Jacht Ad Lab, the College of Journalism and Mass Communications’ student advertising agency, will host a First Friday showcasing work by Wyn Wiley, a senior advertising and public relations major. The event is 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 4 at the Jacht Ad Lab, 201 N. 8th St.
Wiley’s photo series captures unique portraits of individuals engaged in athletics, dance and fashion. His work has gained local and national recognition.
Wiley operates his own photography studio (http://www.wynwileyphotoblog.com) and shoots for Jacht Ad Lab clients, including the Nebraska State Treasurer’s Nebraska Educational Savings Trust program and the University Health Center.
“Jacht is excited to feature top-notch student work,” said Amy Struthers, Jacht’s founder, supervisor and associate professor of advertising and public relations at UNL. “We love to show off the work of students and faculty from across UNL. It’s special for us to be able to showcase work by an advertising and public relations student who has made such an impact at such an early point in his career.”
Jacht, founded in fall 2010 as Journalism and Mass Communications’ student advertising agency, is passionate about developing strategic use of social media, digital production, mobile media and other emerging technologies to help clients reach business goals.
