Ad People. Many think of us as heartless souls. We have fame of being manipulative, greedy, and liers. They say we push humans backwards.
I understand why people think that about us. Yet, I disagree. Advertising for me is the way I connect with the World. It is how I can touch people in the most emotional and personal way. I love smart advertising not because it takes advantage of people but because it hits heartstrings that otherwise, would remain silent.
Advertising is one of the most empathetic industries in the World. If only everyone in this business understood it this way, we’d get rid of that fame.
