As far as experiencing Paris itself, Ogilvy is in the idyllic location. Right off the Champs Elysees. A bunch of fun places to eat for lunch everyday. A three block walk from a view of the Eiffel Tower. All of the hustle and bustle you can imagine from Paris. And people around the city are relatively nice and not being able to speak French isn’t really a problem. The city is everything said about it, lovely, romantic and very French.
Ogilvy Paris teaches you to think visually. It is a great chance to learn a different perspective. Constant concepting for about 95% of the time. Projects, some with a turnaround of two days. Some that are worked on for the entire time. The agency, like the city, is unique. But you wouldn’t go to Paris in the first place, if it wasn’t Paris.
