The Drum 13 May

This issue of The Drum we take a look at the computers that could soon be putting copywriters out of work, and catch up with Dazed's Jefferson Hack.

Man v machine

It is assumed that certain jobs, creative roles in particular, will always require a human touch, but with persuasive language generator Persado raising $21m in funding earlier this year, we ask whether copywriters should be worried.

Hacking print

Editor Stephen Lepitak catches up Jefferson Hack to find out more about his quest to bring HD video to print, which was realised earlier this year when Rihanna came to life on the cover of AnOther Magazine.

Friends with strangers

As it is named The Drum Marketing Awards Brand of the Year, Gillian West goes behind the scenes of Airbnb’s first global campaign ‘Never A Stranger’.

Access all areas

How would you like to get inside the head, and office, of one of the most powerful people in advertising, with none other than Maurice Lévy as your tour guide? The Drum gives a sneak peek of its virtual reality shoot at Publicis Drugstore.
