Daniel Zender featured in Communication Arts!

Daniel Zender  (Design Foundations and Illustration 2)
Conforming to his own artistic vision, this Brooklyn-based illustrator is mastering uncanny beauty.

Last October, Daniel Zender did something you have probably never done: he went to Easter Island on a whim. In truth, the word whim doesn’t really capture the passionate curiosity that led to Zender’s adventure. The illustrator, 31, has an affinity for mysterious phenomena and traditional art that goes back to his childhood. “I was an X-Files kid,” he recalls. “I was into aliens and Area 51 and just weird stuff.” From early on, he was fascinated by Easter Island, “a place that took a long time to understand and still is not fully understood.” His interest had been dormant until he recently happened on a book about the Chilean island at a stoop sale near his Brooklyn home, and started wondering how he could actually get there.

Ogilvy Immersion Day

Ogilvy Immersion Day

Tuesday, October 2nd, RSVP required

Learn what it’s like to work at Ogilvy.

Immersion Day is a half-day event designed to give college students an insider’s look into life at an experience design agency. Students have the opportunity to connect with Ogilvy professionals and network with their peers.

Ogilvy hosts Immersion Day at our Denver and New York office locations every six months, coinciding with spring and fall college graduations. Our team spends half a day with these students, beginning with a tour of our space that leads into a panel discussion. Select Ogilvy employees representing research, design, writing, and creative technology share their personal and professional experiences to provide guidance and answer any questions from these students who are about to begin careers of their own. The remainder of the time is filled with first-hand, informative activities, including shadow hours, portfolio and resume reviews, Workshop 101s, and helpful job interview tips and tricks.

The concept of Immersion Day was born from a plight that designers at Ogilvy had experienced firsthand: it’s difficult to find the job you want without knowing anyone in the industry. Additionally, over the past two years, Ogilvy received frequent requests from Denver design students for studio tours and job shadowing opportunities. There had not been a formal structure or cadence for hosting these students, so we decided to organize and operationalize a process where students could visit Ogilvy, get immersed in our culture and the work we do, check out our space, and receive advice on how to start in the industry.
