Today, clients want more from advertising than attention - they’re after measurable results in sales and market share.
This new imperative changes the perspective and approach for creativity, the fuel of marketing, and leads creatives to seek a new level of inspiration.
How do they go about it? We asked five internationally-spread creative leaders from the Worldwide Partners global network of independent agencies how they prime themselves and their teams to answer these new demands and produce commerce-grade creative.
In this film, we dig into the processes, mindsets and styles of these five creatives - with seven Cannes Lions among them - and ask:
- How they find creative inspiration
- How they get beyond the brief
- And, crucially, how they create brand impact within the new commercial imperative
