One of the biggest rewards for an advertising creative (besides standing on some stage to pick up an award) is seeing a 20 by 20 meter version hanging on a building in the biggest shopping street of the city where you live. It happened to me yesterday. I was totally unaware that I already passed the thing when I walked at the Meir in Antwerp, but when I looked back I saw my campaign for Bongo.
I was standing there for a while looking at it. Passers-by probably thought: what the hell is he staring at for such a long time. But I didn't care. Here was the reward for a couple of months hard work, it was hanging on a building and I was enjoying it. The English version of the campaign is not ready yet, but as soon as I get an approval on the right translation, I'm going to publish it on my blog.
