The early years of a creative’s career can often be grueling ones, with long hours, intense deadlines and an uphill road when it comes to earning a role on major client work.
So it’s especially impressive when emerging talents don’t just endure, but also thrive as their careers develop.
As part of Adweek’s Creative 100, an annual celebration of talented professionals around the world, the following honorees were selected by our editors as talents to watch:
Rebecca Friedman and Katie D’Agostine
Art director and copywriter, Wieden+Kennedy New York
The path to Wieden+Kennedy: “I started out as a trusts and estates/family lawyer in Boston and when given the legal opportunity of a lifetime, my body wouldn’t let me,” D’Agostine said.
