So much of what I do is solitary in the act of creation. Once my work is completed then the collaboration with my clients begin.
On our first project with a medicine called Kynamro, I worked with Scott Sager and his team from afar, working with his colleagues located in two offices in Manhattan and in New Jersey.
In the heat of the project, we would have calls, chats and a flurry of emails all with the goal of getting the final creative materials optimized and perfected for creative excellence.
It was only after the project had long been completed did I make Scott’s acquaintance at his office in New York. To have a shared sense of accomplishment on a creative success really binds people together.
Scott is still creating compelling work in New York, but now for a different agency. I dropped by a few weeks ago and I finally did what I should have done on our first visit, which is to take his portrait.
I’m glad I did.
