I have a decent book. TV. Clever lines. Some press recognition. No major awards. (My agency hasn’t won a creative award in 10 plus years). My favorite ideas die before clients, with clients, or during pitches. In my opinion, they are more conceptual, insightful, and representative of the irreverent work I want to make. Common problem.
