Barbeque, I mean, Meat, err Meet the new Kansas City

kansas-city

New work from visitkc.com. Kansas City is a happening place. It’s a shame though. While the video isn’t a very well done representation, Kansas City is a happening place in the ad world. Big agencies like VML and Barkley are doing some stellar work on a national/international level. As well as vibrant and successful community […]

Apple attempted to change the game with iAd and bring a personalized, interactive advertising environment to their devices, but adoption has been slow. It […]

Duck Tron – Duck Brand Duck Tape

I’ll just leave this right here. A spot for Duck Brand Duck Tape from Ryactive. I like it. A pretty gutsy call capitalizing on Tron and Tron Guy, Jay Maynard.
