Big Ideas from a Small World

Holy Carp! My Old Teacher just showed up on Scott Goodson’s blog!

I think this is worth a read…

Scott Goodson of Strawberry Frog (you already knew that) just interviewed one of the most passionate ad educators you’ll ever meet – Anthony Kalamut (Professor | Program Chair of Creative Advertising and Seneca College School of Communication Arts).

In fact saying that this little interview is “worth a read” would discredit me as a copywriter – this piece is in fact, simply one of the most inspiring reads for young creative talent.

Here is JUST one of the the questions:

Anything else you wish to add about young adlanders?

Hire more juniors.

If you’re willing to shepherd them just a little, the returns are as massive as penny stocks or Seattle.

They cared about the environment before green washing.

They wore street ware before 7-up or Threadless caught on.

They are multi-cultural to a degree that puts this industry to shame.

They always knew bankers where up to something.

They will sell their blood, sweat and tears for one chance at greatness.

How do I know this?

Because I get up every morning for these kids and I can call them my kids because I’m proud to say I have watched them grow into real live “adlanders”.

Seeing that published, even if it’s just in the blog-o-sphere makes me jump with joy!

HIRE MORE JUNIORS!
