When I was a kid I wanted to save dolphins, the rainforest, women’s rights and professional baseball (I had tremendous foresight). Then I grew up and landed in Advertising. Then I got sad at my desk, thinking, maybe I should have been a cop, a doctor, a civil liberties lawyer because all I do all day is push pixels and rearrange words to sound more “saleable.” Well guess what. WORDS ARE FUCKING POWERFUL. So are Pixels. And if your eyes are squinting from the big f-bombs – boom. Point made. Honestly, I believe in Advertising, Design, Marketing, Websites, Twitter, et al. If you don’t, at least arm yourself with some good arguments by watching Art & Copy.
Yes, this is kinda old news, but hey – I just had an epiphany today when my friend linked me to his mother’s foundation for HIV/AIDS MPH Educational fund. All I could think was, this amazing woman doing amazing work in a shit town that still has a lot to learn about HIV/AIDS and how can I help? Well they don’t need a trial lawyer but they might need a logo.
List of screenings here.
So how are you gonna save the world?
