This Is Very Cool

So in Jett’s class they each sat in front of a white board, then their classmates wrote something that described that person to them. Super cool.

Congrats on the awards!

Titles

I've always kinda thought titles at ad/marketing/design agencies were dumb. And I was reminded of that today.

I got a linked in request. Yes it is truly the most pointless site in the world, but I still felt compelled to view this persons profile and accept their request.

After I accepted it showed me other people I MAY KNOW.

That's when as I scrolled through it seemed like every 3rd person was a Creative Director.

I know that part of it is many potential people it might serve up that I know are old and been in the industry a long time like myself. But it really does seem that the title of CD means close to nothing these days. Along with other countless title that include the word director or the letters VP.

I hear the argument that it's the clients who want to hear important titles of the people who are on their business. But is that true? Because I can recall a meeting I was in at Coca-Cola where the Global Executive Creative Director was there, and the client asked them what that even meant.

I think titles hold people from their fullest potential. It keeps people to a chain of command rather than speaking up, taking chances, taking charge when they should.

And then add on top of this that titles are not the same across the board from agency to agency. You might be a SR. AD one place and and CD someplace else, but do the exact same thing.

And made up title are even worse. They never are anything other than cheesy. So if you are a chief ideas officer, you have an idiotic title.

Titles are dumb. I would say just go to titles that explain what you do:
Creative  art or copy
Client service
Production
Etc.

Thoughts?

I'd rather swim all day

Seinfeld

Movie Review

Mad Max Fury Road-

This movie was 100% awesome. I loved everything about it. This is a must see on the big screen. We want to go see it on Imax, since we saw it on a normal screen. The world this movie creates, from the characters to the cars to the places  is absolutely amazing.

That 80% of the stunts were done practical, not with CGI is fantastic.

I hope this isn’t forgotten at Oscar time for visual effects, costumes, cinematography.

See this movie.

Trivia:
According to George Miller the film's storyboard was made even before the screenplay. The reason behind that was because Miller envisioned the film as a continuous chase, with little dialogue and focusing on the visuals. The storyboard was made with the collaboration of five artists and had about 3,500 panels.
