The global refugee crisis is one of the most urgent issues discussed in the news these days. For the International Refugee Assistance Project (IRAP), though, this news cycle is hardly new. Back in 2008, Becca Heller founded IRAP as a student organization at Yale Law School. Today, they’re on the front lines providing legal representation to refugees in a challenging environment. We’re humbled to share the story of one of their clients in our short film, Resettled.
Sporting a made-for-radio voice and a passion for audio storytelling, David Rheinstrom is both a podcast pro and self-proclaimed goofball. Not only has he seen the podcast industry grow over the course of a decade—he’s helping to shape the way we listen today. We had a chance to catch up with David—host of Secrets, Crimes, and Audiotape and Radio Drama Revival—at Cannes Lions. He explained his podcast network’s distinct approach to ads and audio, the ups and downs of the creative process, and where he sees the podcast industry going next.
Arkansas State University faces a unique set of demands. With 10 different campuses in the Arkansas State University System, professors often find themselves shuttling between campuses. And that makes it a constant challenge to ensure students and faculty always have access to the resources they need. To overcome these challenges, the Arkansas State IT team focuses on providing faculty the right technology. One of the tools they use to ensure a world-class education for students is Blackboard Learn™, Blackboard’s flagship learning management system (LMS). And now the school is taking faculty success to a new level by integrating Blackboard Learn with Dropbox Education.
There’s a false distinction that’s often made in the ad world, pitting award-winning creative work against work that’s effective in achieving clients’ business goals. In my opinion, you should never have to choose between those two options. It’s been said that “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” Our 11-year partnership with Frito-Lay is a good example of that adage.

If you manage IT for a team, you know how much of a mixed blessing new tools and features can be. Sure, new task management software might help keep you organized, but your team still has to learn how the application works. Yes, a new file management system could increase team productivity, but you need to understand all the features, then teach everyone else.
Inspirational marketing campaigns can ignite growth by helping your audience find your product and better understand how it will make their lives better. But it isn’t easy to break through the noise and capture people’s attention. The pace of content creation and distribution means you’ll need more than just great messaging and creative. Winning campaigns run on the collaborative brain power of teams across the organization.
