Ned,

 

Last fall, the opportunity arose for me to do embed reporting with U.S. and Allied troops literally around the world, for Blackfive online military magazine.  While there are advertising/sponsorship opportunities for that, I want to let you know about a Kickstarter project I am doing in regards the Normandy D-Day ceremonies this year.  While next year is the “big number” anniversary, the D-Day survivors are fast leaving us.  I want to go over and cover this year in hopes of documenting those who can still make it over.  I want to capture pictures of them, and maybe some of those memories they care to share, and document that while it is still possible. The project is at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1001302942/normandy-2013.  Anyone interested in the advertising/sponsorship opportunities can contact me at blake@blakepowers.net.

 

Thanks.

4.)  Creative – Associate Creative Director, Imre, Sparks, MD

 

It never fails. You wake up at 3 am, and an idea overcomes you. You have to write it down. You have to think about how it will work, will be communicated. Then, see how the idea flows into words, a line, or a story until finally, a fully integrated concept.

 

 Does this describe you? Then we need to talk. IMRE is seeking an ACD who is a master copywriter, storyteller, concept-generator and presenter. This Jedi must be completely comfortable in the digital space, including web, social, and multimedia while possessing the ability to create an award-winning ad or TV campaign. All of this combined with a collaborative attitude and an integrated mindset.

 What you’ll do:

  • Concept, in teams and      alone
  • Write copy in long and      short form, digital and print
  • Be a leader and mentor to      the creative team
  • Present your ideas both      internally and to clients
  • Create an internal bridge      between social and emerging media
  • Report to the VP/Creative      Director

What you’ll need:

  • An award winning      portfolio demonstrating work in integrated campaigns
  • 8+ years experience, with      at least 4 of those at an agency
  • Copy background
  • An ability to multi-task      in a face-paced environment
