marketing is dead

Advertising. by Adam Cooper


"ORIGINAL IMAGE designed by Karina Nurdinova and inspired by a quote from Banksy, which was inspired by Sean Tejaratchi's 1999 essay, "Death, Phones, Scissors." There's a bit of controversy about this quote, read about what Tejaratchi says about it here." -


Confession: My name is Adam and I'm in advertising. I came in to advertising through a boutique branding agency in Trinidad merging with a large, global advertising agency. And that experience has made me understand that branding can be perceived as the polar opposite to advertising, where branding is intended to be a reflection (or a projection) of identity versus advertising being a deliberate demand of someone's attention and money.
