JWU's Journey to NationalsBy Rob Erskine '12Creative technologist, Hill Holiday
Our Nissan Campaign Ad Team was my absolute favorite part of JWU. I learned the most, created my best work and made
some of my best friends.
My creative team came up with some absolutely mind blowing creative executions.
In one month, we went from having no research insights into a complete campaign and plans book that encompassed our “Innovation that matters” print campaigns and video/broadcast campaign.

Presenting to Ad Pros Our team did an amazing job presenting our campaign at the national stage in Austin, TX at the American Advertising Federation Admerica conference — in front of judges that directly worked with Nissan.
Our Q&A session went amazing. It was a breath of satisfaction as we walked out of there, followed by many hugs and high fives — we felt really good about everything we had done.
Feels Good to Win One of our advisors, Professor Chilabato, usually teases me over how frequently I eat. But the Admerica! awards luncheon was a huge exception. I was too excited to eat.
For the second year in a row, we finished third in the NSAC — right above the University of Miami, the reigning champions. I was asked to hold the trophy for our team photo on stage. It’s an honor I’ll never forget.
