Miami Ad School is throwing a Super Bowl party and hosting The 3% Conference Tweetup. Real-time feedback from women at the party and across America on their attitudes toward the 2016 Super Bowl commercials will show which spots connect with women. Super Bowl spots that appeal to women have the best return on investment, because women buy products and share on social media in greater numbers than men on Super Bowl Sunday.
PORTFOLIO CENTER (Miami Ad School's location in Atlanta) along with the Museum of Design Atlanta is sponsoring a series on the evolution of design in business and what role designers play in making a company successful. This is a free series.
At Miami Ad School, from the day you start, you learn by doing. This video, created by three, first-quarter students, is an example of that philosophy. The project, part of their Video Storytelling course, was "Why Miami Ad School?". The finished two-minute video, a collection of interviews of students and staff and footage of the school, tells the reason "why". In the process of telling their story the students learned to shoot, light, direct and edit.
Jeff Kirschner will exhibit photographs from his ongoing project Litterati, which is harnessing the power of social media and geo-tagging technology to quantify the problem, educate the public about the issue and clean up the planet—one piece of litter at a time.
All of Miami Ad School's locations are very dog-friendly places (as are many ad agencies, design firms and companies like Google). Students, instructors and staff are welcome to bring their dogs. The school's founders bring their dogs, currently three, to school everyday. When the dogs aren't in class or playing ball they hang out in Ron and Pippa's offices. Lately the newest school mascot, a Doberwoman, has been very busy redecorating. Read the story of the accidental mascot
My first impression was that this place would be my saving grace. You see, I had just been offered a starter job. In insurance. It was about the most horrifyingly bleak and boring prospect you can imagine. Grasping at straws, I asked my parents for the chance to tour Miami Ad School. There it was exactly the opposite. With its murals and fluorescent pink walls, I could tell that this was like no school I'd been to before.
