New York was absolutely amazing. I cannot put into words how much I enjoyed it. To be honest I didn't take that many decent photos because I was so busy taking everything in. While I was over there I went into several agencies including Walrus NYC which was hilarious! My work for my advertising modules seemed to be heading in a similar direction and theme to Walrus' which was great. Deacon looked through my book which I'd brought with me and I got some really useful feedback.

Next stop was JWT where I met Renetta Welty the creative recruiter there. She was lovely and they actually gave us a live brief for Rolex which is really interesting. Zoe and I then dashed off to Teen Vogue. Now Teen Vogue MADE the whole trip for me, we met Zan Goodman from the Art Department who looked after us while we were there. I saw Amy Astley from a distance, touched both Anna Wintours and Amy's copy of 'the book' and also got to chat with Eva Chen teen vogue's beauty editor who let us loose in the beauty cupboard and told us to take what we wanted. See the second photo for evidence! Zan at the end of our trip also gave us copies of the new magazine which provided lovely reading material for the plane journey home.

We did a lot of other stuff including the design seminar where I heard Paula Scher and Milton Glaser speak, had our photos on a billboard in times sq and had the most amazing meal in the stardust diner on broadway. Overall it was one of the best experiences of my life and I'm so glad I decided to go!
