Well, congratulations and all to imc2, the Dallas-based virtual ad agency that markets on the Interwebs such big-money clients as 7-Eleven, Inc., Kellogg's, Johnson & Johnson and Procter & Gamble. Advertising Age has once more chosen imc2 as a "top 10 digital agency," as it comes in at No. 10 out of 50 such agencies virtually pimping products. Just pile it atop imc2's list of achievements, including being named one of the "fastest-growing private companies in the Metroplex" by SMU's Cox School of Business.
And congrats to imc2 for stealing away Mike Simmons, the now-former art director for the paper version of Unfair Park; really appreciate that, imc2. Guess now's as good a time as any to post that art director help-wanted ad we're running on the mothership's Web site. We can't promise you scooters in the hallway, though. That's strictly ad agency nonsense. This is work, damn it, not fifth grade. --Robert Wilonsky
