GERTRUDE, OZ MFG. COMPANY, & ADC To Host Magik Macaroni

Following the success of GERTRUDE’s inaugural event with the Art Directors Club last year, on October 16th, 2014, GERTRUDE, OZ Manufacturing Co., and the ADC will step things up with the presentation of MAGIK MACARONI, an event focused on innovation in advertising & design that will rally Chicago’s creative community around the ADC to celebrate the very best in creativity.

Just as MAGIK MACARONI is about inspired ideas, so its name stems from an inspired combination:  the famed Chicago Magikist sign and the historical Viviano Macaroni Company—once home to the largest macaroni producing factory in the US.

MAGIK MACARONI will deliver an experiential evening presented through installations and activities curated by the ADC. Some MAGIK MACARONI highlights include The InspirADCion Film Series featuring legendary ad man Lee Clow, the iconic designer Ivan Chermayeff and famed agency architect Clive Wilkinson, an exclusive screening of the 2014 ADC Tomorrow Awards, and the Global ADC Traveling Exhibition. 

Partners from the advertising, production, and creative industries have joined GERTRUDE, OZ MFG. COMPANY, & the ADC to create a truly inspiring event—including title sponsor Leo Burnett, as well as supporting sponsors SID LEE, Shutterstock, Resolution Digital Studios, OKRP, Optimus Design, Luerzer’s ARCHIVE, Berlin School of Creative Leadership, and Creative Niche.
