ADCH and HAF Social

ADCH and HAF Social
August 29th
ADCH members from across Houston converged on the bar at Arcodoros to mix and mingle with members of HAF and the wide-eyed youngsters of Ad2 on Wednesday night, August 29th. All of your ADCH brass were there, along with several past presidents and many current members. Grapparitas and beer were flowing, business cards were flying, and some damn good appetizers were consumed in what became a crowded and boisterous atmosphere. Photos of the party can be found on the ADCH Gallery, where none of the names have been changed, because no one is presumed innocent.

If you want to throw your hat in the ring for ADCH's upcoming Annual Award show, you can download the forms below. Show us what you've got! Entires will be accepted through September 12th. At the end of the month, you'll have the opportunity to meet the fine collection of judges that ADCH has assembled to pick the winners; more details about the Meet The Judges event are forthcoming. The Award Show itself will take place on November 3rd. This is your chance to show your chops in front of your friends, rivals and colleagues from ADCH. If you missed out on the mixer this month, no more excuses: come out to Meet The Judges at the end of the month. We'll see you there!

All the fun of tag-team graffiti. None of the danger.

Domy Bookstore and Cafe Brasil | map

On May 24th, ADCH held a unique participatory event co-sponsored by Domy Bookstore and Cafe Brasil. Attendees were invited to draw, write, hang out, drink and create a communal work of art with designers, illustrators, artists, art directors and writers from above and below ground.

Many individual works of art were created. Collaborative pieces were also generated that night, one written and one drawn. Both were inspired by the Surrealists and their exquisite corpse experiments. To read the story written that night and to see sketches and event photos, visit the ADCH blog.

At the end of the night the sketches and writings were unveiled and people lined up to read the collaborative story and view the art.

How do you elevate a brand to an iconic status that transcends language barriers?
Jeff Steinhour

February 22, 2007
VT2 Studios

That's exactly what has happened with "V Dub." Fortunately, Jeff Steinhour - one of the brains behind VW's wildly successful campaign - was in Houston to discuss the work the world is talking (or signaling) about. If you witnessed the Houston appearance of his Crispin Porter + Bogusky brethren, you know this was a must-see event.
