Crispin Porter + Bogusky creatives illustrate how hard they work while addressing their critics on the cover of the December issue of Creativity shot by photographer Pete Barrett. We name the shop Agency of the Year for the second year in a row in our look at the work of 2005. AdCritic subscribers can read the article online, in which chairman Chuck Porter and ECD Alex Bogusky deconstruct the agency's culture and examine the work of 2005. Also online, the brutal competition for Production Company of the Year, in which MJZ came out on top. Executive producer David Zander (a.k.a. the Z in MJZ) sits down for a Q&A. Be sure to click through the Creativity Spot Gallerywhile thumbing through the issue to see our top spots, interactive work and campaigns of the year.
Elsewhere in our jam-packed year-end wrap-up, Target gets the nod for Design Mover of the Year, AKQA is our first ever interactive agency of the year and MJZ insiders answer the question, "What does David Zander remind you most of?" In the Buzz, Ari Merkin and Anne Bologna play at Toy, Gwyneth Paltrow directs for Glamour and Group101Spots help aspiring directors. Plus, creative-turned-director Jeff Labbe poses with John Travolta, young interactive creatives discuss shaping the digital marketing landscape, and the best work of the month.
