Scott Oakley from Denver writes,
“i am working with a creative director who is highly passive aggressive. an art director and i were working on a campaign for a client that wasn’t getting much love. we never got a brief. we were never given a clear direction. now, it turns out that there is a second team working on the account. we know this because my guy ran into the other team at the agency…otherwise we wouldn’t have known at all and just been left to twist in the wind. we’ve been over-communicating…and we’ve been trying to get some sort of constructive feedback to no avail.
what the hell do we do on this one?”
What a quandary, Scott. First off, if I were you, I’d drown my CD in a cauldron of rice pudding. But you seem sane, so I’ll go another route. Obviously the creative director is being blackmailed by the other team because they caught him outside a plushies and furries convention. On your lunch break tomorrow, go rent a raccoon costume and then saunter by his office in it. I guarantee you’ll be back on the campaign in no time.
