don’t play. No crying if your fellow students develop some kick-ass solutions and win a pencil and get flown to New York for the award ceremony and while they are there get noticed by Creative Directors and get cool jobs at great agencies and go on to live happy and successful lives, eventually igniting a creative revolution that saves the world. While you, on your broken and slightly greasy couch, look at your linty navel while sipping box wine and mumble:

1.”I woulda.”
2.”I shoulda.”
3.”I coulda.”

New Workroom for Ad Students

Get more done while you’re on campus by taking advantage of the new workroom on the third floor at 410 Bush. Use it for meeting with your creative team to develop ideas, as a production space or just a quiet place to chill out and contemplate on how you will fund the building of your underwater city. It’s the room directly across Mark’s, Wojo’s and Cameron’s offices on the third floor. First come, first served. No fistfights please.

October 19 Guest Speaker Cancelled

Wade Alger let us know he cannot get away from commercial productions in LA so he will not be making a class visit or speaking Monday. It’s unfortunate but a good reminder that even at the top levels of the industry, the work comes first.
