Drop And Give Me 20…Concepts, That Is

I suppose that even if you live and go to school in New York City, the world of advertising can seem like another world if you don’t know anyone in it. To fix that, the One Club is holding its first “Creative Boot Camp” this week, open to students who attend one of the City University of New York (CUNY) schools.
From the press release:

Workshops will be led by some of the industry’s leading creative names from worlds of advertising and design – including: Joe Duffy, Kash Sree, Dave Holloway, Dave Arnold (Euro RSCG), Cliff Skeete (Y&R), Francois Grouiller (GSP), Stuart Brown (GSP), Niklas Lilja (GSP), Shameka Brown Barbosa (Uniworld), Desmond Hall (Global Hue), Keith Cartwright (Wieden and Kennedy), Perry Fair (Grey NY), Toni Thompson (McCann), Joanna Jenkins (Global Hue), Vince Smith (Global Hue) and Vann Graves (McCann).
To promote the upcoming Boot Camp, designer Joe Duffy will be using hundreds of pictures of students and creatives from diverse backgrounds to create the faces of advertising great David Ogilvy and design legend Paul Rand, with the message: “Diversity will change the face of Advertising and Design.”

If it’s truly a 3-day look at everything that’s happening in the ad world, it’ll be a whirlwind for students who don’t know what to expect.
