Creative Rankings, Agency of the Year and people, agency profiles and more in adobo magazine’s latest issue

THE PHILIPPINES, SEPTEMBER 28, 2012 – adobo magazine presents another bumper issue for 2012, the 170-page green issue, printed on recycled paper, highlights eco-friendly businesses, adobo’s annual Creative Rankings and the 4As Agency of the Year Awards, along with trends and analysis.
Retail taipan Ben Chan, the founder and owner of Philippine clothing brand Bench, is the cover story as the company celebrates its 25th anniversary. Chan discusses his inspirations, accomplishments and the international recognition Bench has gained as it expands its footprint to include global markets. Chan also looks back on his unique vision in guiding Bench on its overseas forays against established international clothing brands.
