In the slideshow above, Uwe Gutschow and Don Longfellow from Saatchi & Saatchi LA, have expanded upon Paul Isakson’s earlier work. Neil Perkin also developed a derivative work from Isakson’s original.
The Saatchi piece above neatly describes my own thoughts about content’s role in advertising. From two of their slides: We stop pitching people with messages. We start providing useful content. I’m sure many of us have these thoughts in our decks. Thankfully, there seems to be a market for them.
Co-founder and editor of AdPulp. I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. I worked for seven agencies in five states before launching my own practice in 2009. Today, I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
