What if you could hire your own
full‑service marketing agency…for nothing?

Are you a designer, developer, media genius or marketeer?

A gig is 24 hours of free food, drinks and fun where we collaborate in a creative, independent environment to make a difference for some local non-profits.

If you're interested in being a part of our upcoming gig (Nov 10-11th) or have questions about how you can help, click below and tell us about yourself.
We'll get back to you asap.

Calling all do-gooders and non-profits in the Fargo / Moorhead community!

Get ready to give back! Register today for the 2018 Good for Nothing 24-Hour Gig brought to you by American Advertising Federation of North Dakota. This year, we’ve gathered some pretty incredible local organizations and we’re kicking things off Friday night, Nov 17th at the Prairie Den!

If you’re interested in participating, remember to register using this Eventbrite link.

We’re looking for all kinds of folks to help out at the event:
• Graphic Designers
• Web Developers
• Marketing/Advertising Experts
• Social Media Wizards
• Writers
• Project Managers
• Cheerleaders (not real cheerleaders, but some awesome people to help energize the teams working)

What is a Good for Nothing gig?


Basically a 24-Hr pop-up advertising agency where we’ve selected some really community-driven clients for you to choose to from. You’ll assemble into small teams and go about providing these groups with marketing assets they can then use to promote their organization. Your team will present the work you created on Saturday night to the rest of the crew and celebrate a long weekend of doing great work for great causes!

Don’t worry, it won’t feel like volunteer work. We’ll supply you with food, beer, coffee, music, inspirational talk, limited edition swag and anything else you might need to get you through the 24-Gig. You’re also not required to be with us for a consecutive 24 hours, you can leave whenever you like to take a dog out, get coffee, sleep, etc. :).

Here’s our tentative schedule.

Friday, Nov 17th:
5:30-6pm Social time
