Justin “Scrappers” Morrison may be the most all-encompassing designer around — his work traverses everything from magazine covers to product design to ads. Companies like Wieden + Kennedy, Travel Oregon, Nike, MTV, Warner Brothers have all reaped the rewards of his boundary pushing ways. (If you missed the Hump! promo video, well… don’t miss it). According to Scrappers, “Good ads elevate the human conversation. Good ads remind me to go out there and live life to the fullest before it’s gone. Most ads remind me that there are new snack options at the store.”
Join the lucky few who will peek into the place where those good ads and great ideas begin. In this conversation, Scrappers will talk about how he sets out on each new creative project like a journey into uncharted territory. Among the topics he’ll share:
Get Naked — Be honest, be sensitive, and never hold back.
Be a Human Pocket Knife — Do everything and be prepared.
Never Polish Turds — Work with good ideas not decorations.
Robin Hood was Right — Outlaw thinkers are free.
Be a Folk Artist — Think genuinely crazy thoughts, and tell the truth as only you can say it.
