Canadian agency woos unhappy Publicis creatives

Prefer awards to AI? Come to Calgary, says WAX.

Some agency creatives are facing the prospect of a year away from the awards shows. But if that sounds untenable, Calgary creative agency Wax is offering a "One-Year Break" to all agency folks—copywriters, art director, designers, strategists and account people—looking for a place that’s definitely going to be entering the 2018 awards show circuit. Applicants whose portfolios are accepted will get a guaranteed yearlong contract. They’ll need to move north of the border, but these days, that might be another bonus.
