As the advertising industry converges on New York City for Advertising Week, the eyes of the media will once again be on the CEOs, publishers and creative legends who draw the crowds and drive the conversations.
This is not about them.
To commemorate the completion of our freshman year in America, Campaign US is inviting four young ad industry workers to attend Advertising Week for the first time. In a series of documentary videos, we’ll experience the conference through their eyes, learning what inspires them, what leaves them empty and what they would do differently.
Here we meet Mariam Aldhahi, a design editor at Huge. Born in Baghdad and raised in Florida, Aldahi received her MFA in design criticism from the School of Visual Arts and got her job at Huge three days after graduating. Like all writers, she knows the value of a good story.
