An interview with Jim Winters, neon artist and founder of Bulldog Neon.

JW: I picked up neon in the late 80"s when I started to make neon spark plug wires for cars and motorcycles, then the whole Miami Vice/Sobe era hit and people started asking me to make all kinds of neon, hence the birth of Bulldog Neon. I'm a former Marine so the bulldog seemed to be the perfect logo and mascot for my company.

I'm excited to announce that Miami Ad School has a new portfolio system for students!

We partnered with Squarespace, a simple and infinitely customizable portfolio platform.

No one hated our old school portfolio system more than me! The platform, like many existing portfolio platforms, was based on one static template but I wanted students to be able to customize the look of their sites to showcase their unique skills and personality. There had to be a site that would allow students to insert code and create a new experience for anyone visiting their site. We kept looking for an easy-to-use, customizable and inexpensive alternative. Squarespace, was the answer.
