I just got back from judging the Seattle Addy awards show over the weekend My first time in that city. And I loved it. It’s a great town and has its own immediately discernible culture and a very relaxed vibe.
My fellow judges included McDonalds’ CD Mark Carlson, RGA’s Jeff Greenspan, Matt Ferrrahah from FCB Chicago, and the remarkably spry Tom Dooley, founder and CD of TDA Advertising. For a man of his greatly advanced years, Tom is in great shape. Crispin Porter stole his idea of living in Colorado. He preceded them by decades.
Thanks to Kalie everyone who made my stay in the northwest so enjoyable. It was a blast. And a model of great organization. The work was great too. And for once there was real harmony among the judges. A great experience was had by all.
