March 27, 2014 | Lynlee Espeseth: Twitter And The Power Of Public Opinion

Before you go to eat at a new restaurant, or to see a new movie, do you check reviews first? Quite a few people do, and businesses know it. A few years ago, if you got “two thumbs up” from Ebert and Roeper or a glowing review in the New York Times, it was the pinnacle of review success, and could mean sold out showings or full tables every night.

We all hit that slump in our creativity from time to time. When you feel you have nothing new to try and wonder if you are still good at what you do. Well for those times the best remedy is to look back at some of your best work and to look closely at what some of the best are creating now.

February 28, 2014 | Lynlee Espeseth: Why Did Olympic Advertising Leave Dads In The Dust?

The way media portrays dads has long been a point of concern. Making dads out to be bumbling, stumbling fools who can’t figure out how to get their kids dressed, much less instill values in them, is an out-of-date stereotype that doesn’t fit with modern parenthood anymore.
