Hopefully you do, or at least the good ones.
Here are six great places to find creative work.
Each is a little different in scope, what is provided free (vs what paid subscribers can get), what channels covered, archives, commentary etc.
We’ve provided links to these on the site as well as below.
To begin with, a local one “Kosana Thai” where you can find the latest in Thai TVCs.
adforumcovers new and breaking work including a “Top 5″ from around the world, that is yours for free. Subscribers get access to a database of around 90,000 spots too.
Creativity Online. A free newsletter that comes out four times per week. Covers the world’s best TV, web films, print, interactive and design work. Archives only available to subscribers, but the newest content is free and updated frequently. Sign-up below.
adsof the world.com is an archive of worldwide advertising
David’s Reviews. This is one of my favourites. Sign up for free and you’ll get issued a user-name and pin number. Log-in for new advertising each day, access to articles and archives. Very easy to use and great content.
And one final one you might not have thought of youtube.
Yeap, in addition to people posting their own content a lot of advertising gets uploaded too.
A “for example”, searching on “Coca Cola advertising” on youtube brought up 78,600 hits!
Of course “Coca Cola” is an extreme example but even smaller categories or brands, including local ones return many hits (eg Nikon 8,020 hits, Singha Beer 96 hits).
This is far from a definitive list of where to find “content” and there are certainly better places to get industry news.
A future column will be on that – places to get breaking news on the marketing and communications industry.
The next one or two will be others on advertising …. the Superbowl 2009 selection and the Freakiest of 2008.
