Every advertisement in the frame is not only from a momentary burst of inspiration but a group of talents who worked behind – the ADmen. The ADmen bring meaning and influence to each piece of advertising behind the scenes. It is this group of talents who speak with their work. If there is no such important people, the advertisement will be one-sided.
Under the torrent of technological progress and media transformation, Hong Kong’s advertising industry is facing continuous changes. It is time for us to promote, celebrate and recruit talents, leveraging each individual’s unique creativity to strengthen and carry on the power of advertising.
