I am interviewing at various agencies and I just had an interview for an ACD level. I'm ready but I have only had informal management rolls, never an official title. So what is there to know? [more inside]
I'm looking for mission statements from 90's advertising agencies. Specifically, super "edgy" ad agencies that targeted the Gen-X demographic. The more over the top and "extreme" the better. Worst-case scenario, I'd love to know where to start looking for them myself.

TheGlitz&GlamourOfHollywoodFILTER: I’m part of a small start-up that films celebrity interviews and slaps sponsor’s logos on them. Well, in theory, anyway. Up till now, we haven’t had any sponsors.

I've been working six months now at a small ad agency in a medium sized city (70,000). I come from big agency experience. I'm an art director. We have 8 people total, all great people to work with. I like the change from big city to smaller city. There are a lot of plus-es to it. Just recently, we landed a big account. They're looking for a redesign of their brand and ad campaign with internet, non-traditional, advanced website... the works. Whereas most of our job lists for clients number in the few, this one starts with well more than a dozen with several of them as very big projects and with very tight deadlines (in the next six weeks). Skipping to the question, I've been asked by the creative director to step back and stop treading on toes via email. More inside... [more inside]

Should she worry about her rights to the photo? More inside... [more inside]
