What other creative outlets do you have outside of your job? Not necessarily side hustles, might just be something you do just for fun or creative nourishment?

I don’t know if this qualifies as “creative,” but training martial arts is an excellent outlet for me. Not only does it feel great to physically exert yourself, but also has made me into a more disciplined person

Additional Posts in Creatives

Starting to see posts where people congratulate themselves for OOPS I MEAN are humbled by awards they won. D&AD and what not. And this is weird, but it just hit me...does it make any difference to anyone?

Seriously, can anyone take the affirmative and tell me who notices...or talks about...or benefits from awards anymore from a business perspective? Even the obvious one—the prospect of creatives scoring their next job off of them—seems iffy these days.

If the applicant’s portfolio is respectable to Nike, Apple, & Airbnb, why would they want to work for your company? It’s job postings like this that stop creatives from even applying. Simply because prior to submitting your name for consideration, you know the expectations are unrealistic. Even if you are respected by true industry leaders, the job posters and hiring team do not value the creativity they are asking for. What they really want is “AI” style of creativity + devoted loyalty.
