I wrote this thing for the D&AD recently. It's possible, indeed highly probable, that you've never heard of me and are coming from over there to see who on earth I am.
In my piece I make the point that some briefs — possibly events, possibly situations — call for a completely different response. Some rule-breaking or reinvention.
Hopefully I don't need to convince you of that point. Because there's one such brief currently live. Right now in parts of East Africa, a child is dying every six minutes as a result of famine. It's not right. There's something you and I can do about this.
