Intern-view: Nicole Wong on Christian Dior

A while back I stopped posting here on TBC because I felt like it was becoming a chore and it just wasn’t fun anymore. So, I took a break. A long hiatus that gave me time to reevaluate my life, what I wanted to do, and more importantly what I didn’t want to be doing.

Intern-view: Anissa Villaverde on Ogilvy & Mather

For us mere mortals, advertising is a mythical world full of beautiful people, whose day job is to find ingenious ways to sell us things we don’t need. Or at least, I think it is, thanks to Mad Men. But because we’re The Border Collective, we decided that it’s time for everyone to find out the truth about ad agencies the best way we know how. Through an Intern-view!
