New York – La trasformazione dei brand in macroentità culturali ed economiche portatrici di significati ha ispirato l’85°edizione dell’Art Directors Club Annual Awards, che ha aperto ufficialmente le iscrizioni. La campagna, che riporta l’headline “Pimp My Brand” (espressione derivata dall’hip-hop che significa “Rendi super-cool il mio brand”), è stata creata da Ernest Lupinacci, partner dell’agenzia newyorkese Anomaly. L’ADC ha anche annunciato i presidenti della giurie dell’85°Annual Award per le categorie “interactive,” “advertising” e “design.” Si tratta di Matt Freeman di Tribal DDB per quanto riguarda la sezione Interactive, Ty Montague di JWT per la sezione Advertising e Brian Collins di O&M’s Brand Integration Group per la sezione Design. Tutti e tre insieme presidieranno la categoria Hybrid, la categoria introdotta l’anno scorso per premiare le soluzioni creative che si estendono oltre i mezzi tradizionali.
