Guest: Creative Director, DDB Chicago - Nathan Monteith
"I thoroughly enjoy my time in advertising because of three things: I'm a morning person, I'm frustratingly positive, and I get to help young creatives do something with all that unfocused fresh brain they have. The morning thing - I'm a fan of how the brain works, and I know that the logical area of the left hemisphere, likes to sleep in late. Because of this, mornings yield some of the most creative work, when you're up early enough to do it. At 6am there's no logic around to ruin the fun. The frustrating positivity - it's the only way to do this job right and not let the hills and valleys of the hits and misses throw you off your game. The young creatives - they're puppies. They keep us all young at heart."
Clients: Jeep, Kohler, Heineken, Viagra, Fiat, State Farm, Capital One, US Army
