Standard Time Los Angeles, not your standard small agency.

You might not have heard of Standard Time, the L.A. based small agency headed up by Michael Sharp who does his name justice, but that would only be because they're too busy working to toot their own horn.

Official AdLand Advertising Tutorial: Manifesto ads

Greetings students, welcome to the the ongoing Official AdLand Advertising Tutorial. Today we will teach you about the swiss army knife that can stab the talking head testimonial ad in the back, the Manifesto ad. You can use the Manifesto ad for anything. No, we mean anything. Add a stencil grunge font and it's for sneakers. Add poetry-slam reading and it's for skinny jeans. Add neon-haired celebrities and it's for hipster sports gear. Add Denzel Washington and it's A Very Serious PSA™.

The brief that you have waited for all your life finally lands on your desk

The creative Director is running in circles all over the place yelling "Bring me a big idea! Bring me a big idea!" The smug VP gives you the friendliest of smiles while chanting the usual meaningless war slogans: "bring me a campaign that no one has seen before. Bring me THE new idea. Bring me an idea that is like nothing that's ever been done. Not even close! Don't worry, I have the client eating out of my hand, just get it and I'll make it happen". And suddenly, you start believing. The fumes of battle are blinding you, the old addictive aroma of gun powder takes hold of your senses and you start sweating. You are telling yourself that this time its for real. This time they actually mean it. It is not you against the client, it's you against you.

A Mistress worth sharing - the nimble passionate creative shop in Venice beach will show you a good time

Meeting with Mistress in their space, at the very epicenter of Venice beach from where they can see surfers, skaters and even bank robberies, I am treated to a tour of the office built with reclaimed wood and passionate ideas. Their large windows will let the sunlight in, as well as serve as dancing space for their parties where suddenly the entire neighborhood thinks there's a new nightclub in town. Mistress tend to do everything with the essence of their brand name in mind, the agency party date they own is of course Feb 14, Valentines day, and the time it begins is right after the quiet fancy dinner you've had with your spouse.
