What’s Happening in Chicago?

By Matt Van Hoven 

Lately, the work doesn’t seem to be coming in. And whether it’s because of bad work or bad business practices, people are leaving all over the place.

The latest walk-offs happening in the city that blows (Chicago), are at JWT, where adult diapers and Illinois tourism are apparently the only remaining clients. Supposedly, a few creatives have left.


But guys, what the hell are you doing? The climate in Chicago is so bad right now that leaving when you’re still getting a pay check isn’t such a good move.

notes that with Kraft’s recent guard-change, a lot of business was taken from “longtime” agency JWT. Young and Rubicam may team with Wunderman, says Adweek, in an attempt to sweep up the loose change.
