"Breaking all the rules" March Networking & Professional Development Program

Breaking all the rules:
A case study from the Martin Agency, creators of GEICO’s Gecko, Caveman, Talking Pig…and other less subtle characters.

The Martin Agency has created so many different campaigns for GEICO, often running them simultaneously, that it has turned sacred rules of advertising on their head, among them, “Thou shall be rigorously consistent in graphics, theme and style” and “Thou shall have but one spokesbeast.”

But the Virginia-based shop has followed one tenet faithfully: “Help thy client’s bottom line.”

Parker Collins, account supervisor at The Martin Agency, will give you the genesis of GEICO’s most memorable characters, such as the sensitive Cave Men, The Gecko, Maxwell the Pig and the musical duo of Ronny and Jimmy —and explain the method behind Martin’s madness.

Register today. You’ll be happier than a woodpecker with a power drill.
