"Advertising Eats Itself"



"If Ogilvy were alive, he would surely be cursing today’s creatives as nihilists: young turks hell-bent on annihilating the nobility of a medium that defined consumer civilization for the greater part of the last century. They are nihilistic not only because they seek to destroy the meaning of advertising but also because they believe that good advertising need not be a force of repetition, that it can bring about popularity through quality content alone."

Brand advertising is at the heart of any businesses success. It's all too easy as a business owner to make the mistake of thinking of your brand as a logo and a color scheme along with a slogan.
