    From Creative to Planning From Creative to Planning Presentation Transcript

    • A PLANNER FOR 90 DAYS. a copywriter for 13 years. Saturday, July 3, 2010
    • WHAT I’VE LEARNED: Saturday, July 3, 2010
    • business media THE CREATIVE DEPARTMENT. (from the creative dept. we have a limited view of a client’s overall business situation. and of the broader media landscape.) Saturday, July 3, 2010
    • problems solutions THE CREATIVE DEPARTMENT. (creatives see things through the peephole of the creative brief. the world of possible solutions is broader than we know.) Saturday, July 3, 2010
    • THE CREATIVE TEAM. (it’s a great place to play, and obsess over our sandcastles.) Saturday, July 3, 2010
    • BRAND PLANNING. (but here, we’re deciding if a sandbox is even the thing.) Saturday, July 3, 2010
    • FEWER BOUNDARIES. Saturday, July 3, 2010
    • BRAND PLANNING IS AS CREATIVE AS CREATIVE. Saturday, July 3, 2010
    • WHY? WHAT’S CHANGED? Saturday, July 3, 2010
    • WE USED TO MAKE now we make: (agencies don’t just make artful things, now we make useful things.) Saturday, July 3, 2010
    • DRAWINGS TOOLS SENTENCES “NARRATIVES” JOKES JOKES Saturday, July 3, 2010
    • DON’T WORRY. some things remain the same. Saturday, July 3, 2010
    • STILL A HUGE CHASM between what creatives like and what the world likes. (this isn’t bad. it’s tension between fringe culture and mass culture. it makes adv. interesting. Saturday, July 3, 2010
    • I’VE LEARNED there are planners who come from research planners who come from media and “other.” Saturday, July 3, 2010
    • I USE THE FORCE. (translation: a combination of bullsh*t, and common sense.) Saturday, July 3, 2010
    • i often say to myself, “IF I OWNED THIS PLACE” i’d blah blah blah. and then i go do that. (that’s much harder to do from the creative department.) Saturday, July 3, 2010
    • i’ve found RESEARCH I LIKE: harvard business review ibm’s research department (IBV) specialist sources (i.e. inside facebook) case study anecdotes slideshares from other planners Saturday, July 3, 2010
    • (that’s right. i am stealing your sh*t.) (planning is a community. creative is not. i hope to offer thinking you can steal back.) Saturday, July 3, 2010
    • RESEARCH I DON’T: mintel media-sourced/media-biased correlational (i.e., everything) Saturday, July 3, 2010
    • SOME THINGS I’VE NOTICED: Saturday, July 3, 2010
    • MEETINGS as a creative as a planner per week * Graphs represent a general feeling, and are only loosely based on any sort of “real” numbers. N = 1. Saturday, July 3, 2010
    • MEETINGS as a creative as a planner stuff i have to bring * Graphs represent a general feeling, and are only loosely based on any sort of “real” numbers. N = 1. Saturday, July 3, 2010
    • (planners love infographs.) Saturday, July 3, 2010
    • EVERYONE HAS OPINIONS. but more people nod when it comes from a “planner.” Saturday, July 3, 2010
    • IT HELPS TO BE CURIOUS. you can’t teach that. Saturday, July 3, 2010
    • IT HELPS TO BE WEIRD. but not too weird. (i.e., have a unique outlook, but be presentable.) Saturday, July 3, 2010
    • I GOT A BOOST. griffin farley gave me his old notes, and a shot of confidence. (metaphor) Saturday, July 3, 2010
    • MY FIRST 90 DAYS: $400k in new billings re-wrote our creative brief got creative and media talking more cold-called our Atlanta office a lot brokered peace b/t internal departments Saturday, July 3, 2010
    • OFF THE CLOCK: recorded a CD of original music wrote an award-winning short film had a million-dollar new business idea drank too much slept a lot better Saturday, July 3, 2010
    • MY CAREER expected trajectory awesomeness by month * Graphs represent a general feeling, and are only loosely based on any sort of “real” numbers. N = 1. Saturday, July 3, 2010
    • (that last slide was a joke. i don’t expect my career to tank. i just have no expectations.) Saturday, July 3, 2010
