SOME THOUGHTS ON MY CREATIVE PROCESS

I've wrestled some ideas in a couple blog posts:

THEMES I RETURN TO

Brand as mentor. Be helpful. People don't care about you. Educate. Tell stories. Copy is revealed more than created. The "Made to Stick" principles are good ones: simple, unexpected, concrete, credible, emotional, story.

SOME OF MY INFLUENCES

Joe Ranft (and improv). Howard Gossage. Seth Godin. Hayao Miyazaki. Steven Pressfield. Mary Oliver. Roger Ebert.
