While planning our new 'thing*' came across this again. Genius from David Ogilvy on the qualities of a Creative Director

  • High standards of personal ethics.
  • Big people, without pettiness.
  • Guts under pressure, resilience in defeat.
  • Brilliant brains — not safe plodders.
  • A capacity for hard work and midnight oil.
  • Charisma — charm and persuasiveness.
  • A streak of unorthodoxy — creative innovators.
  • The courage to make tough decisions.
  • Inspiring enthusiasts — with trust and gusto.
  • A sense of humor.
