POSTPUBLICIDAD (Post-advertising)

Reflections on a New Advertising Culture

Postpublicidad (Post-advertising), the Book.
The book is an overall reflection on the situation in which advertising finds itself after the violent and amazing eruption of the internet and new media. Post-advertising explores advertising´s yin and yang, and the ways in which we are shifting from one communication culture to another. It delves into the need for "edible" advertising and the methods and ingredients with which to infuse ads with this edibility; the liquid nature of the internet and the liquefaction of the global media environment; of brands´ challenges in penetrating social territories, the need for them to acquire social manners and to learn to speak a language that they´ve never before used: the language of the people.

The Gaseous book

Extracts of the content of the Postpublicidad (Post-advertising) book put forth in the hopes of generating opinion, participation and debate.

We are living in changing times, times of transition, of coexistence between different cultures. Hybrid times, in which the traditional disciplines blend together and the borders become blurred, when new ways of communicating emerge that are so different from what we have known thus far that they don’t seem to have anything in common with what we know as "advertising." These are post-advertising times.
