THE PROBLEM: No book, no job, no way I was shelling out for portfolio school after undergrad.
THE SOLUTION: I concepted, wrote and designed this print & outdoor series for Mont Blanc pens during my last semester of school. Then, on a whim, I entered it into Archive Magazine's International Student of the Year contest—and won.
I was stoked. Especially since I was up against hundreds of students at esteemed portfolio schools wordwide, including VCU, Miami Ad School, and The Creative Circus. Best of all, it got me a job.
