• Con-cepting - Advertising Ideas from Convicts

    / Comments (0)

    Great ideas can come from anywhere and three creatives plus one federal prison set out to prove it in their "Con-cepting" experiment. The contributors Ben, Marcus, Pat, and Luis are using the prison pen pal system to partner with convicts at the the Federal Bureau of Prisons to make ads. The prisoners serve as either writer or art director, while the ad creatives fill out the other role. They hope it proves two things: that creativity can be a career, and that good ideas can come from anywhere. Check it out.

  • Intern Program for @2eCreative Now Accepting Applications

    / Comments (0)

    A little side-note to this internship: we've previously ran the flag of not running internships that don't meet the AIGA (not to mention state/federal) requirements for temporary work relationships - mostly in terms of $$$. We've definitely lived up to that but there have been situations, like this one, that pay only in experience while developing campaigns for great non-profit/pro bono clients that the agency doesn't make money off of either.

    As long as they meet the necessary requirements, we have no problem in promoting the position. It's when you start profiting off of free work that ethical issues arise.

    Ross Toohey states:
    "Our summer internship program picks a non-profit organization to rebrand, then our mentors help package the entire experience into a portfolio case story, and assist with interview coaching and scheduling."

    "We are strongly opposed to the idea of unpaid interns contributing to billable work."

  • Entrepreneurial STL - @ExploreSTL Video Highlights @PixelPress @Lockerdome & Other Startups

    Here's a piece from the Civic Pride Foundation, Regional Chamber and others that has a bit more authenticity and positive vibe in regards to all the press (and hype) claiming STL as the next big technology hub. Admittedly, if we were out-of-state entrepreneurs looking for somewhere off the coasts to provide a home for our bootstrapped company, then this video would make one of the more compelling arguments that St. Louis is the place to do that.
