Nina completed her Diploma in Graphic Design and Art Direction in 1995. She’s had an astounding career in advertising thus far, working for agencies such as Ogilvy, Saatchi & Saatchi Brandsrock, Zoom Advertising and MullenLowe, to name but a few.
She takes us back to her colourful days with the school and some highlights to how her career was shaped with us:
- How has Red & Yellow contributed to shaping your career success?
It was literally the catapult into the world of advertising – I started working at Ogilvy before I even graduated. In those days R&Y was run exactly like an agency so integrating into the real world of advertising was no great shock – particularly having been ‘educated’ by Brian and Alan!
- What is the one thing that stands out from your time with us?
Being told by Brian that “that’s the worst piece of f***ing advertising I’ve ever seen” – running out of his office in a state, doing it again and then getting the top mark for that project!
- What do you believe is critical for career success in the 21st century?
Adapt, adopt, evolve – constantly! Travel. Be a sponge! And never ever never say “but it’s not my job!’
- What is your superpower?
My age – and with it, my experience! ????????
