Was Marie Antoinette a Guest of the Cannes Ad Festival?

Hilton Barbour

I’ve often wondered if residents of Cannes exhibit the characteristics of migratory birds or Vietnam veterans with PTSD. With the week-long blow-out that is the annual advertising festival, do they rush as far from the city as possible to escape the mayhem or dig out their ear-plugs, abandon all hope of [...]

VCU Brandcenter’s Recruiter Sessions 2010

A number of weeks ago, our good friends at the VCU Brandcenter in Richmond, VA invited us down to their annual Recruiter Session — a few days when the school’s graduating class gets to show off their skills to different CDs and recruiters. It seemed like an interesting enough event, especially since I can remember a time when “junior” and “recruiter” weren’t often used in the same sentence. Independent headhunters didn’t bother with fresh outta school creatives and the miniscule commissions their salaries would earn them, and ad agency recruiters, well, with dozen of physical books and hundreds of emails being delivered each week, they never really had to go out looking for junior talent.

David&Goliath: Ten years of giant killing

ihaveanidea gets a lot of love from advertising agencies all over the world. One agency that has been particularly good to us over the past few years is David&Goliath out in Los Angeles. Recently D&G hit a milestone that all plucky young upstarts want to hit, the big 1-0. According to tradition, a tenth anniversary [...]

The Advertising & Design Club of Canada “Directions 2009″

2009 is the year of many milestones, and for the Advertising & Design Club of Canada it marks its diamond 60th anniversary. It’s time to take a look at how far the ADCC has come and marvel at the speed at which the entire advertising and design industry is moving, in Canada and across the globe.

Crea 2009

The Crea Awards, the yearly local Quebec award show organised by Infopresse, are always guaranteed to be a lot of fun. This year, none other than Erik Vervroegen was acting as the jury’s co-president with Sid Lee’s Creative Chief Philippe Meunier. We managed to get a hold of them both when Erik was in Montreal [...]

IHAVEANIDEA/D&AD Awards 2008 North American Tour

‘Three Weeks, Seven Cities, And The Best Creative Work Of The Land.’
While we didn’t paraphrase our longtime Portfolio Night tagline in promoting the recent D&AD screenings, perhaps we could have. After all, D&AD is well known for awarding only the best of the best in advertising and design, and there was no way we could [...]

ihaveanidea/D&AD Awards Screening 2008: Montreal

2008 has been a pretty busy year for us at ihaveanidea in regards to our relationship with our friends at D&AD. We traveled to London this past April, to give everyone an in-depth look at the intense judging process for the D&AD 2008 Awards. We returned to the UK a month later to witness the [...]


Advertising Week V: A Look Back thumbnail

Advertising Week V: A Look Back

New York City: if the world of advertising had a capital city, the Big Apple would definitely claim that honor, with Madison Avenue standing in for Pennsylvania Avenue, Downing Street or Sussex Drive (I’ll let the multinationals fight over who gets to sit in the White House in that analogy.) But when it comes to [...]
