For university work, I decided it would be a great opportunity to interview people in the field, to also allow me to get a new perspective of what is real outside in the actual advertising world.

One agency that gave me an opportunity was GreyPortugal, from the Grey Group, belonging to WPP. I was recieved by Production Director Rui Santos, who is working for about 5 years so far with GreyPortugal, under the Prod’G wing, the production aspect of the agency.

All in all, he helped me answer all work-related questions, and also giving me a massive insight into a lot I might expect from my desired work as Art Director, qualities percieved, how the market and world is going about, everything really. Also ended up giving me a brief tour and presentation of the facilities, get to take a look around at how others worked, and the kind of tools used.

Hopefully next I’ll be able to talk with the creative director of Grey, pending avaliable time. Having learned a lot with Rui Santos, this would more be about personal growth and having an even closer look at the creative aspect.

We’ll see.
