it was a different time
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.
just watched “the normal heart” and somehow just did not know that this was going to be a 2 hour film about the aids crisis, even though i know now that it’s based on a play of the same name. everyone online was posting about it and was expecting some fun hbo summer series. i started watching it at work! and then people started dying.
i’m sitting here thinking about pride and rage, and more specifically the silent brand of passive activism most of us partake in, when we “like” without reposting or “share” without reading in full. i feel like we’ve become less willing to fight, but i’m not sure if it’s because we’re too obsessed with ourselves or if it’s because we realize just how much we should be fighting for and don’t know where to start.
guess i’ll go pat myself on the back for this post and then forget about caring for a few more weeks.
Designers talking with Adam J. Kurtz about his #weekinscraps, sincerity in form, designing a MySpace layout for Michelle Branch, and why we should think twice before telling someone to “choose a positive thought.”
