NEW YORK, Jan. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Today marks the official launch of the Emerging Times,, a new daily blog geared at informing, inspiring and motivating change for professionals that make the products and brands we buy. The site is written by creative marketer, Michael Ferrare, who provides insights on a younger, next generation consumer by delivering emerging trends in marketing, media, advertising, and entertainment. The site also has a strong focus on leadership and what it takes to take advantage of it all.

"You read it everyday and take away valuable and inspiring information," said Ferrare. "It's the length of an iPhone screen - you quickly get in and get something out of it. The posts are aimed at the thinkers of tomorrow: young entrepreneurs, marketing professionals, brand managers, media and advertising professionals, even CEOs."

The blog is designed to "mirror" the work week with big ideas early in the week, small executable ideas for later in the week and more high-level thinking on the weekends. Michael Ferrare writes about what people need to know in order to both be inspired and successful with their brand and marketing endeavors. Ferrare is the founder of Agency Magma, a full-service creative content and marketing agency. He also worked at Crispin, Porter + Bogusky, where he went on to execute award-winning integrated creative work for Virgin Atlantic, Method Home Care, Volkswagen, Borders, Burger King and MINI Cooper. He also served as creative consultant for Saatchi & Saatchi Worldwide, BBH, AvenueA/Razorfish, Digitas, and Fallon McElliot.

Ferrare has also received numerous top industry awards and recognitions for integrated campaigns and innovation in advertising including multiple Cannes Grand Prixs (Best of Show), Cannes Titaniums, One Shows, Addys, D&ADs, Webbys, International Andy's, LIAAs, and the Clios. Ferrare was also part of the team that helped Crispin, Porter + Bogusky gain multiple agency of the year honors along with an interactive agency of the year award.
