Great Minds of Advertising


by Madeleine Faye Amante

As future advertisers, we value every commercials, posters, billboards, etc., that we are seeing, every day. We notice the good and witty advertisements while the boring and plain are unrecognized. As advertising students of UST, it is important to know who are the people behind these amazing ads. For me, we should make them as an inspiration because of the innate versatility of their minds.

I will be gratified to learn the techniques, approach, and ways of making a brilliant Concept. I learn a lot from these articles and some books in the library but I know these readings are not enough. As advertising students of UST, we are privileged to have Advertising Practice as a course and we are able to learn things first hand from our professors. Advertising Practice I think is the most important course for me because I will soon be working in the Advertising world, every lecture taught in class is a great way to feed our minds. I hope that someday we will also be on these articles and books to be able to inspire the next generation of artists.

A Page Where We Can Exchange Letters

My Dear Students,

I have started to make a page like this and I aim to make one for all my students.

kenzo_ss14_campaign_fy1-2For co-authors who are also my students at UST (find your individual page here), my aim here is for each of us to continually converse as we spend time and energy as learner-teacher. This is very helpful for me, too, in assessing your performance come grading time.

Do communicate to me a lot by including the links of practically anything that will make me believe that you are doing your best to learn Advertising. I suggest we communicate the old-fashioned way: by way of letters as if these are going to be sent via snail mail. There is more feeling to this mode of communication and what you are feeling about the subject is what I wish to know and understand, too.

I have revised our course outline to add two more topics on Building Relationships. This serves as the basis (though not the only one) for our conversation.

I find Facebook and other online resources useful, too, and I wish to be friends with you in that side of the social networks. Sharing with you my other activities and on-line presences.
