Quote of the week
This weeks quotes are from the advertising legend John Hegarty at #GMW2014.
“Great creative people think like children; they can’t understand why you don’t want to make things better.”
“Creativity needs conflict; it needs something to react and struggle against.”
“The essence of creativity is to take some known assets and reassemble them in a way that stimulates our imagination”
“Sitting on a bean bag does not make you creative.”
“Selling stuff isn’t a science; it’s about persuasion, and that’s an art”
“A bad idea costs the same as a great idea. Don’t be limited by budgets”
“Marketing and advertising have been liberated by technology; it’s fundamental to creativity.”
“We need to reach the masses. Jesus didn’t stand on the rock and say, “I’d like to talk to 18-24 year-olds”
“One of my greatest sources of inspiration is reading things I shouldn’t read – like the @FT”
“When process overtakes innovation, the company is doomed. Worst example: procurement”
“The people who succeed are the ones who truly believe in what they do. You *have* to believe”
