The Monday Morning WHIP // 112

We’ve got some extra things to add onto Stan’s (http://branddna NULL.blogspot WHIP this week. 1 (http://www NULL.whirlwindprint, 2 (http://www NULL.australiaprinting, & 3 (http://eplot NULL.htm?gclid=CNuRyLX7uqcCFQT1bwodN0UoXA).

When I was a young wannabe creative hawking my folio around, Creative Directors would always ask me if I had a business card after seeing me.

And of course I didn’t have one.

Fast forward a few too many years, and it is now me who asks the young wannabes if they have a business card.

And guess what – hardly any of them do.

Given we are in the brand building business, you need to think of yourself as a brand.

Then ask yourself how you can get that brand onto a Creative Director’s shopping list.

Now I’m not saying a business card is the secret to success. But it sure makes you look focussed and organised.

Plus it gives the CD something to add to his Rolodex.

Which is always the first port of call when a need arises for a talented young freelancer.
