Advertising students at San Jose State University get a Taste of Miami Ad School.

Sessions, beamed live from Miami, offer university students a taste of the projects students at Miami Ad School's locations around the world are immersed in.

The Spartan's first Taste of Miami Ad School was a selection from the course, Voice of Type, presented by Polish designer and Miami Ad School instructor, Monika Pobog-Malinowska. The course is part of the art direction, copywriting and Masters programs at MAS. Monika said, "My session with the students was early in the morning but I didn't need coffee because I was so excited to spend the hour sharing and talking with them about type. Some of the examples I presented were smart, others were funny. I knew the students were looking at fonts in a new way when they actually started laughing at a logotype."

I'm a former Marine so the bulldog seemed to be the perfect logo and mascot for my company.
