Greetings

Hi,

I’m Luis Carranza, a new writer at Beyond Madison Avenue. I am honored to be in such good company. I like all things related to technology, media, and design. I also blog at adcentered.com, mediamedium.weebly.com and beneaththebrand.com. Richmond, VA is my home at the moment. The weather is mild and breezy tonight. It’s 77º in El Salvador. I was born there, but spent most of my life in Reston, VA. Go Seahawks!

I’m a fan of great communication in any form. I’m always on the lookout. I’m studying Creative Brand Management at VCU Brandcenter. But I prefer to consider myself a rogue creative in an MBA suit. Well, maybe not so much an MBA or a suit for that matter. I’m not really that rogue either. I did major in art direction in undergrad.
One of the coolest jobs I’ve ever had, involved watching agency reels and advertising award shows all day. I even did some overtime. I needed the money, but that’s neither here nor there. I currently work as a freelance digital strategist because that just makes sense. There’s so much going on in our industry right now, and honestly, I’m just trying to figure it out. It’s a good time.
Luis Carranza

What You Need You Have To Borrow

If you’re currently growing up in New York City, you can get a big head start on a career in advertising.

fame.jpg

In the mold of Fiorello H. La Guardia High School of Music and the Arts, starting next fall there will be a new public high school in Brooklyn for those interested in pursuing careers in advertising.

According to Ad Age:

The New York City Department of Education has approved the High School for Innovation in Advertising and Media. It will be located on the campus of Canarsie High School in Brooklyn and is expected to be up and running by September 2008.

Organizers hope the school will hook young minorities on a career in advertising, which has long been criticized for its lack of diversity.

I was 29 when I figured out I wanted a career in advertising. But if I was 15 and living in the future in Brooklyn, I’d want to go to this school. Then I could skip college, polish my book at Miami Ad School, get hired by a shop in Amsterdam (where Lions roam free) and eventually head to London for the money.
