Mad Men Memos: Meditiations in an Emergency

This Week’s Memo: ‘MEDITATIONS IN AN EMERGENCY’

With Sunday came the “Mad Men” finale, tying up all (well, nearly all) of the plot threads that have been brought to a boil since the start of the season.

Sean – Paper Aerospace Engineer
Sean worked all last week on MLT’s latest new business outreach. I can’t go into full detail — it’s mostly Top Secret at this point. But I CAN tell you it involves a popular stomach relief medicine, a film canister and a sweet rocket designed by Sean “X-acto Blade” Borja. It’s all hush-hush, but I can give you a leaked photo from the MLT R&D Department.

Not everything we do is pretty

Here at MLT Creative (the greatest B2B agency on the face of the planet), not all we produce is beautiful. Sure our campaigns win awards, yes we work overtime to produce creative marketing solutions for our clients, but we also output trash – lots and lots of trash.
