Guiding principles
Maya Angelou once said: “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.”
In PR, storytelling is important to our strategies, with creativity at the heart of it. We’re often tasked by our clients to generate fresh concepts for our story angles and campaign ideas so often we can have creative burnouts.
It’s important to take a step back, a few deep breaths and remember that everyone is creative and that we all have our inner creatives, we just need to learn how to unlock and tap into it more often.
