Ad School

So the first dream on my "bucket list" began nearly two years ago, and just resurfaced this morning. On my ride to work I was talking to my good friend Kristen about her educational experience. After graduating from college with a degree in advertising, she attended the Miami Ad School for a 12-week boot camp in Account Planning. This intense, 7 days-a-week program trains students to be the strategic brains behind creative solutions. The account planning piece of this is a relatively new interest of mine (more on this in a later post). But I've been intrigued by ad school ever since I came across the online portfolio of Dave Werner. Absolutely incredible. Never has any website been so inspiring to me. I guess my hope is that by attending an ad school (Dave graduated from Portfolio Center in Atlanta), I can someday be as creative and imaginative as he is. But really, I just like the challenge. I miss that fast-paced, sweat and tears excitement of school and the passionate people I'd be surrounded by. I yearn for that creative stimulation. Plus, the thrill of moving somewhere like San Francisco, even for just a short time, is almost more than enough to persuade me to apply!
