Giveaway: HumanKind

HumanKind invites readers into the world of the legendary advertising agency and the agency that inspired MAD MEN, Leo Burnett and gives a behind-the-scenes look at a global creative network that believes modern-day communication needs to start and end with people. Part coffee-table book, part conversation-starter, HumanKind captures readers from the very first page and challenges modern consumers while redefining marketing and advertising for a new generation and a new century.

HumanKind is a book about people, purpose, and changing behavior, and is a firsthand look at marketing that serves true human needs and not the other way around.

HumanKind provides entree to the moment of germination within the inner sanctum of one of the advertising industry’s most creative shops through interviews, conversations, transcripts, and images.

HumanKind is fully illustrated and includes a step-by-step demonstration of how Leo Burnett is applying its unique approach to forever redefine the very nature of communications itself.

Ultimately, it’s people—not advertising agencies—who create great “people’s brands.” Brands like McDonald’s, Coke, Nintendo, Fiat, Kellogg’s, and Blackberry. Leo Burnett has always chosen to put people first, and to apply a people-centric approach to brand building it today calls HumanKind.

  3. Awesome giveaway!!

    For some reason, I find State farm's commercials memorable...Like a good neighbor...state farm is there...with a hot tub. <33 that commercial!

  4. That would be Hallmark :)

  5. Progressive, State Farm, Geico, Allstate - it seems that insurance companies are doing something right and making their commercials memorable. Folger's has a tried and true approach, but sometimes their sentimentality causes eye-rolling. Dairy Queens recent commercials have caught my attention too.
