The winning I Love STEM campaign from DDB Chicago premiered in conjunction with
Emersons 125th anniversary in 2015. To commemorate the milestone, Emerson worked
with DDB to create an initiative promoting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering,
Math) careers to inspire and empower the next generation of scientists and engineers
while also attracting new talent. DDB Chicago and Emerson partnered with popular
vlogger and self-proclaimed science nerd Hank Green to create a multifaceted
campaign with a positive STEM-centric message that included Emersons first-ever
national television spot, which aired during The Big Bang Theory. In addition to
Emerson, DDB Chicagos clients also include State Farm, Mars, Lifelock, and the
American Cancer Society.
What were seeing more and more is advertising that not only stands out as great b-tob work, but as great work plain and simple, said Ad Age Editor Ken Wheaton. The
successful advertisers in the space know that behind the second b in b-to-b, there is
still a person making decisions and they have to connect with that person in order to
close the deal whether its via print, video, digital or even non-traditional activations.
Im very proud of the work weve done for Emerson and I commend the team on welldeserved recognition, said Paul Gunning, CEO of DDB Chicago. Im thankful to Ad
Age for rewarding a great creative effort, and we will do the honor justice by continuing
to make great b-to-b creative for our clients.
