What does it take to get a job in advertising these days? Judging by the experience of one intrepid Toronto creative team—Brendan and Jana—it takes a baseball glove, a picture of Charlie Brown, a bottle of chocolate-covered coffee beans and business cards featuring homemade “mug shots.” You should also spend a chilly afternoon in a makeshift office on a sidewalk, and then bake a cookie in the shape of the Hyundai logo. Sounds a bit … tiring, doesn’t it?
