Our next meeting this Tuesday (3/4) at 7:30pm in MLC 214 with David Haan and Kathryn Harmon from the Creative Circus, a creative portfolio school in Atlanta, who will be speaking about Grady’s Summer at The Circus Program. If you are interested in pursuing a career in the creative side of advertising, you do NOT want to miss this meeting! You can RSVP to attend the event here.
The Creative Circus has partnered with the Grady College to offer Summer at The Circus, an eight-week program involving concepting, branding, marketing and packaging all taught in the unconventional style that The Circus is known for. Several of our club members participated in the program this past summer and had great experiences. For more information please visit this link: http://www.summeratthecircus.com/
