From the pulpit

The Editor’s introduction

Issue 38 | March 2016

This is the Issue of Lists.

Lists of the top campaigns, the top agencies, the top folks.

I write at some length about what I think the lists reveal on pages 6-17.

Here I thought I’d write another list.
My personal 10 favourite advertising ideas of 2015.

My criteria of judgement are nicked from Lars Bastholm’s* list of the three attributes of great digital advertising.
The idea has to be useful, usable and/or delightful.

The number in brackets is the campaign’s position in the Big Won rankings of Top Campaigns Across All Media.
