Infographic Offers Anatomy of an Ad Agency

infographic_anatomy_of_an_ad_agency_preview.jpg

The best thing about this Anatomy of An Ad Agency infographic which takes a look at agency life is the daily timesheet section which is broken down by functional area. For example, account execs spend most of their time " managing expectations" and "looping in" while art directors are busy "tweaking," "bumping that up a bit" and moving things "a bit to the left." Copywriters ideate while reading The Onion and wishing they wrote for The Onion while developers spend their time "larping" (no idea), coding and working on their own, non-billable coding projects.

The second best thing about this infographic are the pick up lines used. AEs want to get real so their favorite is, "I spend all day metaphorically screwing people. let's do the real thing." Art Directors? "I can fill your shite space." Funny. Copywriters are high on themselves to they boldly proclaim, "My brochure copy isn't the only thing that's long." But it's developers who are the most twisted leading off with, "Can I debug your backend?" Ew. Gross.

Thanks for the laugh, Grip Limited.
