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.
