let loose in the playground.

You know that feeling you got when you arrived at the playground? What to do first? Ohhhhhh, the slide…no the see saw, or the merry-go-round you’ll quickly regret once you get on it. 

Yeah, the Barber Martin Playground is kinda like that. It’s a place where anything can happen. It’s for creative thinkers of all kinds. Strategy, management, art, copy, film, digital brains to meet up with real businesses and tackle their marketing challenges. For 8 weeks, interns will engage in creating game-changing communication while being guided by some of the industry's leading talent.



Lots of new and exciting things are happening at the agency and we’ve made the tough decision to take a break from hosting the Playground this summer so that we can focus on planning a bigger and more robust program for next year.
