A few brands that have worked with M.AD...
Want to start a Lab? Here's how it all works.
Speak with Pippa Seichrist, our Director of Innovation, to scope out the project and finalize the brief. We’ll assemble a lab from the hundreds of student strategists, writers, art directors, designers and content creators. Labs are made up of 10 – 70 students.
Briefings last between 1-2 hours. You’ll present the project and the competitive landscape. The teams in the Lab are each made up of several specialties. They ask questions and explore the project from their unique point of view.
Depending on the scope of a project, they last between 2 and 10 weeks.
As the client, you’ll have the opportunity to be as hands-on as you wish. Throughout the process, many clients choose to give staged feedback to the Lab’s multitude of strategic and creative explorations.
A Few Of The Projects We’ve Worked On
Burger King’s Global CMO, Fernando Machado, named 2017 creative marketer of the year, had an idea. He and the creative leadership of DAVID, BK’s ad agency, created and taught a course at Miami Ad School focused on Burger King. The winning student idea, a “donut” burger served with a “donut hole” slider, was featured by The New York Times, Fox News and FastCompany.
UNICEF wanted a global solution. Miami Ad School tapped 70 students in five countries to work on the project. The brief? Spread the word that malnutrition and starvation in Africa is preventable.The winning team was announced at a press conference at UN headquarters.
“We’re thrilled to work with Miami Ad School (M.AD) to bring the latest technologies that Google has to offer to the students of Miami Ad School around the world.
