Once upon a time, being a “diehard fan” meant buying a band’s album, show ticket, T-shirt, limited edition signed LP — anything your earnings would allow. Today the term can have a very different meaning. You can be a “diehard” by blogging about everything the band puts out, posting links to your Facebook wall, re-Tweeting […]

Nonprofit arts groups tend to spend much of their time scrounging for grants and praying for corporate largesse.

Like conventional wind turbines, MARS uses magnetic induction to produce energy, but the difference comes with increased altitude. Catching wind 800 feet higher than its traditional counterparts, there’s much less resistance and greater wind speed, ultimately allowing the MARS access to a superior […]

Only people matter “They matter more than clients, more than teams, more than fancy buildings, smart suits or posh titles; they matter even more than the ideas. Great ideas are just what happen when the right people are put together and organized (or not) in the right way. The only role of agency management is […]

“Let’s remove the ad spaces and use the real estate better. When we receive an RFP for advertising, our first internal conversation is around what we would do for a brand if we didn’t have advertising space. This leads to us proposing far more innovative and engaging brand fueled experiences that, if they work correctly, not […]
