GDC Fall 2010 Interns

1,443 views

Published on

They’re not on Madison Avenue yet, but our batch of fall 2010 interns is on their way to becoming industry bigwigs in the next few decades. The nine of them teamed up on their first group assignment to produce a themed piece introducing each of themselves, their background and the department they’ll be working in for next few months. They chose a decidedly old-school theme inspired by AMC’s award-winning series Mad Men, which profiles the glory days of advertising back in the ‘60s.

GDC Fall 2010 Interns

  1. 1. Creative department account executives Bellfesta • Northander • Classwhitt • Cekhan • Reis The nine GDC interns of fall 2010 hopped into the DeLorean, flashed back 50 years and created an ad agency – Mad Men style. Surprisingly, we’ve adapted quite well to this era. Our group is unlike the employees at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce in that women are the majority. But when 5 o’clock rolls around – sometimes a bit earlier – we still break out the highball glasses and Zippos. A full bar replaces the kitchen, and that meditation room? It’s more of a smoking lounge. Bellfesta Northander Classwhitt Cekhan Reis inspires change too, but the source of our inspiration is a little bit different. Take a minute to learn the methods to our madness…

A Red Bull and a protein bar are all this outspoken leader needs for inspiration.
  5. 5. Name: kristen classen Hometown: SAN ANTONIO, TX College: TRINITY UNIVERSITY major: BUSINESS ADMIN/MKTG Intern Position: RESEARCH Hobby: ARTS & CRAFTS COLOR: GOLD Drink of choice: Intuitive Kristen knows how to read White Russian people, and she’s got the education and background to prove it.

If only there were some sort of global network of computers with which he could use to connect with consumers. Oh well.
  8. 8. Name: Jessica Northey Hometown: Atlanta, GA College: IADT major: Advertising Design Intern Position: Creative Hobby: LEISURE TRAVEL COLOR: ORANGE Drink of choice: Jessica diligently brainstorms to uncover Moscow Mule the perfect image, then she puts pencil to paper until it really pops. Her design sense is fresh, just like her favorite drink, the Moscow Mule. Even though she can be bit soft-spoken at times, her ideas are always the life of the party. She’s more about doing than talking.
  9. 9. Name: Carl reis Hometown: san antonio, tx College: utsa major: marketing Intern Position: new business Hobby: music COLOR: GOLD Drink of choice: Carl lights the match and brings it to Whiskey Sour end of the client’s cigarette.
