So, If I told you that a student campaign I once worked on turned into a client, a major campaign and resulted in winning over the creative rebranding of their entire business and a week long exhibition at the Art Directors Club , would you like to know more? What if I told you that one of their business' provides most of the wood for pencil companies all over the world. And what if I added that the original student ad was for a pencil.

I have a couple more stories like this.

The way I think can be explored at http://www.obercreative.com
