i love a good problem
I start my days with them, by battling the NY Times Mini. I end my days with them, by unwinding with a post-apocalyptic flick.* And I spent most of my childhood being a problem, though my Mom thinks I turned out alright.
We can all learn from our problems. What we make of them tells us what we value and what we're willing to do– to turn a bad thing, good. As a strategist, making ads, products, or experiences is about turning the bad into bold, brilliant, and badass brand behavior.
