#Superbowl standouts

on February 2, 2015 by Bridget Comments

Here are my picks for #SB49.

Weight Watchers surprised with a breaking bad approach to breaking unhealthy eating addictions.  Great read about the approach on Adage.  Nice tagline “Help with the hard part”.  You can also see the other ads done by Wieden+Kennedy under this new brand platform on La Reclame.

on January 27, 2015 by Ana Comments

The future of in-flight entertainment is bleak without SkyMall

on January 24, 2015 by Ana Comments
