Black Khaki helps Clover spread the word
Numerous studies worldwide have shown that modern kids, particularly those in urban areas, have lost touch with the world outside city limits.

Many of them have never seen an actual cow up close, and would only have a foggy notion of how their milk gets to the breakfast table. They may also be unaware of the health benefits of dairy products in general, and milk in particular.

Einstein the ad man
During my ‘international’ agency days, I was fortunate to travel quite a bit, since I was the Global Account Director on a major airline account. One such trip took me to San Francisco where I had the privilege of meeting Kevin Roddy, the Creative Director of our agency in that city. He really impressed me with his deep understanding of the need to create ‘human’ advertising that would touch the consumer it was aimed at. I recently came across a rather tongue-in-cheek article that he had written. It’s an article that contains many truths. I hope you enjoy it.

The CD Collection: #3
Creative Departments – Ever and Always on the Cutting Edge.

As I sat proof checking in the Black Khaki creative department last week, I saw Sandile, a young account executive, watching Raymond, our highly experienced DTP Manager, skillfully trim print layouts and mount them onto board for a client presentation.

Sandile asked if accidents happen, given the wickedly sharp cutting edges of the NT cutters and guillotines used for this everyday studio task. He was instantly regaled by every creative (ahem, myself included) with blood-curdling tales of blades that had slipped in careless hands, resulting in lopped off fingertips and nails at the very least, and severed digits at worst.
