Which brings me to this point.
There’s something about speaking to students that’s unlike clients or peers – and we really must make sure we do everything we can to say the right thing. Unlike us jaded “professionals”, their creative souls are worth protecting and I, for one, don't want to be responsible for having a student’s beliefs in this business going off track or being disenfranchised by some insipid comment or demotivating presentation. I find the pressure even greater speaking to a group of students than it is talking to a boardroom full of our most esteemed clients.
On a lighter note.
Thursday, I joined our own super-recruiter Tammy Skuraton on a tour of the ever-growing SCAD campus. There many buildings frame the city and each is unique with its own sense of history and architectural power. One’s ideas would seem to automatically elevate an entire grade just because of the inspiring environment that gave birth to them. The highlight was the new SCAD Museum Art, which stands as a monument to Savannah heritage and breathtaking modern ambition.
Tonight: SCADDY Awards and our presentation of the first ever Draftfcb Best of Show Award. Stay tuned.
