Overview

Most people who work in advertising are familiar with the terms “above” and “below the line.”  But with technology invading every area of our culture, the digital realm exists outside that paradigm entirely. Brands unsure of how to work within trends in emerging tech, are looking for compelling ways to embed ideas into media “beyond the line.”

Based on her unique perspective gained through working in broadcast, interactive, online strategy and experience design, Kim Alpert will examine this ever-changing frontier, where advertising, art, and innovation collide, and creative can go beyond what we ever dreamed possible.
