Thank you for your participation at this year's IDEA Awards Gala!
2017 IDEA AWARDS WINNERS
STEP & REPEAT
The Fun Run 5K was a celebration of all things active and fun in support of a great cause. Thanks to Mindshare, we hosted our second annual event at the California-famous Campus in Playa Vista. It was great to run the dirt-trail bluffs, drink champagne with friends, make new friends, and play life-sized games! Thanks to all that came out.
Proceeds from each ticket went toward Ad Relief to help someone in crisis get back on their feet again - and we raised several hundred dollars, THANK YOU!

Thank you for attending Digital Production: Process and Profitability. We would like to extend a big thank you to Don Lupo for a highly educational session.
We learned what it takes to make a digital project efficient and profitable, whether producing banners, a mobile app, or a website as well as the basics of the digital production process, how to estimate for projects, and why the client needs to pay for IA, UX, and QA as every agency has challenges with digital production:
• Account does not always know it well
• Creative does not always follow best practices
• Finance doesn’t always know how to bill for it
Very few people know how to make it profitable Digital production can be far more complicated than anyone anticipates, but focusing on process can make it much easier. In this class, we discussed what it takes to not only get websites and banners out the door AND how to get them done efficiently and (hopefully) profitable.
We hope everyone enjoyed the 2017 Auto Breakfast! We are grateful to our speakers and especially to our sponsors who helped make all the magic happen. This year’s event was presented by PlaceIQ, and supported by Pinterest, Cox Automotive, and Eyeview.
We kicked off with an energizing keynote from Brian Cooley of CNET, who set the scene with his fast-paced rundown of all that’s new and happening in the auto world, and what to look for as the “next big thing”.
Next, we took a deep dive into the world of “influence” and considered what it takes to create it, measure it, and assess its value in auto marketing. We were entertained and enlightened by speakers from several auto brands and agency partners who contribute so much to the ThinkLA community. The role of emerging technology was explored through some deeply engaged discussion among industry thought leaders.
