They Have Ideas

Portfolio Night entered its 10th year this week, spanning 18 cities across the globe, including New York, on May 23 at the headquarters of WPP Group’s Grey. Sponsored by ihaveanidea.org, the event brings together agency creative directors who meet one-on-one with aspiring copywriters, art directors, and nowadays, creative technologists, to review their portfolios. Brett McKenzie, Creative Manager and lead on Giant Hydra (IHAVEANIDEA’s collaborative crowd sourcing project) talked about what Portfolio Night is all about and why it’s important to the advertising community. A London gentleman named Sherry spoke about how the event helped him make important connections in the industry. Guyen Dinh, a graduate of Columbia College in Chicago, said she always wanted to live in New York and was thrilled to be attending Portfolio Night for the first time.
