About the Event

They'll also talk about disruption in today's advertising landscape — how not advertising at all can sometimes be the most powerful move.
Joining Adam and Devin, is CP+B Associate Creative Director Brett Dixon and CP+B Senior Strategist, Bethany Lechner, who took home a Bronze pencil for their work on 'The Professionals Collection' for Fruit of the Loom.
Come early, stay late, chat face to face with the pros at CP+B & fellow industry folk too. Be influenced by the world's top creative minds. Get inspired. Sharpen your own creative pencil and turn it into gold.

To stumble into Invisible City would feel like falling back in time. Housed in a building rich with Denver's history, you may encounter emotions reminiscent of a dream, an era you have a hard time putting your finger on, breath taking and Intimate. Invisible city is a place, yes. But it's more than that, within these walls is a growing community. We are explorers, those who refuse to live a life at surface level. We are the curious, the engaged, a group who believes that to create the kind of life you want to live takes effort from within. We believe that the happiest people have the most community and that any moment has the potential to be the best of our lives.
Since it would be unlikely for you to simply stumble in... Let us invite you.

Brett DixonAssociate Creative Director, CP+B
Born and raised in Syracuse, NY, Brett graduated from a small SUNY college that had a strange smell at night. And he loved every minute of it. After that, he spent over a decade in NYC, earning his stripes at places like Saatchi and mcgarrybowen. In 2015, CP+B came calling. If that wasn’t lovely enough, the allure of fresh air, fresh powder, a car, and enough room for a dog were all too good to pass up. At Crispin, he’s worked on many accounts, including Infiniti, Hotels.com, Twizzlers, barkTHINS, Almond Joy, and Fruit of the Loom. And he now has the dog he’s always wanted. Please give him a round of applause. Not tonight. Just, in general, if you ever see him, start clapping. It will confuse him greatly, which should be fun for you.
