Summer Intern From Sao Paulo Reflects On Her Valuable Education Outside The Classroom

A couple of weeks ago, I took a subway ride I will never forget. As I stepped out of the unpleasantly sweaty L train and onto the overly crowded Union Square station platform, I found myself surrounded by large green ‘Outshine’ displays. These were the same displays that I have seen for the past couple of weeks projected in our office meeting rooms. I felt immediately overwhelmed, but in a good way.  It was more than feeling proud knowing the exact briefs responsible for creating those ads and that I had sat in those Nestlé meetings. It was even more than the excitement of how close I had been to the campaign. It was the confirmation of my love for the world of advertising. ...READ MORE

Johnson & Johnson’s Latest Initiative Inspires Children to Care

Studies show that Americans overwhelmingly believe that the world has become a less caring place than it used to be. Johnson & Johnson wondered what effect that was having on our children.

Their responses were so beautiful and inspiring, J&J did something completely unexpected with them: they turned the children’s stories into children’s books. ...READ MORE

Monsters meet their match

Who said monsters were scary? Maybe they are just as fun, lovable and human-like as we are… That's what Jordan Young, Art Director at JWT New York, thought when he started his personal tumblr project Matching Monsters—an illustrative blog that captures the monsters counterparts in all of us. With the claim "there's a monster out there for everyone, sometimes you just need help seeing it," Jordan brings to life the monster twins in submitted photos, and the results are great (check out the sleepy line chef, our personal favorite, for starters). Even Laughing Squid and Mashable are fans of the site, and now hundreds of people around the world are too, spawning a spike in traffic since the project's launch on January 1st. We sat down with Jordan to get the scoop on Matching Monsters, the story behind it, and how it's taken off: ...READ MORE
