The ad industry is challenging, but it can also be fun. Milwaukee Portfolio School introduced me to the extent of both. The portfolio I built there opened the agency doors I was looking for, and the creative techniques I learned still serve me to this day. They created a casual, welcoming experience that was also a firehose of the science behind advertising. The lessons I learned in this class, combined with the experience I gained while tackling the homework assignments between sessions, proved absolutely on-point, and completely invaluable.
