Steve McNamara How to create memorable brand characters.

Some of the world’s most effective advertising campaigns have been built on brand characters.

In the U.S. you’ve seen the Geico Gecko as well as his competitor, a woman named “Flo” who works for Progressive insurance.

Internationally, Ronald McDonald and the Michelin Tire Man trigger instant recognition.

Parallel Action – How you move

Think about what happens when you work in a linear fashion – you wait right? Most process models are designed so that “B” can’t start until “A” is finished. This makes getting from A to Z time consuming, not to mention – it leaves no room for exploration, experimentation and failure. Wait, failure? Yes. Failures in a process are necessary for evolving an idea and even starting over if needed. “Parallel action” allows for these steps to occur and is the difference between work that is good or wor… Continue

SHOW UP – Working/living as a creative person

Below is the outline and notes from a speaking engagement that I did at a local art college, Nossi College of Art, Nashville TN. I don’t think students get to hear any of this information. Of course this is very brief, but the hour that I spoke covers this in more detail. I just wanted to share this outline. Good stuff for creatives fresh or not, I coach my creative team on these things all the time. The first thing you have to do is… Give a shit. This attitude will be th… Continue

Can Quality Creative Really be Crowdsourced?

Crowdsourcing creative is fast becoming a part of the design marketplace.

Please don’t hire Jack Goldenberg to work miracles at your agency.

Well, Jack Goldenberg is out of Bristol-Myers after two years of blowing the doors off the numbers for cancer drugs, wound-healing gels and who-knows what else. (See below for the real story.) Jack, darlin’, I figure you’d think it’s a good idea if I remind all our Gabber friends why it’s imperative we get you back in a big agency pronto. Or leading the creative efforts in-house at a corporation. And you would be the perfect person to double the size of a small agency – or save that huge accou… Continue

Your saliva is also important!

To carry on with the ‘revolutionary’ topics that I started yesterday, I let you one campaign that I have seen in the last days and I like it. That is the campaign of Saatchi & Saatchi Southeast Asia Regional from Bangkok, Thailand, to Amnesty International. Two female art directors, Brandy Vu and Linda Pham, have participated in it.
