Our Ad Industry-Baiting Baby is All Grown(s) Up (Updated)

Word on the Spy line is that Lacey Waterman, the gal behind the infamous “Partnerganger” effort, which even merited a Q+A as a result of our post, is deciding on higher learning as her next gig. Waterman has spent the last two years serving as an art director for McCann in this here New York area. We’ve been told by sources that Yale is her destination and she’s seeking an MFA in design. Kudos, if so, and we’ll let you know.

Here’s a note from Waterman herself, who tells us,  “I’ve decided to take a break from advertising and attend Yale for my MFA in Graphic Design to refine my craft and further develop as a creative thinker. Now that I have some work experience under my belt, I’m going back to school with a fresh perspective and I’m looking forward to applying what I’ve learned in advertising to my work at Yale. It’s sad to step away from the life I’ve built for myself in New York, but I’m excited for this new chapter in my life.”
