  • Working with my creative partner Rickie Marsden, during our placement at TBWA I have learnt so many things. From picking up on what a client is looking for in a solution to learning more about the roles each person within the agency plays, I have gained skills that I couldn't have got anywhere but an agency environment. We were also asked to stay on for an extra week so were there for three weeks in total.
