Everyone has their own idea of what constitutes “great advertising.” Here’s mine.
Great advertising feels like more than advertising. It sticks with you after you see it. It asks you to reflect on a human truth. Or, it's just really entertaining. And great Creative Directors need a strong point of view. They need to know exactly what they like, why they like it, and what it will take to elevate the work to their highest standard. The best work comes from a seamless blend of creativity and psychology. Everything starts with a big, bold creative idea. But understanding WHY a particular idea will resonate with a particular audience—that’s where the magic happens. I take pride in being not just creative, but strategically creative. If there’s no “why” behind an idea, then that idea is pointless. At the heart of it, what we do every day as creatives is make something out of nothing. And so that thing needs to be the RIGHT thing, at the right time, for the right audience. It all boils down to this: I want to create advertising that feels like more than advertising. If you agree with that, then we already have something in common.
