Amanda and Darren hit the Ad world (7)

It is March! When did that happen exactly? The ad world is moving at hyper speed it seems, so lets not waste time and dive right in to AD’s list for week seven.

10 pixels for seventh week:
1st: There are a lot of acronyms in advertising lingo.
2nd: Knowledge comes from experience.
3rd: Perception is reality.
4th: We are all salesmen and women and we are constantly selling people on ourselves.
5th: Great ideas are nothing without great execution.
6th: Comfortable is not in the advertising vocabulary.
7th: In order for your life to change, you must change.
8th: Expect someone to freak-out on the subway every time it is delayed.  I mean it happens at least 4 times a week so I don’t know why it is such a surprise.
9th: New briefs turn over new leafs.
10th: Above all else keep it simple.

Highlight of the week: Being given the opportunity to work on a really homegrown client: Ontario Tourism. It is hard not to feel a little patriotic when the campaign you are working on is to promote where you live in a creative way. AD got their brains in gear to do this campaign some justice.
