How Far You Go Is Up to You

Miami Ad School gives you the tools to succeed. Here are three alumni recently named to top creative jobs.

Miami Ad School graduates start as junior art directors, copywriters, designers and photographers. Where have they gone from there? The answers to that question are as diverse as our grads. Some run agencies and lead creative groups. Others manage brands, write books, make films or create gift wrap your family will love because your face is on it.

From here, you can go wherever you want.

Andrew joined Crispin, Porter + Bogusky right after graduation from Portfolio Center/
Miami Ad School Atlanta. During his 17-year career at CP+B he rose through the
ranks, from Art Director to Partner/CEO. Then early this year he left Crispin to join
Facebook, making him one of the most prominent examples of the expanded opportunities
available to people pursuing creative careers
