Not everything we did when we were kids made sense, but one thing that did make sense was drinking milk. The Strategic Milk Alliance's new campaign by the integrated team at DDB Canada's Vancouver office is meant to remind us that drinking milk with our favorite foods was great when we were kids and it still tastes just as good now.

BBDO Berlin was tasked with marketing True Fruit's 100% real, 0% artificial smoothies. To do this, the agency decided to prank some actors by shooting them against a green screen doing very odd actions with the expectation to keep it 100% real by not adding in the special effects that the actors were expecting. Nice.
Star Tribune just recently released their annual list of the top 100 places to work in Minnesota and five ad agencies made the cut this year. The results are determined through an anonymous employee survey conducted by WorkplaceDynamics. First off, Periscope took home its fourth win in a row (also won in 2010, 2011, & 2012) in the Midsize category. While Colle+McVoy earned its third win in a row (also won in 2011 & 2012) in the Midsize category along with nabbing the one and only Appreciation Award, which was based on responses to survey questions about feeling genuinely appreciated by the company. Very cool.
Weber Shandwick took home its third win in the Midsize category (also won in 2010 & 2011). mono earned its second win in a row in the Small category. Finally, Magnet 360 achieved their first win in the Small category while also taking home the innovation and achievement award as well. Congrats to all of the very deserving agencies.
