“Pit a grandmaster chess player against a computer, and the computer will win every time. Pair a grandmaster with a computer and the pair will beat a computer every time.”
Our Co-Founder, Alex Bogusky, made that statement recently while explaining how the advertising industry is changing. In his opinion, folks like him (creative directors) can no longer get away with saying, “Just trust me. I’ve done this before, and I've got a good feeling about this campaign,” to their clients without anything to back it up.
That’s a huge deal given that Alex led his agency CP+B to over a billion dollars in annual revenue, 1,000 employees, and more awards than any other agency in the history of advertising which won him the honor, Creative Director Of The Decade in 2010 - all by trusting his gut.
Alex’s point. In the digital age, testing needs to move up in the creative process to catch problems earlier, support better choices, and increase the outcomes for clients.
