About The New Orleans Egotist
The New Orleans Egotist is dedicated to elevating the creative profile of our city, and creative people, primarily in advertising, design and marketing. Despite the devastation we've experienced, our city is rising. The rapid growth of entrepreneurship, plus a burgeoning film industry have made a real difference. But has the advertising, design and marketing community kept up? We can do better.ê
Let's be honest. We're hardly on everyone's radar. That can only happen if we commit ourselves to doing world-class work. This site's mission is to help foster an intense hunger to grow the reputation of our creative community. How? By doing great work that gets noticed, that explodes in the marketplace, and gets results. Here, we can share it, feature it, and critique it. As a community, we can forge closer ties among creative folks within our city and beyond.
While the focus of the New Orleans Egotist is local, the scope of our network is international. Let's challenge ourselves and each other, and show the world that New Orleans means business.
A Note To Businesses
Whether inside agencies, marketing and design firms, or among potential clients, it's our choice to hire locally, and to demand great work. When we do, we can draw even more great talent to our city.
Even as we challenge our creative community to step it up, we extend that challenge to other business owners. Before sending your business out of town, give our own a chance... even if it's only to pitch. Check our profiles, links and listings, whether for companies or individuals, and help to build a Greater New Orleans that really is great.
