ON THE COVER: Dave Lubars
Dave Lubars, the former Fallon ECD who's recently taken the creative reins at BBDO, appears on the cover of the September issue of Creativity, which hits mailrooms this week. Inside, Lubars talks about the future of advertising, and of BBDO, which he says he hopes to turn into "a 21st century version of a killer '60s New York agency." (AdCritic subscribers can read the interview online.) Also in the September issue, we offer up our annual report on the industry's top 25 production companies, including in-depth looks at breakout company Believe Media and new kids Czar.US, Tight and Sandwick Films. Meanwhile, we asked 11 of the country's top ad schools to tell us a little about themselves for our first ever Ad School Review and talked to industry heavyweights (like Bob Greenberg and Rich Silverstein) about what they look for when they're looking for talent.

ALSO IN THE ISSUE: Ernest Lupinacci names an agency; designer Bruce Mau looks into the future of design; director Nicolai Fuglsig talks about his aversion to "car porn"; and The Martin Agency's Kerry Feuerman and Grey's Bart Culberson rate recent ads for Old Navy, Segway, Delta Airlines, and Toyota.

PLUS: A showcase of the best recent automotive advertising; a look at Hispanic market players the Vidal Partnership and editorial company Lucha Libre; a chat with editors Karen Kourtessis and David Cornman about their move to Crew Cuts, and with Australian Geordie Anderson about his move to the U.S.; a peek at the latest images from stock companies Blacklight Films, Corbis and Imagestate; and behind-the-scenes looks at music startup Search Party and French effects powerhouse Buf. And, as always, we round up the latest and greatest advertising and design work from across the country and the world. And it's never been easier for Creativity and AdCritic subscribers to view work they read about in the magazine online.
