What you should expect to see while here in Atlanta.


The advertising community in Atlanta, has many areas of interest. And with the city of Atlanta and its suburbs having been largely developed in the past 20 years, advertising is one visible art world that brings on development and grows with development through time. Quote: "Arts goal can be seen as a slightly modified version of branding. Without a marketplace, the art world could not survive." (Todd Woodlan; The Branding of Art; Deconform Magazine; Volume 2.1; Fall 2005)

A brief history of advertising in Atlanta:


The basis to big corporations being made in our great country.
Just a few of the companies and icons we see that have been around for some time: Home Depot, Coca-Cola, Chick-Fil-A, Georgia-Pacific, and Bellsouth. These are a few companies that have come to be the businesses we see today in the southeastern market. Just recently, as a pattern of corporate identity and expansion, we have corporations like Turner Broadcasting and the Atlanta-Journal Constitution in Atlanta that have moved what we see today in mainsream media, selling and buying in advertising. With the big changes in demographical markets and computer development in recent years, we have started to see big strides in the way we, as "Americans", market towards one another. Example: whether it is a business or a service, Turner Broadcasting and it's affiliates represent a huge share of the market in all of North America's media coverage while they're news media covers the whole globe. We see it here more than anyone else because we have a wealth to lots of information sharing and media access. Advertising is a big share of media's revenue and profiting. In respect, atlanta is an great location for information based advertisers, service based advertisers, and organizations representing the immense group of professionals.
