Where Art & Commerce Intersect

An agency-eye view of Marketing, Advertising, Branding, Design & Media



The Power of Copy

"This chair was built for breaking things."

In writing, there is nothing like a strong refrain. It's why songs have choruses, right? The intention is to drive home a particular theme or point, with repetition. The goal for any writing stands: Make it simple and make it powerful. Yes, that includes brand and copywriting. Great, artful copy can be simple, beautiful, and effectively promote your brand while talking about something else, on the surface.


With the Rio Olympics now in the books, your good friends over here at GLAD WORKS are looking back at couple of our favorite advertising and branding moments surrounding the games. In a series we call "The Power of…", we'll breakdown what we see, using a marketer's eye.


Fun Stuff Friday!

Oh boy! Oh boy! Oh boy! This week we have fire that changes colors, some really cool social media feeds and a printer that prints coffee. Yup. You're just going to have to read on to find that one! Every submission from the GLAD WORKS team is equally delectible, so drink it in, and enjoy every drop.

I love my new Wonder Woman sticker! I think all the women who work at GLAD WORKS should have one because we are all superheroes! 



Your brand has a voice. Do you know what it sounds like? This is an important thing to know and it takes some effort to truly hear and understand the tone that fits best. If you haven't already established a voice, or if you think your existing one needs to evolve, we have good food for thought. It's like a crispy, buttery grilled cheese sandwich for the mind.

Ok maybe it's not that good, but it's pretty close.
