So what's a career in advertising like? We'll answer that question, and the next two: What are the courses like, and how can they help me get a job in the creative department of an ad agency? This lecture will have several members of the advertising faculty (current creatives) on hand, expressing their passion for creating ads and explaining how their courses work. We will discuss the roles of art directors, copywriters and creative directors. There will be time for questions and answers, and a short portfolio review at the end of the program. You'll leave inspired to create great advertising... or at the very least, knowing if this is a career you want to pursue.

Advertising

Advertising is all around us. From morning to night we’re bombarded with ads on our smartphones, on our trains and taxis, on billboards, on TV and the Internet. Only the best can stand out from the cacophony. How do you come up with those exceptional ideas?

SVA has professional faculty who are currently working in the ad business as copywriters, art directors, entrepreneurs and more. They are uniquely situated to help you create clever concepts, write the best copy— and very importantly—how to convince others that your concept is the right one, and how to execute. We’ll help you get to where you want to be in advertising—be it for career change or career advancement.
