Do People Really Hate Advertising?

Posted by Bill Barnett

By Bill Barnett, Senior Copywriter

All my friends are liars—my family too. They’re all liars. Here. I’ll explain.

Longtime friends and family have stopped asking—thank heavens—but when I meet someone new, let’s say at a party or something, and they learn that I’m an advertising copywriter, they all eventually ask the same thing: “Have you made any commercials I may have seen?” Or even worse, they’ll say something like, “Did you do the one where the greasy lawyer knocks stuff down with a big cartoon hammer?”

No, I most certainly did not, I’ll say.

That Is Not My Job

Posted by Jessica Vance

Jessica Vance, Account Director

Listening to people talk in another language is often interesting, sometimes intriguing but mostly incredibly frustrating. Sitting in meetings, this often becomes evident to me. I think I know what is meant, but at the same time, I can never be sure. I hesitate to ask because after all, this language is so elementary to you. “Of course that is what that word means,” you might say.

“People don’t read ad blogs. They read what interests them, and sometimes that’s a blog about advertising.” (with apologies to Howard Gossage)

Advertising needs heroes. Those who toil in the business of creativity understand the need for continuous inspiration. And sometimes that inspiration comes from the wisdom of creative practitioners.
