Following the lead of our Egotist brethren, we sent a missive to the creatives of the area and asked them to share with us, briefly, the ideals that guide their creative work. Here's what they said.
If you want your words included, email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
Joey Early, Early & Co.: "Creativity is simple, don't make it complex. Eliminate distractions, edit out the excess, always simplify. "
Lessing-Flynn's worker bees:
Tom Flynn, President: "Great creative combined with smart strategy solves problems, grows businesses and changes the way people think."
Joe Winn, Creative Lead: "We are passionate about telling stories and getting results for our clients. Our creative aims to present compelling and authentic narratives that inform, influence and motivate people to take action."
Adam Feller, Avidity Creative: "Creativity is powerful. Don't create what has already been done. People remember things that are different. Think different. Be different."
Linley Bruess, Happy Medium: "Constantly pushing the envelope without ever losing site of great design principles and even more so, the client's goals."
Andy Stoll, Seed Here Studio: "Creativity is the convergence of diverse elements, thus the wider array of things I am exposed to, the greater my creative output."
Meanz Chan: "Create as often and as much as you can. Do not compare yourselves to others, and learn."
Ashleigh Brady, AB Positive Design: "Don't put anything out there that doesn't expose a high level of passion and dedication to the chosen medium."
Ryan Young, ABC Sign & Display: "Start drawing and keep drawing. Don't get too crazy with gradients. Keep your nose clean."
