If a change in law automatically changed society, then Saatchi & Saatchi's Kevin Roberts would be on-point in inferring that gender equality is a non-issue. But because this isn't how the world works, he's dead wrong.
ASB has announced the highly anticipated release of ‘Clever Kash’, developed alongside Saatchi & Saatchi. It will be available, in limited supply, this spring.
