First the good news:
You still have a chance to win the MIQ #1, since nobody gave any answers, even though lots of folks read the questions. The other good news I guess is that means there's a greater need for my book than I thought.
The bad news is now I have to ask a few more Mad Invisible Questions. Here goes:
1. What is the name of the current project whose mission is to bring more "colored folks" into advertising. I mean the one named after a fictional AfAm adman?
2. What was the AfAm owned New York ad agency named after an animal and when did it open?
3. Who was the adman responsible for the Coke commercial that put Burrell Advertising on the television map in the mid 70s?
OK kids, now go figure.
What it is.
1. This is a blog, not a website because I don't have the skills or the time to do a full-blown website. The niceties of design that I used to obsess over when I was an ad agency art director go out the window.
2. This is not a blog about the TV show "Mad Men". I really don't know or care much about the fictional exploits of fake "white" ad folks. This is a blog for and about real "black" ad folks.
3. My purpose here is to get acquainted with the current state of the mad world (especially as it relates to...er...uh, "melanated" mad men and women), make contact with and gather info on current AfAm ad folks for my new book and to begin to build an audience for it.
