The other week, a bunch of people from my office visited with Facebook creatives to talk about creating great advertising content. Organic reach is pretty much dead, so if you’re going to spend a bunch of money to get something in front of people, you want to make sure it’s the right content to the right people, with an emotional benefit and an actual reason to engage. It’s cool and sort of mind-blowing just how targeted you can get, allowing you to make really great work that people might actually want to see.
You know, for an advertisement.

My friend Corbin and I made a publication called Day Job.
Day Job is a collection of works by a group of talented and diverse women about making art and making a living. The result—a 90+ page saddle-stitched beauty—is full of funny and smart and weird and sad work, which we are proud to have helped coax into being.
