The first thing I noticed at Zipie HQ was a mannequin in a bathrobe. Naturally, it completely wigged me out. Full-service digital advertising agencies are not, apparently, for the faint of heart. In our morning meeting, I learned everyone’s names—including the mannequin. He was our own Cousin Eddie from National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. Not [...]
