R.I.P. Commpiled.com

Sadly, the web site Commpiled.com - The Marketing Communications Network - notes today that "The Commpiled Network has been closed and is now for sale." For many the site was a great source of information and inspiration. Articles about various aspects of advertising, marketing, promotion, design and creativity were staples of the web presence. Over a dozen of my own articles appeared on the site since 2004. Thanks to Howard Theriot, and others who were involved, for all of their efforts on the site. It will be missed.

I've already received a few requests for links to my articles that appeared on Commpiled.com. If possible, the pieces are linked below. Some of the articles have also been blog-oMotives entries, published in How Magazine, or posted on CreativeLatitude.com, Graphics.com, and the former StickyIdeas.com. I will get others posted as soon as possible.

It's sad, how Commpiled is no more. It was a great resource.

Thanks for posting your articles on your blog. I always look forward to your great words of wisdom.
