Diablogue is offering up a saucy bit from Jonathan Kneebone of the Glue Society.
When someone with vague creative aspirations could do anything with their time and energy, why the hell work in advertising?
After all, you could be writing a novel or movie, a TV drama or comedy show.
You could be directing a documentary, photographing nudes or paiting landscapes.
You could be being creative rather than talking about creativity all day.
Before you get too upset, Kneebone goes on to say you can do all these things and work in advertising today. He encourages creatives to not just sit there watching the walls crumble around them, but rather to reinvent themselves and the business in the process. In other words, paint the proverbial landscape and get brands to sponsor the effort.
