Many of you know that one of the things I do is teach at two colleges. I’ve always said that my students are among the best in the world.
This term at Art Center College of Design, 7 out of 10 award nominations for the AICP (Association of Independent Commercial Producers) were taken by my "kids." As well, they placed highly for various Art Director awards and Young Directors Awards (at Cannes).
Nominees and winners included John Carey, Ted Marcus, Gevorg Karapetyan, Michael Lutter, Ian Cameron, Kyle Murphey and Paul Linkogle. (If I left anyone out, I apologize. Let me know.)
Teaching is for a class, and private consulting is tailored exactly to the individual…but there ARE similarities.
Every student, as well as every client, has a goal. It all comes from them.
My emphasis is on making sure the person has the understanding and skills needed to get into action, actually accomplishing what they have decided to create.
Well done to all the above!
