The Golden Clutch December 24, 2014 | POSTED BY Kim McMullen This is Stacey. She is a Creative Renegade. If Flipside were a person, she'd be our right arm, and left lung, and knee cap, and taste buds, and... Basically, this girl is our heart. So it was a no brainer when it was time to give out our Golden Clutch Award, to the Flipsidian who bravely and boldly came through in the clutch all year long for clients, teammates, vendors, etc, that Stacey has earned top honours... READ MORE Meet Bill: The Suit October 23, 2014 | POSTED BY Kim McMullen Great news for Flipside and our killer clients: Bill Hayley has joined our team and he is the just the coolest.

June 19, 2014 | POSTED BY Natalia Baelde It's almost daily that at least one member of our team says "I'm running to Bica to grab a coffee. Or soup!" Cafe Bica serves amazing food and drinks. Honestly, their Potato Bacon soup is the best I've ever tasted... READ MORE Ad Masters Monday: French April 28, 2014 | POSTED BY Kim McMullen Neil French is an advertising master. A copywriting master, actually. As a girl with a degree in rhetoric and a general (and often times vocal) distaste for poor syntax and a bad sales line, I consider French one of the best copywriters around... READ MORE Ad Masters Monday: Reeves April 21, 2014 | POSTED BY Kim McMullen When I was tasked to write my first TV commercial in 2002, I took on the project with gusto – and fear.

READ MORE Ad Masters Monday: Cialdini March 31, 2014 | POSTED BY Kim McMullen It's been nearly 15 years since I graduated with a degree in Rhetoric (The art of persuasion).
