Can You Make Pumpernickel Appealing? This Student Ad Campaign Does.

Students Zach Russell (copywriter) and Kristen Sugihara (art director) teamed up to create this tasty ad work for pumpernickel. This "Eat Like a Saint" campaign goes from print to outdoor to grocery store installation. Created for a Copywriting Media Course, the goal was to create something different, something memorable.

Profile: Copywriting instructor Ken Opalsky

We're thrilled to offer a copywriting course with Ken Opalsky who comes from NYC. Ken works on lots of big name accounts that we know and love and he will share his expertise with our students in the August copywriting class. Here's some info about him - 

Ken was born on the Lower East Side of Manhattan (before the LES was cool) and raised between strip malls in Jersey, Ken started his copywriting career and eventually spent 20+ years at Saatchi & Saatchi NY. While there he named and launched Yoplait Go-Gurt, created campaigns for the likes of Cheerios, Tide, Gushers Fruit Snacks and Progresso Soup, worked on Northwest & Delta Airlines before they were the same airline and won awards for his work on Cozumel and Partnership for a Drug Free America. After yet another brutal NY winter, he packed up the family and now lives and freelances in sunny San Diego.
