Ad Life

AdLife, Updates from the Front Lines of Advertising

The Ad Life is not for the faint of heart. You work hard, have long hours and are at the mercy of your clients. Some clients will be amazing, others not so much and a select few will be just intolerable. You will live for pushing the mute button on conference calls to rant about your client and liquid therapy sessions with your fellow soldiers.  You won’t make real money until you climb high enough up the corporate ladder and you have to fill out these damn time sheets from hell. All that being said the advertising industry is one of the best industries to work in. AMC’s Mad Men showed the world how addicting, intriguing and out right outlandish working in advertising can be. The truth is that not much has changed and the advertising industry is thriving. At ADCULTURE we aim to bring you all the glory, hilarity and genius of advertising. You’ll  meet the people who make it all happen, their incredible stories, thought provoking work and wild adventures. Use the hashtag #AdLife to follow our stories, explore the lifestyle and share your own  glorious adventures in advertising.
