Patrick Cowan of Word Farm is looking to break into advertising as a copywriter. With concepts like the one above he appears to be well on his way.
A candy named Fling? No this isn’t an April Fool’s joke. It’s a new product from Mars–its first new candy brand since Twix was introduced nearly 20 years ago. According to Ad Age, Mars’ Fling will likely compete head to head with Hershey’s Bliss, an updated, up-market Kiss, aimed squarely at women. Where Fling will […]
Union Bank, with branches in Nebraska and Kansas, went with the old “you can talk to us, we’re your community bank” strategy, but thankfully the execution of that strategy by Swanson Russell is pretty fresh. I especially like the blogger character talking about his blog. That’s funny.
