Past Events

Here’s some stuff AdInk has done… in the past!

Covid Fall 2020 — Mini Groups!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

For the Fall 2020 term, when Covid-19 was just beginning to spread across the United States, Northwest held in-person classes, but everything was scaled back. No clubs met in person, which meant AdInk had to break into smaller groups that could meet either in person or in Zoom.

We held one in-person, outdoor event at the beginning of the semester. That’s were we broke into our first of 3 mini-group sessions. Every three weeks we changed mini-groups, so that each AdCat could belong to more than one group.

Graduate AdCats joined the mini-groups by Zoom to meet current students and help them through this tough time.

We managed to make it through the entire semester having in-person classes at Northwest. There were many Covid cases, and many more disappointments, but we did it! We made it through a semester of college during a worldwide pandemic!

Angela Bode — Senior Art Director, Rogers Townsend, St. Louis

Angela Bode visited Feb. 26, 2020.

She shared her story of graduating without the full creative portfolio she desired. Her first job was an internship, and she solicited advice from several art directors in New York City — a trip she took by herself just to meet the art directors. She helped us understand how much effort goes into building a strong creative and design portfolio.

Her work ethic is evident. Angela and a teammate won the 2019 Cannes Young Lions for the digital category for their work for Brave beginnings. See the complete winning entry here.

If you want to work in advertising (or marketing, graphic design, public relations, social media…), then you’ll need to stay plugged into the AAF-KC  — that is, the American Advertising Federation, Kansas City chapter. AdInk will help you do that. For starters, we’ll take a bus to AAF’s Career Day/”Spark KC” in the fall. For now, why not follow them on Twitter: @aafkc.
