Working in advertising has given me a different view on certain things that I used to take as read in my previous client-side roles (she says, for all of the 56 days of her advertising career). I mean this in a completely positive way – I now have a way of seeing things from both sides and I think this will help a lot over the coming months as I get stuck into my new (ish) job.
There are always a lot of jokes about advertising and people who work in the industry, like this from one of my favourite web comics, Toothpaste For Dinner:
There have also been a few decent books and films born out of advertising, and one of them happens to be the book that I’m reading at the moment…
I’m only a couple of chapters in but I’m already enjoying it. It’s about a composer who writes music for ads and leads a double life. I shall endeavour to post a review once it’s done.
What are you reading at the moment?
