LIFE'S A PITCH : Creative Bootcamp, Chicago 2016

The Marcus Graham Project is a diversity in advertising project. This group gives students of advertising a unique opportunity to work with a group of hand picked individuals from diverse backgrounds and skill sets.

In January, 2015, I was selected to work with a group of 15 rising advertising students by the Marcus Graham Project. We worked in Chicago out of the Leo Burnett offices for their New Business Department.


The Projects

In addition to our client work, I worked with a team including another Art Director/Illustrator, Copywriter, and Producer to create visual assets for our mini ad agency, STIR. We were also tasked with promoting and hosting Marcus Graham's podcast, The Drum

MEET THE TEAM : Katie Jarecki, Art Director

What was the craziest job or career move you had ever taken?
Our Producer created a video depicting our lives during our time at STIR. For this project, they included a "Meet The Team" portion, where our team was asked about craziest jobs they had ever taken, travel, and more!

The Drum Social Media

I helped concept and source imagery and messaging for The Drum's social media advertisements. I worked with our producer to gather film clips for this short video and worked with our Illustrator/AD to create layouts for her stunning visuals.
