A fascinating process of 12 phases shows what 77 Top–Creatives have in common in their work, illustrated by numerous original quotations from interviews with e.g., John Hegarty, Dan Wieden or Jeff Goodby. Almost 200 Practical Tips show Creatives, Copywriters, Art Directors, Account Managers and Marketeers how to steer, evaluate and manage the energy of the idea confidently throughout the Creative Process. The Question is not " Who is Creative?" But " How Can you be more creative, faster, more precise and with even more ease?"
Here, you will experience thought and work processes that Top–Creatives use to win Cannes–Lions and Effectiveness Awards for their clients and their brands. Have fun!
