Hey Mr. Bartender…

John Condon, Leo Burnett’s new chief creative officer recently spoke with Adweek. See the Jan. 23rd print edition.

Q. How do you get past a creative block?
A. I go for a walk. And if that doesn’t doesn’t work, I can flush it out with scotch.

I’m a bourbon man myself, but I appreciate a leader with Condon’s candor.

About David Burn

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. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am now head of brand strategy and creative direction at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
