Southwest_Airlines_Woos_Flyers_With_Oldies_But_Goodies

Southwest Airlines and their agency GSD&M like to give people a good reason to fly. For instance, wedding season is upon us. Whether you would like to fly towards this mess on two heels (and Kristen Wiig impersonator), or away from her, is your business. It’s Southwest’s business to move you about the country at […]

“Everybody will start to cheer when you put on your sailing shoes.” -Robert Palmer Sperry Topsider is the favorite summertime footwear of WASPy sailors from Nantucket to Coronado.

Work_-_Doner

Have you ever been tasked with selling mattresses? It’s the stuff of newspaper circulars and badvertising on late night TV. Which makes me like this Serta brand campaign from Doner even more.

Conventional wisdom says agencies are not supposed to have a style, or a consistent “look and feel” across its body of work for a variety of clients.
