Cuts at StrawberryFrog New York

StrawberryFrog

Today we can confirm that StrawberryFrog has reduced the size of its New York office.

Details remain unfortunately sparse at this time. A statement from parent company APCO Worldwide reads:

“We are always looking for ways to create greater efficiencies and streamline the business at StrawberryFrog in order to deliver the best value to our clients.  After a recent review of the business, we decided to reduce some layers in management.  As a result, some staff will be leaving StrawberryFrog’s New York office.”

No confirmation on the number of staffers who will be leaving, though our tipster says the move affects “many.”

Some of the agency’s most visible work in 2014 to date has been the Jim Beam “Make History” campaign, starring Mila Kunis and created with the other shops in the FutureWorks collective: Sydney’s The Works and Hamburg, Germany’s Jung von Matt.

Updates as we receive them.

Future Lions Winners Bring Social Justice Through Advertising


Today, as part of the 58th Cannes Lions fest in France,  AKQA announced the 2011 winners of its 6th annual Future Lions competition (watch winning films here).

The competition invited students (in any field) over the age of eighteen to submit campaigns that “advertise a product from a global brand in a way that couldn’t have been one five years ago, to an audience of your choosing.” When we think “global brand,” we tend to think big fish like Nike and and McDonald’s. After all, coming up with unprecedented ways to sell expensive sneakers or artery-clogging burgers is exceedingly difficult. What’s most inspiring about the Future Lions competition, is how the top contestants gravitate towards campaigns that aren’t just innovative for their use of the chosen brand, but also have a social conscience and the capacity to actually…er…well, for lack of a better term, change the world.
