Alumni Conversations: Greg Clow ’81, Editor at Top-Ten-Apps.com

 

Position: Editor at Top-Ten-Apps.com,  an iPhone app discovery email newsletter

Short description of what you do: I work on web development, app discovery and review, social network integration, analytics, email marketing, creative direction, art direction, and copywriting.

Degree at Dartmouth: Visual studies

1. Did you pursue any further education or training?

I took night classes from a San Francisco-based advertising school. All other training was done on the job.

2. Describe the path from your time at Dartmouth to your current activity.

I went from working in advertising in New York to advertising in Boston, and then I moved on to San Francisco. Eventually I moved from advertising to online marketing.

3. What activities/groups/events did you participate in while on campus?

I was a member of the squash team and Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity. I also skiied, worked on the snow sculpture design for Winter Carnival in 1980, designed Dartmouth Film Society posters, participated in the New England Art Show, and designed the Winter Carnival poster for four years. 

4. How do you translate your Dartmouth education and/or major to your career?

All my coworkers went to art school and had a four to six-year head start on me…. That was a sobering realization. However, in the field of creative advertising, the ability to call on my liberal arts background, and to reference pieces of societal and historical information that my colleagues did not have, helped a great deal. I also found it far easier to present ideas to business leaders because I was relating to them on a level playing field.

5. Do you have any advice for current students who are interested in the arts, both academically and personally? 

As I see it, there are three directions to take after Dartmouth as an artist:

1) You have the means, or a benefactor, with which to follow your creativity unencumbered by the necessity of income,

2) You choose a second career, and creating visual art becomes a second career or hobby, or

3) You go into marketing or advertising.

I chose the third path. As a piece of advice to artists in today’s digital world: Today it is so easy for non-artists to create beautiful things, that the fruits of our labor have become commodities. Photographers know this best. While the few truly great in the industry welcome the competition and claim that it will just “up the game,” for those just entering the field, the competition to just get a start is daunting. Why pay a professional photographer when I can just use my iPhone? Why hire an artist to create the art for a billboard when I can use Photoshop and stock photography at a fraction of the cost?

The smart way forward for today’s graduate is to find a way to use digital capabilities to expand the touch of your creativity — printmakers learned this. Make an engraving once, make a hundred prints, number them and sell them. One piece of art and a hundred copies = greater income and greater exposure. Today’s graduate has to look to multipliers in order to make an impact.

Interested in Documentary Film? Available July 12, 2012 near Concord, NH? Read on….

Below is an email received by the Career Services Office at Dartmouth College; If you’re free on July 12, 2012 & close to Concord, NH, sounds like a great way to get some experience…not to mention your name in the credits.

“We are offering radio-TV-film and communications students the opportunity to work on a documentary film that is being produced this summer in every state capital and several other locations in some states.  If students would like to work on the film crew, we would be delighted to have them.  They will not be paid, but they will receive experience and will be listed in the closing credits.

This film project is unique in many ways.  The movie is being filmed in all 50 states and DC in a 143-day road trip covering 16,508 miles (surely a first).  Over 750 people will be filmed, and the project will produce one documentary film, and over 750 videos, including testimony for every state legislature and the U.S. House and Senate.

If you have students who would like to participate, please have them email their resume to Crew@WhistleblowerProductions.com, and indicate which day(s) they will be available.

…. We will film in Concord [NH] on July 12, 2012.  The students will need to arrive by 8 am and work until 6 pm.

We hope some of your students will join us.”

Sincerely,

William M. Windsor

Producer/Director
