I have imagined my future agency working self, as I would imagine most advertising students have, and to be quite honest, I’ve always imagined myself at an agency on the larger side. This might be because I prefer to dream big, but I will admit I was very excited to see what it was like to intern at a smaller agency.
MOD isn’t just smaller; it is tiny. Between two bosses/account managers, a copywriter who comes in once a week, an art director, a graphic designer, a web master, and several interns, the agency itself is pretty small. However, that doesn’t mean meek clients. I have always been under the impression that to work with big names, you would have to work at big time agencies. However, I learned this is not that case from interning at MOD. Their clients may not have been names I necessarily heard of before, as they deal primarily in real estate, but I realized that the clients they do have are serious. And MOD delivers serious solutions. Size is not as much of a factor as I thought it would be in an agency; David can really be on Goliath’s level.
