So what do you do when the powers that be inform you that you’re moving out of your office space and you’re only allowed to bring a milk crate worth of stuff with you? In agency land, that’s practically nothing! Where do your samples go? Your files? All the bizarre media tchotchkes you’ve accrued over the years? And how many things are you going to have to throw away just to get down to your one precious milk crate?

I love makeover reality TV, experts transforming homes, hairstyles and wardrobes. I’ve undergone a career makeover—not an extreme one, but certainly redefined. Medical editing mainly involves adherence to style and grammar rules, consistency and fact checks. Now, as a brand editor for an all-digital team, an added part of my job here at the New York offices of Havas Life Metro, is to understand each project’s specifications. I’ve become a student of functionality—clicks, taps, scrolls, swipes, pop-ups, buttons, and burger and navigation menus.

This is especially true within the Pharmaceutical and Biotech industry, as designers are constantly challenged to create content-heavy media that is both aesthetically pleasing and highly usable.

Closed Loop Marketing (CLM)

For nearly a decade, the concept of Closed Loop Marketing has echoed through the halls of most major Pharmaceutical and Biotech companies. The idea is simple enough; capture interactions with a physician during the sales call, analyze the physicians’ preferences, and use this information to create a more personalized approach to detailing and increasing Rx sales in the process.

As with every role within the advertising agency, there are many stereotypes associated with the Account Management function. Many assume we have the easiest job in the agency and that we’re the keepers of timelines and budgets, or the schmoozers of clients.

Finishing one marathon in a lifetime is quite an achievement for any person. Running seven marathons is even more momentous. Add in a battle against Cystic Fibrosis, a genetic disease that causes difficulty in breathing due to mucus build-up in the lungs and excessive loss of salt and sweat, and you are literally pushing the limits of what is possible.

Welcome to Stephen Bell’s world.
