What’s in my Office Thursday: Meet a dynamic trio of Creative Interns at DDB Chicago – Dan Donahue, Colleen Keesey and Sarah Dembkowski. They decided to share some words of wisdom together, along with a group selfie – the more, the merrier!
Check out their advice below:
“If any part of you thinks your idea could be better, make it better. It could be the difference between being killed and being sold.” - Dan Donahue, Copywriter Intern @ DDB
“Make a habit of getting to school by 1 p.m. if possible everyday, especially when you think you have nothing to do. Boredom and creativity go hand in hand.” - Colleen Keesey, Art Director Intern @ DDB
“Be aggressive with your ideas. It’s easier to scale them back a few notches than try to make them more interesting. Brainstorming-wise, don’t be that guy/girl that stomps an idea into oblivion. Even if the idea seems totally bizarre, keep the ball rolling and try to find a nugget to work off. There’s nothing that kills creativity or chemistry within a group quite like someone shooting down everything. Oh, and be nice to your art director.” - Sarah Dembkowski, Copywriter Intern @ DDB
