Getty Images Tasting the Limits Seminar

June 21, 2007 | By Stephanie Hubbard | Creative



Advertisers often tiptoe near or across the fine line of what is acceptable in advertising, but where do we draw the line between tolerable and offensive ideas? Yesterday, an exclusive panel of leading international thinkers and risk takers explored boundaries of advertising during Tasting the Limits. They debated and offered insight into the competitive environment of advertising and why great adverts are expected to not just push the boundaries…but break them.



Moderator: Lewis Blackwell – Group Creative Director, Getty Images

Panel Members:

1. Cami Levin – Creative Director, MTV Networks International

2. Jillian Lochner – Photographer (freelancer for Getty Images)

3. Mark Charkin – VP Advertising, Bebo

5. Amir Kassaei – Chief Creative Officer, DDB Germany
