daily bizcard 043: rick webb

Today’s “Daily Bizcard”, goes to Rick Webb, COO and co-founder of The Barbarian Group.

I love creative hot shops like Barbarian. To me, they’re the future of advertising… which I see less as creators of “messages”, but more more about being essential in  helping their clients think and act more creatively… which I believe will be the one of the 21st Century’s most valuable tradeskills to have.

The cartoon above is an old mantra of mine, from my advertising days. It always served me well. Rock on.

Hugh MacLeod is a genius.  Genius.

His work acknowledges the absurdity of workaday life, while also encouraging employees to respond with passion, creativity, and non-conformity...   MacLeod’s work is undeniably an improvement over the office schlock of yore. At its best, it’s more honest, and more cognizant of the entrepreneurial psyche, while still retaining some idealism.

Last year my State of the College address was 76 slides loaded with data. This year it was 14 cartoons that were substantially more memorable.

"There are only two daily newsletters that I look forward to opening and reading every time they show up to my inbox: Seth Godin's and gapingvoid."

Tony Hsieh
CEO, Zappos

In moments of indecision I glance at the wall [to Hugh's work] for guidance.
