Louisville’s Mark Rosenthal, Creative Director at Creative Alliance, graciously shared documents relevant to this assignment from his real-world work files and personal stashof teaching materials. In addition to the Army example you’ll be modeling to write your own creative brief, be sure to review the Chix and Kentucky Energy Cooperative example she provided. This folder also contains Mark’s creative brief teaching tool with descriptors and a separate creative brief template to get you started.
Here are a few additional comments from Mark:
“As a creative person, I hate over-thought, over-written creative briefs. So Istress, write it and re-write it. And rewrite it. And rewrite it until the main message is prioritized, succinct and relevant (and compelling if possible). Keep it brief! If I’m being asked to produce a print ad, a TV spot, an outdoor board or a web-banner, there’s only so much time or space for an idea and critical information. Consumers rarely if ever read body copy in an ad. It’s a fact. We have a millisecond to make a connection with our target so it better be worth their time or they’ll pass on you.”
