What People are Saying About This

Tim Hendrick

'A Perfect Marriage:' An invigorating and outstanding book that marries the business side of advertising with the creative development side. It defines the creative process for advertising students, that should be a must-read for all whether on the management or creative track. Through contemporary examples, many well known, the substantiation and melding of the left and right brain detail the results of such collaborations. The book really brings it all together, true integration.

Pippa Seichrist

This book gives you a box seat view of the collaborative process needed to create outstanding campaigns including how-tos from some of the industry's superstars. And you'll see it also takes a village to raise an ad.

Edward de Bono

This is a remarkably comprehensive account of how advertising ideas, strategies, and campaigns come about.

Craig Davis

I think this is a much needed book for an Advertising Campaign Capstone class. It provides tangible, insightful, and relevant advice, while numerous examples bring all the material together.

Janas Sinclair

Packed with quotes from leading creatives, The Brains Behind Great Ad Campaigns is an engaging window on the creative process and the current role of research, strategy, and media specialists in big idea generation. The authors provide the real-world insight students need, and for both novices and those familiar with the ad industry, illustrate how agencies are adapting to today’s media environment.

This book is great. Its essential a school textbook for Advertising majors, it has templates, checklist, and great tips. But the good things about it is that even though its like a textbook, i found myself reading it on my leisure time. The way the authors were able to make this book more like a class lecture and less like a normal boring textbook is amazing.It has great example of the do's and dont of past ad campaigns, and the visual that go along with help you intake the information. I would recommend this book along with Margo Berman other book Street-Smart Advertising : How to Win the Battle of the Buzz for any advertising major or anyone who is interested in working in the creative field.
