Old school advertising

There is a billboard on the corner of Rivonia and Katherine streets for a strip club touting it as a great business lunch venue. Isn't it time we acknowledged that strip clubs aren't places to conduct business - but are rather entertainment venues? 6 Dec 2006

Presenting creative ideas during pitches

A Cape-based medium sized FMCG company recently asked a few agencies to pitch. Problem is, they insisted on seeing creative work/ideas during the pitch. One agency would get the account but would have all these ideas to work with.

  • Is there not a better way to do pitches?
  • What is the norm? 24 Nov 2006

    Ripped off by traffic department

    Fake ads. Worth the reward?

    Should one idiot (let's call him the client) be able to stop a great idea? 26 Oct 2006

    Are we missing a trick?

    Once upon a time a great ad that won awards influenced sales and changed marketing. Today ads that 'creatives' switch off influence sales, and win marketing/branding awards. Are we as aspiring creatives missing the boat that Mo the Meerkat sailed in on? 15 Aug 2006

    Tap ads damaging the brand?

    The new Isca tap ad campaign currently on TV shows taps "so good you won't want to do certain things in front of them" - or some other lame line. Am I alone in thinking that they are damaging the image of the brand? 16 May 2006

    Same character over and over in ads - dangerous?

    I sometimes find that in such ads, one ends up paying attention to the character and not what is being advertised. 28 Feb 2006
