Hard to believe, but this year marks my 25th year in the advertising business.
Along the way I’ve made more mistakes than I care to acknowledge. But have also managed to do a lot of things right. After thousands of meetings, hundreds of campaigns and more than a quarter century of trying to do the best creative I could for my clients, I’ve come to believe in certain things. I’ve come to hold onto certain truths that I believe are critical to being successful in this crazy, ever-evolving business.
The list below is admittedly simplistic. And many of these thoughts were collected from early in my career. But I think they still hold true and hope you might find a thought of two that might be helpful to you in your pursuit of great work.
