We’ve all seen the articles out there titled “30 under 30” and “40 under 40.” These lists are what we like to call...ageist B.S. And a symptom of a much larger problem that’s finally starting to get some press. To that end, we’ve interviewed advertising creatives who--despite being over (or nearing) 50--are still going strong in the industry or even changing course...and finding happiness. We do this to draw attention to the wealth of talent that too often goes under-appreciated, as well as to provide some inspiration to those who might feel anxious (ok, petrified, even) about what their own future holds.
