Any CREATIVE, AWARD-WINNING healthcare agencies in NYC besides of Area 23? I want to do more than these never-ending launches and boring brochures 😪 If they do Social Impact, Consumer healthcare (OTC), Welless, or related categories out of Pharma, even better.

I used to work at A23. Most of the “creative” work is spec, pro bono, etc. I’d like to work on OTC brands or categories that don’t require too much clinical language. That is a torture to me 😪

They are not. There’s a lot of limitations. I just want to sell products to consumers, not saving lives. That’s what doctors are for.

Klick! Independent agency that actually sticks to their employee first mantra, which is easy to do when you don’t answer to a greedy holding company.

I know. I joined them because I thought the daily work was going to be exciting. I left as soon as I could. Most of the creative work is fake.

Yeah. I was so impressed with their creative work and when I met Tim and some CDs I decided to join... I didn’t knew what a CVA was and that it takes 1 to 2 years to make a stupid brochure. It was a nightmare.

The best work Area 23 has ever done is take a few wins and convince you all that they’re the non-pharma pharma agency. Yes, they’ve done some great work, no question, but its select teams. The majority of the work is as pharma as everything else.

Maybe a strange take but I think that we should be more in touch with our internal bodies. We can send astronauts to the moon and rovers to mars but there’s no easy, portable way to scan our bodies to see what’s going on inside (e.g., a DIY full body xray or MRI). I think this could be the next gen of weighing scales that also show various health metrics, track fitness, etc. It could help with prevention and diagnosis. I guess it’s bad for health providers who make $ today from this. Thoughts?
