At the corner of Grand and Varick streets lies One Hudson Square, an Art Deco factory-turned-office building that won landmark status last year.

Adweek recently gathered several creative and tech industry leaders at The Lot (home of Funny or Die) in West Hollywood for a frank discussion about the state of the ad business in the City of Angels. 

We've been gawking at him since he first stepped onto the pitch 22 years ago. Not much has changed since. The footballer turned international star has commanded our attention with his athletic performances as well as his looks. And that doesn’t seem to be changing anytime soon.

The Alibaba Group is having its initial public offering today. There is no question the "Amazon of the East" is set to make several people wealthy, including co-founders Jack Ma and Joseph Tsai (Alibaba is estimated to raise over $20 billion in its IPO).

Fall is right around the corner, and that means it's time to (begrudgingly, perhaps) refresh your look. Where better to get sartorial advice than from GQ, a brand that has been dishing out style tips for over 50 years?

You've logged countless hours on the Internet, in front of a television or just participating in society—absorbing ad messages wherever you go. Branding is everywhere, whether you like it or not.
