A Blog that Does its Job

My Return to the World of Creative Briefs

April 16, 2015

It’s officially official – my newest client is a real-life advertising agency. Ahh, it’s like I never even left. Except this one is a Pittsburgh/Miami shop and I don’t have an office in either city. Or, you know, a desk. But guess what I do have – creative briefs coming in hot and heavy. And…
