Creatives - if you aren’t happy with what your strategy partners are giving you, talk to us, or at least talk to your department heads and ask them to help get changes made. We can handle criticism, and it’s a lot more useful when it’s not in the middle of a briefing session. Also, while you’re at it, maybe spend some time talking to us about what else we do outside of writing briefs, because we do a lot.
