Two Views On Fostering Creativity

“In order to foster creativity we should hire misfits, goad them to fight and pay them to defy convention and undermine the prevailing culture.” -Robert Sutton

“Every morning take Royal Jelly and Omega 3 oil, eat oysters and have a good sex life. Don’t care about anything, and never listen to anybody. Be free.” -Philippe Starck

About David Burn

Co-founder and editor of AdPulp. I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. I worked for seven agencies in five states before launching my own practice in 2009. Today, I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
