News Bites – Recent Digital Media Grad Joins Growing KCAD Talent Pool at VML
There’s another acronym that’s quickly becoming an important part of the brand of full-service advertising agency VML: KCAD.
With the recent addition of 2014 Digital Media graduate Pierre Babbit to its roster, the agency’s Kalamazoo branch now employs a total of 15 alumni from the program. Babbit first got his foot in the door at VML – literally and figuratively – this past spring, when a busload of Digital Media students toured the branch and got a taste of what it's like working for one of the largest digital agencies in the United States.

Another alum who took that trip – 2014 graduate Jake McVey – was hired by VML this past May. The agency was one of the first in the industry to transition from print to interactive and digital media, and McVey and Babbit are now both working as Digital Media Designers.
