The AMP Lapel Pin

We are celebrating the new Allied Media Projects logo with a small batch of high quality cloisonné lapel pins. They're not just for your blazer – they also look fresh on your beanie, backpack, or on a cork board.

We have a small batch of these pins and we are offering them exclusively as a gift of thanks to people who register for the Allied Media Conference before the end of April, and to anyone who signs up as an AMP sustainer.

AMP’s top 10 turning points of 2013

Turning points are moments when you don’t have to go home, but you can’t stay where you are.  Figuring out the next best move is a kind of improvisational dance – requiring much agility and willingness to be vulnerable, while stepping into the unknown.

Here at Allied Media Projects, we’ve arrived at 2014, having navigated many turning points over the past year with grace, thanks to the deep commitment to figuring-out hard questions on the part of our incredible staff.
