Spoiler alert – The Pitch; Season 1, Episode 6 – JDRF: Muse & Bozell will be discussed below, and in this show as if you have already seen it – just a warning.
AMC has been running a reality show for the past few weeks showcasing Ad Agencies giving pitches to clients – getting the brief, what goes into them – and then selling their idea. It’s called The Pitch. I know it sounds like we’re ad people over here at 36 Point to many – but we’re designers, and there are differences, even if a lot of what we do overlaps. Regardless, I find it’s been an entertaining show, and have been watching since it premiered. Ben has only seen the latest show, but that’s ok, as we’re only speaking about last Sunday’s episode anyway.
The reason we waited until now to discuss this show? One of the agencies featured also happens to be in Omaha, so we decided to speak directly with a couple of the people involved – Jerry Stoner and Kim Mickelsen from Bozell. In this episode, they went against Muse Communications for the JDRF account.
Hope you enjoy a little of the behind the scenes action on AMC’s reality show.
Chris Kelly has been on the show a few times, but his first appearance at the end of Season 2 was one of the most popular shows we have ever done. Probably because we spoke about interviewing for graphic design jobs. Ends up he backed that up with a full time job over at Hayneedle. And he brought along past guest, and his fellow co-worker Aaron Stubbe to speak about working in-house.
They also speak of another site they work on called The Foundary. Sign up now, buy gold gator skulls, decorate your office like a champion!
And then listen as we discuss the in-house design life.
Oh yeah, we also speak about the HOW Design Live conference. Is it really in 30 days? We’ll be reporting daily from Boston, so if you see us with microphones, stop by and chime in. If you have not registered for the 2012 event yet, we have a promo code for our listeners to save $100 – 36POINT.
