Temperatures are coming down and nights are getting longer, so now's the time to break out your best sweater and come get comfy with your best friends in the advertising business — AdFed! Our Fall Social is right around the corner and is the best opportunity to get to know your fellow advertising professionals.
If you're not the comfy, sweater weather type, come gather a team and play AdFeud! We asked 100 people questions about advertising, local and global, and you'll get to guess what they think; a bit of a feud for glory and a travelling trophy, which will look great on your mantle just in time for Christmas.
We'll have food, drink, fun, and more! Join us!
Team of 5 — $50

A strange bunch, we creatives are. Copywriters and art directors must be able to speak in the hard communication of strategy while also being skilled in the soft communication of suggesting the sell. LET your creatives do what they do well or you will strangle them and end up strangling your advertising efforts. Creativity in all forms informs copywriters and art directors. It is not about wasting time and money, but about investing in the mental well-being of the magic that makes the sell.
Join us as we take some direction from Arkansas State University graphic design professor and creative professional Nikki Arnell about how to keep your fellow creatives at the top of their game to ensure innovation and top performance.
