I studied fine arts and communications in college and graduated with a mish mash portfolio of sculpture, drawings, paintings, design, photos and some of the worst print ads ever created. I was basically qualified to work at a folding table.
So I took a job as a ?media coordinator? at a small agency in Philadelphia. I weaseled my way into the studio by helping out at night and on the weekends. After a few months the CD brought me into the creative department full-time. A couple years later I got an AD title.
I moved to ATL to work at WestWayne in ?05 and I left to freelance just before they turned into 22 Squared in ?07. I?d been freelancing in ATL and traveling for the last year. But I just moved to Sydney on July 20th to work at Three Drunk Monkeys.
I think Atlanta has a lot of talent and creativity. But it?s not as in-your-face as NYC or SF. You have to search for it a bit harder in Atlanta.
