MORE BRIDGES THAN ANY CITY IN THE WORLD.
Maybe more fish restaurants, more theatres, museums. And possibly more red light houses: Hamburg is a city of extremes—great, refined culture next to wild and raunchy pop culture.
Hamburg is the perfect place to get started on pop culture engineering. A terrific environment for a young creative person who wants to twist and turn what is happening this minute—no, this second—into crazy and wonderful ideas. That become unforgettable despite an audience preoccupied with their iPods and cell phones. So what? Cell phones, iPods, car phones, lap tops, they’re all part of pop culture media.
Pop culture is really your major subject at this school, be it as an Art Director, Copywriter or Graphic Artist. And the way our students and grads have mastered this subject may very well have revolutionized European advertising education. Since its inception just a few years ago, Miami Ad School Europe has swept the student advertising awards consistently and our graduates are highly sought by the agencies in Germany and the other European countries.
Recently one of our students, Menno Kluin, from Holland, won Student of the Year in Germany, Student of the Year in Holland, Student of the Year in Lürzer Archive magazine and Student of the year at Young Guns in Australia. Menno had his choice of positions when he graduated; he chose Saatchi in New York after his positive experience on his Quarter Away in New York City.
Like Menno, our graduates are highly sought by the agencies in Germany and the other European countries as Art Directors, Copy Writers or Graphic Artists. Now, Europe has a school that produces graduates highly trained, ready to go work at an ad agency, able to contribute the first day on the job.
Your teachers will come straight from the biz; and from the best agencies in town. Just to name a few of them:
- Gerrit Gley (Founder Conrad Gley Thieme)
- Jo Marie Farwick (Hybrid Creative Director Heimat)
- Frank Dovidat (CEO Publicis)
- Jan Rexhausen (CCO Jung von Matt)
- Roman Raacke (Photographer)
- Felix Schlüter (Typeholics)
- Florian Sigl (Bakery Film)
- Pete Serjeant (Global Branding Director G2)
- Gerrit Kleinfeld (Creative Director, Freelance)
They all will give you briefings directly off their daily work, and they will apply the real world standards. Sometimes they’ll be tough; but be asured: they’re always benevolent! And they’ll will prepare you perfectly for what comes after school: The everyday creative madness of an ambitious agency.
