AAFJAX presents: Jim Hord

The Brand Life; using digital to stop advertising and start becoming useful in people’s lives, featuring Jim Hord of J Walter Thompson.

If you’re not able to make it out to the free event “It’s OK to Print” this Thursday, then maybe you’ll make it out to “The Brand Life with Jim Hord” presented by AAFJAX. Jim will talk about Nike’s digital strategy of talking to consumers by first creating platforms that fit in to people’s lives. Then by breaking through with campaigns that resonate with this already-eager audience.

Jim’s work for Microsoft & Nike+ garnered him a 2009 Silver Lion at Cannes, a Bronze One Show Pencil and several Webby Awards.

Join us for an inside look at how the Microsoft & Nike brand reaches out to consumers by fitting their lives.
