AAF is hosting AD WARS
Thursday, April 13, 2017
DJs Dugout | Downtown
$150 per team (team should have 6 to 10 team members)
Can you handle the trivia? AdWars promises to be a fun and fact filled event. This team competition tests your knowledge of advertising practices, terminology and trivia. I’ts anything but trivial (just ask someone from the 2016 AAF Omaha AdWars championship team from Bailey Lauerman). It’s a brutal display of seemingly useless terms and acronyms. It’s a grueling and treacherous evening of famous jingles and tag lines. Most of all it’s always fun!
6 in 60 Panel Discussion | Why Advertising Fails?
Date: Tuesday, March 7, 2017
Time: 6:00 PM
Location: DJ’s Dugout, 114th & Dodge
Price: $10 Professional AAF Omaha Members | $15 Guests and Non Members | $5 Students
John Wanamaker famously said, “Half the money I spend on advertising is wasted; the trouble is I don’t know which half.” To try and answer that question we’ve assembled a amazing panel of advertising professionals. They will examine this topic, tell stories and share experiences. This event should be a very informative experience with a few laughs along the way.
David Moore, Creative Director, Bozell
Mary Palu, Head of Connections Strategy, Bailey Lauerman
Sara Smits Wilson, Vice President of Client Services & Public Relations, SKAR
David Distefano, Eleven Twenty-Three Marketing Agency
Amy Goldyn, Creative Director, Envoy, Inc.
Steve Armbruster, Creative Director/Partner, Redstone
During this event the panelists share firsthand experience and advice so that attendees can learn not only best practices, but also about rising trends in the industry. Attendees have the opportunity to ask questions and network with panelists once the 60-minute discussion is complete.

Friday Febuary 3rd at 4 p.m. in Richards Hall 15.
For this lecture, “Storm in a Teacup. Back to questions, back to fragments,” Morey will look at the power of insanity, mischievousness, chaos, sense of loss and a little fantasy to speculate what it means to think, see and create in the current state of the architecture discipline. The lecture will discuss the opportunities of a non-originary architecture/language that is dependent on the power of miscommunication and translation as a means to view oneself and the world from varied vantage points in the aim of achieving a constant layering of delayed purity.
In addition to being this semester’s Hyde Chair, Morey is a Los Angeles based theorist, designer and curator. His interests reside in speculative research and architectural projects. Morey’s work is invested in writing and research in relation to the tensions between text, psychology and image.
Through his research studio YnotWorkshop and partnership in the architectural Office INmo, Morey has been able to investigate and bring to life various pursuits in the creative discipline through such mediums as exhibitions, installations and writings.
Morey is a co-founder of One Night Stand LA, an ongoing curation experiment in cultural representation along with its journal, Morning After. He is also a co-founder of MASKS the Journal, a publication founded while at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design that particularly focuses on the rifts between the subconscious and conscious tensions in the creative arts and the various tangencies within them.
Morey has taught at the Southern California Institute of Architecture and Harvard Graduate School of Design, along with being a visiting critic at Pratt, Woodbury, Cal Poly and the University of Miami. His work has been shown in various cities such as Paris, New York, Boston, Miami and Los Angeles; and his writings are widely published.
