Federico Freschi, the Executive Dean of FADA at UJ opened the first ever Portfolio Night event in SA last night. The event, hosted by McCann Johannesburg, brought together some 37 creative directors, the industry leaders, who put aside agency rivalry to participate for the greater good of the creative industry.
The first ever South African Portfolio Night takes place in Johannesburg next week. We quizzed some of the participating creative directors in the lead up. First up is Grame Jenner of King James II and Pierre Odendaal of McCann.
Portfolio Night is a global, annual event where aspiring young advertising copywriters, art directors and designers meet with several renowned advertising creative directors in a fast-paced evening of career-shaping advice, networking, and for some, recruitment offers.
