How do you answer the question “what’s your process like”? I tend to ramble simply because I have no concrete process.

I like to take a day or two to myself and do as much research and reading as I can before brainstorming with a partner. Also like to bring some rough ideas to the table before we meet. But that’s if timing allows of course!

same. always hated when partners wanted to go find a room and brainstorm right away with no prior thinking or research. always felt like the ideas were super hack and surface level that way. but it can be a good way to get some of the lame ideas out of the way quickly. or immediately hear your partners perspective on the brief and expand your mind. if that happens then i would still go concept on my own after and then bring them to the next concepting meeting

I work at a small firm and I am the only first year associate. A semi-frequent problem I have is I will send a partner my research findings and never hear back. I automatically assume this means my work was not helpful/total crap, and they just don’t want to hurt my feelings. Of course there could be other reasons but....Is it okay to send a follow-up email to ask if what I sent was helpful or if I can be of further help? I don’t want to sound needy or whiney but I also want clarity. Cont’d

As a CD, how critical are you? I try to be receptive to half baked ideas or ideas that are done before. But coming up, my ex CDs killed 99% of ideas to the point of meltdown. So I dunno, and also in the context of the types and potentials of briefs, should I be easing up cos, morale?
