If you are a student of advertising you must read Makin Ads. This goes double if you feel as though you are not learning everything you can about breaking into advertising. The blog’s authors Jim Bosiljevac and Greg Christensen have become two extra professors, except they provide better advice for free. This blog doesn’t give you a road-map to getting a job but it provokes you to think about what you are gently placing into your portfolio. They talk about their personal experience, students and concepts to guide students with the the friendly message “Please remember: everything written here might be wrong.”
Even if they are wrong the blog makes for a great read and is a perfect place to start for an ad student.
