Over the years we've hosted influential speakers from inside and out the ad business, including Pandora founder Tim Westergren and author and autism awareness advocate Temple Grandin. Starting this Thursday at 2:00 PM PDT, we're inviting the public to watch Deutsch Commons Live and our special guest, legendary ad director Joe Pytka. You can watch on http://www.livestream.com/deutschla or, if you're in the LA area, join us at our office. We'll also be tweeting at #deutschcl.
Pytka has made more than 5,000 commercials, more than 80 Super Bowl ads, and numerous musical videos. Some of his work includes "Bo Knows" for Nike, "This is your brain on drugs," and the Bartles & Jaymes guys. He'll talk about his career and what makes a great ad—all in his signature no-BS style.
The series will continue with Porter Gale, who created Virgin America's innovative social media strategy, and Team Rubicon, a disaster relief force made up of military veterans.
