My advertising professor Ann Lemon knows everyone and has worked everywhere in advertising industry. In class we reference various Ads and every other word out of her mouth is “oh I know them”, “I helped design that Ad”. Lemon is a great inspiration to us all and having her lead you her creative mind has changed me a designer! This past wednesday Lemon took her advertising class to New York City to visit Publicis Modem- and interactive advertising company, McGarry Bowen- advertising agency, and Hillary Black- a headhunter from Kay & Black (she’s the black).

Lesson learned from McGarry Bowen- Adam Tatz postponed his honeymoon to interview for the job at McGarry Bown, needless to say he got the job and on the return from his honeymoon he had a job.

“Be your best advocate.” - Hillary Black
“Go with your gut.” - Hillary Black
Lesson Learned from Hillary Black- Headhunter from Kay & Black. Hillary gave some of the best advice anyone could give a designer. She makes you feel at ease and gives you the tools to be prepared to enter the real world of design.
