The Online Intern

This is how you get the ad world's attention. This young Manchester based lass has a set up her own site where she will respond to 5 creative briefs set by whichever agencies want to get involved. She practically interns for a week with that agency, but all from the comfort of her own home.

This is a great idea, setting an example for all those Northerners who want a foot in the door with an agency down south but can't afford to travel or move to live down there. She gets to keep the low rent of the North, but work with the best London based agencies there are.

Poke London, digital trailblazers that they are, are the first agency to have gotten on board. I foresee big things - lets just hope, spotlight on, that she has some more good ideas in response to the briefs.
