I have enjoyed partnering with creative personnel for most of my working life, in advertising, design and brand development. Getting the best work in such a partnership is akin to regular mentoring, given the iterative nature of the creative process. It’s been a great two-way dialogue where facts/insights and strategy of my briefing have been imbued with inspired wizardry, by creative teams and designers, to produce outstanding and enduring visual and verbal communications. Not to mention haptic, and other sensory dimensions added to the outputs, that we occasionally experimented with.
