15. Tips from Rob Baird

1 Nov

Rob Baird, art director for Mother in New York, visited our group of budding creative strategists last week and left us with some tips for success in this industry:

  1. Put stock in the people you talk to.
  2. The fun and culture leads up to the work on the walls.
  3. There are great opportunities in any size agency.
  4. Don’t worry about the name on the door.
  5. The best agencies are creative and strategic.
  6. We wouldn’t be where we are today if it wasn’t for strategy.
  7. Your work is what will get you a second look, but it’s your personality that will keep you around.
  8. Everyone is a maker.
  9. Check your self — would you buy that?
  10. Solve a problem in an interesting way.
  11. “Work hard & be nice to people.” – Anthony Burrill
