Agencies: Blow Up and Start Over | Beyond Madison Avenue

Agencies: Blow Up and Start Over | Beyond Madison Avenue | Eye on concepts | Scoop.it

The title is the phrase spoken by Cindy Gallop, former chairwoman of BBH, when she was speaking in the U.K. at the Guardian's Changing Advertising Summit. Gallop apparently has issues with the way ad agencies are currently built, and believes that their current models are unsustainable.

Her sentiments for the future of advertising are not different from Havas' David Jacobs, Droga5 Sydney's David Nobay, and Goodvertising's Tom Kolster. If these thought leaders are all on the same page, maybe their thoughts might be worth listening to.

The Balance Between Research and Creativity | Beyond Madison Avenue

The Balance Between Research and Creativity | Beyond Madison Avenue | Eye on concepts | Scoop.it

Market research has built a bad rap in AdLand. Research in general is looked at wearingly, and it all comes from how it has been used. Both agencies and client-side marketing folks look at focus groups as annoying and pointless, and ad testing in different markets seems to add more steps than necessary. Some clients look at market research activities as a waste of their advertising spending.

The Freelance Life: Mentorship

The Freelance Life: Mentorship | Eye on concepts | Scoop.it
A true story from the life of one of 42 million freelancers across the country. 

My insight is pretty simple: to freelance, you need tough skin. Like any relationship or job, there are good periods and bad periods. I know no one expects things to be constant in a business, especially when you're the one wearing all the hats. In the solo world, when times get tough, you're really on your own.

Hardformat » The Graphic Design of Reid Miles

Hardformat » The Graphic Design of Reid Miles | Eye on concepts | Scoop.it

Reid Miles was a genius. Look at these designs and enjoy their exuberant sense of play and sheer graphic brilliance. A key element of many of Miles’ designs was label co-founder Francis Wolff’s photography. Oddly enough, Miles wasn’t reportedly a huge fan of hard-bop, the jazz form that Blue Note’s roster excelled in during his tenure. Perhaps, as others have suggested, a degree of distance from the subject benefits the designs.

Burger King is Always Changing | Beneath the Brand | Eye on concepts | Scoop.it

There’s something to be said for brands that are constantly evolving. Change is good; it keeps customers interested and it helps the brand stay relevant within a time frame. Everyone loves change. That is, unless, there’s too much of it. If a brand is constantly updating, constantly changing, customers can’t keep up.
