Internship Experience at ShootersINC. – Elizabeth Moore
My name is Elizabeth Moore. I am currently a senior at Temple University majoring in Advertising with a track in Account Management. I got a great internship/opportunity to work at a production company called ShootersINC. in Philadelphia at the Curtis Center (between 6th and 7th on Walnut). It has been my second week here and I absolutely love it. I’ve been spending a lot of my time in the Sales/Marketing department by conducting sales research and assisting the sales team whenever they need it. I intern Monday and Fridays from 9-5 and try to constantly stay busy and on top of the daily tasks.
Are You #TempleMade?
Today, May 6th, at 9PM, “Branded”, a film by Cameron S. Mithcell, will be premiering at The Pearl on Broad Street. The film looks inside the Temple Made campaign through the eyes of students, faculty, alumni, and the marketing team that started it all. “Branded” is an opportunity to experience and discuss the impact of the influential campaign and its affect on the Temple community. It is a cherry and white movement that has expanded Temple’s reach not only in the city of Philadelphia and surrounding areas, but also nationwide with its influential ads in print, TV, and online. There will be a Q&A discussion following the premiere. The premiere will screen twice, first at 9PM and second at 9:30PM. You can RSVP to the event for free admission.
PETA Uses Temple Student’s Winning Ad
PETA released a shocking new mobile billboard last week to remind attendees at the 2013 Kentucky Derby that for the horses, racing is a matter of life or death. The ad was placed up and down the streets surrounding the racetrack in the days leading up to and the day of the event. The message drawn across through the ad is to bring awareness to the misuse of both therapeutic and illegal drugs that the industry uses to keep injured and tired horses running for the race. The ad was actually created by Temple University’s Tyler School of Art graphic design student, Dana Mulranen. The poster was created for the 2012 One Show Young Ones Competition and awarded the One Club Bronze Pencil as well as Runner Up in Creative Quarterly 31.
Temple Study Abroad: A New Appreciation for the Web
Redesigning any website is hard work, but when said website involves more extra options than a Domino’s Pizza order for an entire daycare center, things get hairy pretty quickly.
Yes, I’ve been working my proverbial tail off all year in order to help Temple’s own Study Abroad department redesign their website from the ground up. And let me tell you, crafting a website that feels intuitive and natural is seriously hard work. I’ve spent my months doing everything from creating short, documentary-style films to writing copy for overseas programs, and I’m not sure that most outsiders truly realize the amount of effort that goes into making a website that merely does not get in your way every day.
Inside View on NSAC
Temple University’s NSAC team did an amazing job finishing up their competition last week placing fourth out of fourteen teams who presented in front of the NY judges! That’s a great accomplishment for all students involved in the process. This week, I sat down with graduating Advertising-Art Direction student, Angela Lanza, to talk to her about NSAC in general and what it’s like to participate in the competition for future Temple students who may be interested in trying it out.
The Free Journal Project
I recently came across an amazing project developed by Kelly Clawson, a fellow advertising student here at Temple and President of the Temple Ad Club. The Free Journal Project is a socially based art project founded in providing free handcrafted journals, for all to use and enjoy. The project focuses on making journal keeping accessible and enjoyable while establishing a space for personal inspiration and creativity.
Rolling with the PUNCHes at my First Internship
This semester I began my very first internship at PUNCH Media, a very small PR company based in the Mount Airy section of Northwest Philadelphia. It is owned and run by James Zeleniak and Alicia Crawford-Zeleniak, both of whom are Temple alums. PUNCH is food and beverage centric with clients such as South Philly Bar & Grill, McCrossen’s Tavern and MilkBoy, but also represent others, such as the Shops at Liberty Place.
“Design is creativity with strategy.”
Students at Temple see thousands of advertisements on campus each day. Some are hung on bulletin boards; others are passed out on Liacouras Walk. But the ads and event posters hanging in the Louis J. Esposito Dining Center and the Valaida S. Walker Food Court in the Student Center—are made by me and the rest of the marketing team at Sodexo!
More than a religion, more than a consumer.
Well, according to a study performed by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life, 35% of Americans view Muslims in a negative light. Another 45% believe Islam to be more of a violent religion than any other.
Temple University Portfolio Night!
The Temple Advertising Club (TAC) will be having a Portfolio Night open to students both in the creative and accounting tracks. There will be advertising professionals from all over Philadelphia including ad agencies Razorfish, Dudnyk and LevLane. Don’t miss out on a great chance to network and get professional feedback about your creative pieces!
98.1 WOGL: Greatest Hits of the 60s, 70s, & 80s
In January I started an internship at CBS Radio’s 98.1 WOGL. This radio station reaches an older demographic (25-54) and plays the gratest hits of the 60s, 70s, and 80s.
One might ask… Ashley, why do you think you would fit in at a radio station that does not even reach your demographic? And my answer for that: I already know how to generally reach my demographic since I’m apart of it! I’m knowledgeable of what is hip and new, and have experience with reaching out to college students. What I am interested in at this internship is that I can learn how to target an older demo, and compare the differences in how to approach younger people and older people.
Make yourself more valuable to the organization!
Interning at the Avenue of the Arts (a non-profit organization) has proven to be an exciting and full-filling position. I’m working under the Marketing Coordinator and the Executive Director. Right now, we’re working to create presentations to inform businesses of who we are, what we do, and how we can partner with them to benefit both parties involved. Since it’s a small office, I get to be involved in this process and I’ll be helping them to present our partnership opportunities.
New Identity Design: ‘All About Tea’
The agency Moving Brands, created this new identity for “All About Tea” based in Portsmouth, UK.
Their execution makes sense based on the brief: “Moving Brands were tasked with creating a new identity that would stand out in a “sea of sameness.” The identity needed to work effectively across their existing wholesale market, and enable them to grow into retail channels. It was also vital to communicate the founder’s passion for the art and intricacies of tea.”
Activia Campaign by Young & Rubicam
Okay, so Activia has a new campaign that just launched, developed by Young & Rubicam. They are an agency based out of Prague, Czech Republic.
I’m sure that they were going for a concept that they wanted to really spark an interest among society towards this apparent problem, I think they just pissed a few people off though.
Dine Like A Boss *Etiquette Dinner*
The East West Club is having a “Dine like a Boss” etiquette dinner. Come in professional attire and learn how to present yourself professionally. Get the opportunity to network and most importantly try out new and delicious Asian food. Only a real boss would come experience this fine dining.
Electronic Paper – The Note Slate
Stated to not be available until June, the $99 tablet for taking “digi-notes” won’t necessarily compete with the iPad, and that’s not the point. At least I don’t think so. The idea is something that has been exaggerated about for years in movies and publications, now we are finally shedding some light on an actual product.
Back to the Basics
Volkswagen is releasing a new 30 second spot for their second generation “neue” beetle. Created by Deutsch Inc., located in New York and Los Angeles. Unfortunately they have a flash site, which isn’t very up on the times, but I’ll look past that after seeing this spot.
The Modern Telephone Concept
Not only is the video especially inspiring, due to the content and also the ambient soundtrack, but the concept is ingenious.
If produced, this phone will be a huge step forward in application development and in design. We are talking about three touch screens here as opposed to our current standard of one.
"Philly's Future" Scholarship Winner From Temple
We’d like to offer our congratulations to Mr. Jason Kaminsky for being a “Philly’s Future” scholarship winner. Here’s Jason’s take on what advertising means to him. I can definitely relate to what he’s saying. I started out graphic designing also, but I’d like to remain a “creative.” I’m not sure if creatives have a need for jackets and ties, but I’d be all for it.
