Where are all the proper ACDs at? Either it's senior/mid creatives who have been promoted too early or ACDs who did the job for a year and are now freelancing as creative directors.

Strategists, planners and CDs: Can we please share these stats with our clients? Then maybe we could all get fun work approved? And maybe our clients would see better results, too? Probably some here will say that followers don't equal sales, but I would bet most clients would love as much PR chatter (in addition to followers) as Liquid Death gets. Creatives, imagine if selling work like Liquid Death's was the norm. Man, our life would be so fun.
