Creatives, let’s talk creative briefs.

I recently attended a webinar with Rosie Arnold (ex ECD BBH).

Someone asked “What do creatives want from strategists, what does a great brief consist of?”

Rosie said to keep it dead simple and that actually, a smart insight, can throw a creative and the process and that it’s better to just have a simple one.

What are your 2 top tips for a creative brief?
- addressing one GOOD (to adopt or consider)
& one BAD (to change or avoid)



Yo recruiters, there's a difference between copywriters and copy writers. learn it before you get my hopes up with another cold email. Please.


Thought experiment for you, fishies.

We all love to hate on billable hours. What’s a real, feasible alternative???

Small agency owner 🙋🏻‍♂️ I’ve wracked my brain and have 3 biz model options, none great:

Billable hrs: Generally accepted. We all know the downsides.

Pay4performance: Big upside potential, tons of risks.

Project pricing: Cloak for billable hours. You have to estimate project cost with something.

Who’s thought of a better approach??? Genuinely curious if there is one.
