Creative Directors Who Suck

2 May

We’re secretly interviewing for a new Creative Director – it’s posted as “company confidential”. But I really don’t think we need a new one. Matt is very busy thinking up the next big idea (read: talking on his cell in the lobby) so he just doesn’t have time to lead the team on client creative. He’s so misunderstood. I mean, don’t all clients love work that is actually just like the templates that come packaged with Illustrator?

I found this agency on The Daily SlurpSecond Story Interactive. Love that their site is not typically uber-modern, like most interactive shops. The intro music sounds like the beginning of a fairy tale, which is exactly like I imagine a biographical movie about me beginning. Seems most of their clients are museums – the list looks like The History Channel on acid.  You’ll like them – I do.

    Hey Alexandra:

    If they can Matt. Tell him to call me. We can use some help.

    Hey Alexandra, you gotta be kidding. A creative director who hangs out in the lobby and doesn’t lead sure beats a manipulative CD who sets one person against another, fires people with long awards track records because they might be perceived as better than him, and plays politics bigtime.

    Anyway, sometimes the best creative directors are the ones who didn’t “fix” ideas that weren’t broken.

    Count your blessings.

    Crankily yours,

    Second Story has long been a favorite shop of mine. Since about 1999. If I lived in Portland I would be camped out on their doorstep begging for a job.
