How do creatives — wherever in the world — address the new client imperative to produce ideas that do more than get noticed?

Today, clients want more from advertising than attention — they’re after measurable results in sales and market share. 

This new imperative changes the perspective and approach for creativity, the fuel of marketing, and leads creatives to seek a new level of inspiration. 

How do they go about it? We asked five internationally-spread creative leaders from the Worldwide Partners global network of independent agencies how they prime themselves and their teams to answer these new demands and produce commerce-grade creative.

In this film, we dig into the processes, mindsets and styles of these five creatives — with seven Cannes Lions among them — and ask:

  • How they find creative inspiration
  • How they get beyond the brief
  • And, crucially, how they create brand impact within the new commercial imperative
