Valuable Munitions Material

You know what? Awards are important.
They’re good at attracting top talent, getting us some well deserved press and, if smelted down, providing the government with valuable munitions material.
We have San Francisco agency, Venables Bell, to thank for the above wisdom.

About David Burn

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.

    If “top talent” can’t tell which agencies are doing good work without having to wait for award show results, well, maybe they’re not so hot to start with. Just a thought.
