    Oh, shoot. Look whose mug has been popping up around town – a little nod to the Obama postings during the DNC, we think. A man with a chest like that gets our vote. He should also have yours.

  • Karsh\Hagan's Wicked Agency Warfare

    / Comments (32)

    Check out this sly campaign developed by Karsh\Hagan to try and grab up the Pearl Izumi account when, we suppose, CP+B let go of the Boulder-based shoe brand they’d been working on in exchange for Nike. (See Crispin’s work here as a reminder.) Apparently, the posters were mailed to the client’s offices and the site backed up the messaging.

    We love when shops do this kind of thing and we’d love to see more of it out there. It shows hunger, confidence and cut-throat competitiveness. The effort won Bronze at the ADCD show in the Guerrilla / Non-traditional Media / Campaign category. How’s it hit you?

  • Help Steve Escape Detroit

    / Comments (12)

    Denver Egotist,

    I’m writing to you in hopes of a miracle. I am a mid-level copywriter from the Midwest – Detroit to be exact. But for some time now I’ve longed to move west to Denver. Where life is greener. Cleaner. And just plain more fun.

    The problem lies in that being a Detroiter, most agencies aren’t too keen on taking a chance on an out-of-towner. I’ve had a few nibbles here and there but it’s always the same old issue of not being local. I want to be local. I yearn to be a Denverite, but I don’t make Madison Avenue cash. So unfortunately, I can’t up and relocate without employment in hopes of landing a new job while moving into a 225 square foot studio in LoDo.

    After perusing your inspiring content and learning of the movement to unify and elevate Denver’s advertising community, I was driven to action. I am a humble yet hungry young writer who desperately wants to leave the gloomy doldrums of the auto industry behind. I want to grow. And create. And contribute to the industry I love so much. With your help, maybe someone in the Denver area will give me the shot I’ve been working for.

    Please feel free to check out my work at stevemolnar.com and see if it is up to snuff. Thank you for your time and I eagerly await your response.

    Cheers,
    Steve M.

    Help him out if you can, people. He’s stuck in Detroit for God’s sake.
