“ [ Digital ] is
the centerpiece of a broader campaign. I think that’s become a real integral part of how we use the web , moving beyond just promoting web addresses in TV spots or print ads to really making them a critical part of the storytelling for the brands.” Rob Master Media Director, North America Unilever March 2008 Source: Advertising Age - http://adage.com/article?article_id=125663
“ Something remarkable is worth
talking about. Worth noticing. Exceptional. New . Interesting. It’s a Purple Cow . Boring stuff is invisible .
