Art+Copy: Everything I Need To Know About Advertising I Learned From Star Wars
Advertising isn’t really all that hard if you follow the Jedi way. Our local Ad celebrities, John January and Tug McTighe, share valuable lessons that the epic Star Wars saga holds for today’s advertising professionals.
John January is the Excutive Creative Director at Sullivan Higdon & Sink where he works on brands such as Borden Cheese, American Century Investments, Cardinal Health and Pizza Hut. Tug McTighe is Creative Director at Callahan Creek where he works with Toyota, Hills Pet Products, Payless and Sprint. They both host American Copywriter, a simple little podcast about advertising and pop culture. The show is recorded as deadlines allow and has a patient yet passionate fan base.
“John and Tug’s presentation is so funny and poignant to our industry that everyone from newbies to veterans will get something out of it - even if you don’t know Anakin from an Ewok.”
