What’s in my Office Thursday: Meet CPS Alum David Thimmesch, Copywriter at BVK in Milwaukee.
Check out his advice:
“You get out what you put in. It’s cliché, but absolutely true. If all you do is show up to class, get feedback, make a few changes and come back the following week…you WILL NOT have a portfolio at the end of the year. You need to work nights, work weekends, talk to instructors after class, meet up at coffee shops and work like it’s a full-time job (because it should be).”
“Always give the instructors more than what they asked for. Because the more you show, the easier it’ll be to find that killer idea. Don’t be afraid to pursue a concept you’re passionate about, but at the same time, don’t be stubborn and hold onto bad ideas that have been killed for good reasons. It’s a tough balance, but remember, your instructors are there to help. Trust them.”
