Spark Joy: A Guide To Better Creative Work

Secrets Of A Creative Director

Join Morgan Tierney at Creative Pulse on Thursday, September 26th

Do your clients and superiors always play it safe when it comes to your creative work? They say they want breakthrough work…but inevitably only agree to the most boring or predictable ideas.

Like many creatives, Morgan Tierney came into this industry eager to work on big ideas. However, she found that the ideas she was most excited about were the ones that never got approved.

Luckily, Morgan found a way to consistently foster more trust with her clients and impress them along her journey as a creative copywriter.

By learning to find joy in the small ideas, joy in a clever headline, and joy in incremental improvements, she propelled her career. In just six years at Rethink, she went from intern to Managing Partner.

On Sept 26, Morgan will lead a conversation on how junior and senior creatives can win with their biggest and wildest ideas.

Freelancers, agency creatives, and industry leaders can attend this Talk + Social to discover:

  • How to disarm a nervous client by giving them exactly what they asked for, then showing them something better.
  • How to “spark joy” by setting expectations and then breaking them.
  • How to use “smile lines” as a way to make writing fun.

Join us at Elevator Strategy for tasty beverages and pizza — and discover how to set your creative bar higher.
