And that’s game!

The previous post didn’t have a whole lot of time to cool off of the press. No sooner than that was posted, the results for the final round for Young Glory had just come in. (Okay, well to be fair it was about a day, but still).

So topping out with 121 points … us. (Less gloating after the image break)

ygSo yeah, there you go. We never did this to win it. It’s easier to sit here and spout off a cliché comment like that, but it’s true. In fact when I was explaining this to the rest of the team back in October, my big thing was that we just need to submit ideas before the deadlines. If we did that, bam, immediate 40 points.  Admittedly some of those submissions were minutes before the cut off. But that’s what we did for 8 months. Every Saturday, we headed in to the school, found a place to set up, and talked for about 4 – 5 hours every time. 2, 3, 4 cups of coffee, arguments, back-and-forth. It was hard work but a lot of fun. We got to do a lot of really cool stuff. I can speak for everyone when I say that I am glad we did this.

So thanks for the support. Thanks to Academy of Art University for letting us use their walls to think about some pretty abstract problems. Thank you to Jim Riswold who gave us the first real kick in the face we needed. Thanks to all the other judges, especially Eva Van Den Bulcke.

Now if you will excuse us, we are all going to go outside and get some(much needed) sun 🙂

Nothing left to do now but wait

We have done our part for Young Glory. At the beginning of this month, we as a team found that we had a “Helluvalot” more free time than we were used to. With School ending for three out of the four of us, and our final submission for Young Glory left the fate of SOAP, we have the carte blanche to do whatever. That being said, this page has (heh, once again) been a little neglected.

I am going to be making it a priority to tackle the issues with our page, namely listing out all of our submissions for this year’s competition season, so look for an update about all of that soon (there is quite a bit). Hope everyone is enjoying the sun. This is the first time we have seen it, in literally, eight months.

Mild shout out(s)– Nice job to the Academy of Art for killing it in the National Addys. The department took home a gold and a silver. And then to our good friends who were able to snag a D&AD. Oh and then for the guys who also took a One Show pencil. The Advertising Department has come a long way in the short time I had been there, and has really turned into a contender with other schools.
