- "The Awesome World of Advertising" is a Tumblr blog created by an anonymous ad agency creative to poke fun at agency life.
- The blog started after the artist created a cartoon to make fun of something at their agency; a co-worker, now a collaborator on the project, suggested the artist start a Tumblr blog and post more of the same type of cartoons.
- According to the artist, the worst part of agency life is the disrespect that employees often have for the people they work with, though the artist admits that downside might not be agency-specific.
From the article:
"What is the most frustrating part of today’s agency model that could be fixed ASAP?
People live in fear. Everybody is always under a lot of pressure — timelines and money and stuff. It gets very tiring and wears a lot of people out. I think we need to make working in advertising fun again, because that’s the reason why we got into it in the first place."
