Agency bigwigs get weepy at talent shortage

The best ideas are so obvious you wonder why nobody did it before.

Like these high impact images to promote ADMA’s message that the industry is “crying out” for new talent.

The featured weeping bigwigs include Wunderman’s Matt Batten:

The campaign, devised by Wunderman pair Amanda Glover and Ben Peppernell to launch ADMA’s Creative School and Suit School, was revealed at an event last night.

They were shot by photographer Steve Greenaway of Pomegranate, with additional work from a team of retouchers at Limehouse Creative.

And should any of them lose a pitch, Dr Mumbo now has the perfect picture to illustrate the news story with.
