10 Minute Masterpiece
We have rules
- 1 First, do no harm.
- 2 If everyone gets out of the box, get back in.
- 3 Make the world 0.000001 percent more beautiful with everything you do.
- 4 Weird works when you do it right.
- 5 Great creative and great strategy are inseparable. We have a distrust of companies that believe you can have one without the other. Weak creative is bad strategy. Weak strategy is bad creative. Sorry for ranting.
- 6 You have a brand, like it or not. Even if it’s the nondescript guy in the corner.
- 7 Brands can change very quickly. Incrementalism is for fraidy-cats.
- 8 It’s a visual culture. It really is. :-)
- 9 All those great decisions you make along the way are felt by people who don’t notice them. That’s OK.
- 10 This rule subject to change.
