Advertising: A Team Sport

Hi again. It has been brought to my attention that I was recently referred to as an “arts and crafts people” by Curiosity’s other intern, Ariel. She is also of the opinion that the account side of advertising is better than the creative side.

I would never perpetuate an artificial divide in the work we do here at Curiosity. Advertising is a team effort, and I won’t dignify Ariel’s remarks with a response (except in parenthesis, where it doesn’t count: The creative work is way more fun).

On a day-to-day basis, the creative team here is writing, drawing, brainstorming, and cultivating earth-shattering nuggets of 24-carat creative gold. Of course it is then smelted into great advertising. Clients would probably dislike receiving their product in nugget form.
On a more irrelevant note: A man riding an imaginary horse sang profanity to me this morning. He was exiting a bank. Ah, Cincinnati.

Wisdom by Warren:
They say, “Nice guys finish last.” But that doesn’t mean jerks finish first. Fast people do.
