FROM CREATIVITY: CP+B Named Agency of the Year

Published on .

ON THE COVER: CP+B's Andrew Keller and Alex Bogusky
Executive creative director Alex Bogusky and CD Andrew Keller appear on the cover of the December issue of Creativity, which hits newstands this week. Why? Well, it only seemed right since Crispin Porter + Bogusky is, for the second time in three years, Creativity's Agency of the Year. Also in the big year-end issue, we reveal our picks for the other standouts of 2004. Campaign of the Year honors go to CP+B's "Subservient Chicken" campaign for Burger King; Fallon/N.Y.'s Survivor-based Starbucks commercial "Glen" earns our nod for Spot of the Year; and our Production Company of the Year award goes to Smuggler. (AdCritic subscribers can read the rationale behind these choices -- and find out about our other top contenders -- here, here, here and here.)

ALSO IN THE ISSUE: Seven Worldwide's Ken Anderson meditates on the recent history of male ad icons; Paul Silburn hops the pond; Arnold CCO Ron Lawner and Berlin Cameron CD Jason Peterson rate new ads for Adidas, Evian, Cingular and Mercury; the Brooklyn Brothers bust out; Aussie collective The Glue Society comes to America; and photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders dresses up the porn industry. PLUS: We look behind-the-scenes at Honda's ode to hate and Hummer's visual kaleidoscope; digital artists from Hornet, Brand New School, rhinofx, Charlex, Zoic and Digital Domain talk about the state of their art; the principals behind Oink Ink and Soundscapes talk radio; and we put together a portfolio for Pentagram, Creativity's Design Company of the Year.

And, as always, we round up the latest and greatest advertising and design work from across the country and the world. Also, it's never been easier for Creativity and AdCritic subscribers to view work they read about in the magazine online.
