The Big Dogs Are Wobbling Like Drunkards [Time for Us Small Dogs to Sharpen Our Knives]

If you’re looking for your next creative breakthrough or if you’re in a job you hate and looking to make a change, this video from Dan Wieden of legendary Wieden + Kennedy agency in Portland is a worthy 15 min of your time. The intro is slow (a Portland love fest…) so skip in a few min if you’re watching the clock.

Here’s what’s in this video that I like:

– dan is a really likeable guy
– dan’s speech echoes my belief that creativity is the new literacy
– dan eloquently voices the idea that constraints & failures lead to creativity
– small is beautiful
– mistakes are the building blocks of knowledge

Take a look at some of the agency’s work over the years.

    Sexy lingerie when sold at wholesale rates is a very
    lucrative offer for any consumer. The same applies to slips and slip skirts – there’s not much you can do to improve
    or modify them, so they haven’t changed all
