A few signs showing that the advertising agency of the future won’t probably be an advertising agency

Prey for the Content Lord
Let’s all prey for the Content Lord

For those considering advertising as a coffin business, do not forget that even funeral homes can innovate.

Here are a couple of signs (coming from the deck below, slide 41) shaping the future of our jobs:

  • OMD launching Final Front, aka. an entertainment fair where advertisers met content producer to collaborate.
  • VICE acquiring Carrot Creative: a company specialized at distributing content within new medias
  • Droga5 partnering with WME (one of the biggest talent house on Earth) to create new kind of entertainment and contents
  • Poptent producing a Budweiser spot during the World series (a crowdsourced platform for videasts)
  • Complex Media (an advertising network dedicated to 20 something dudes) powering pepsi.com through a platform supporting emerging artists.

The future’s bright yeah, but who knows who’s gonna get the biggest slice of pie?
