APG Guest Editors This Month - Us!

Hello there fine reader. Something strange has happened. For over ten years (9 on this blog) we've been calling bullshit on the ad industry and it's weird and counterproductive practices from the periphery of the business.

But this month, the rather lovely people at the APG have invited us to be guest editors of their website, specifically to help unpick the way that planning and creative work together (or don’t) in ad agencies. And suggest a better way of working.

We are on the inside, people.

The APG describe themselves as a membership organisation that promotes smarter thinking. That sounds good to us. More of that is needed.

Anyway, head on over the to the site here http://www.apg.org.uk/guesteditor-andy-and-vic to read the introduction. Check back over the next four weeks as we'll be posting up articles that are intended to challenge the current way agencies work with clients and develop ideas.
