A Creative Director of mine said this about advertising: “Shit, it beats loading trucks.” No disrespect to people who load trucks, but for my weak and frail state of being it would be no good for me.
For every time a client shoots down a concept.
For every time a brand that you pitch doesn’t pick you then steals your idea.
For every super late night with nothing to show for it.
For every stereotypical bit of shitty feedback.
For every account person who says “the ad is approved” and follows it with “but we have changes.”
For every moment of writers block.
For every dead end “busy” project.
This shit sure beats loading trucks.
