dalls_addys_baby_ideas_redhead.png

This is, perhaps, the lamest ADDY Award call for entry work we have ever seen. Created by The Richards Group in conjunction with the AAF Dallas, the work centers on the notion a creative person's idea are their babies. Though in this piece of work, it's not a notion, it's quite literal.

Nothing like hammering home the obvious. OK, yea, we get that that's the joke and, besides, we're a sucker for cute redheads so we're going to let this one slide.

As an entity that's often involved in party planning and listing at various advertising and marketing events, we're well aware of what it takes to host and sponsor a great event.

Last week, PivotCon was held in New York City. The conference, curated by Brian Solis, focused on the transformation of businesses from using social media as a marketing tool to becoming a full fledged social business.

Representative from 3M, Bloomberg, Philips, GE, Citibank, DollarShaveClub, VirginMobile, Barclay, Coke and others shared how social has pervaded many corners of their company and the changes it has brought about.
