In case you’re wondering what day it is, and you live in Chicago, wonder no more.
It’s « officially » Laura Desmond day, said Mayor Rahm Emanuel in a video addressing the Chicago Advertising Federation. « Unofficially, » every day can be considered Laura Desmond Day, according to Mr. Emanuel, who praised the global CEO of Publicis‘ Starcom MediaVest Group for « putting Chicago smarts and ingenuity on display in a different country almost every day of the year. »
If you’re wondering what triggered the honor now, Ms. Desmond was just named the Advertising Woman of the Year by the Chicago Advertising Federation, an honor that typically earns a video from the mayor, according to a Starcom MediaVest spokeswoman.
