Regular readers of this blog will know that we here at the escape pod are huge fans of Dave Trott. For many reasons. Not least of which is that the man is a veritable fountain of common sense and wisdom. Dave has seen and done it all many times over. Yet he remains a vital and relentlessly analytical force of nature. His work was one of the things that made me want to be in advertising. Dave is a populist. His work has hit the pop culture bullseye again and again and again. And again.
And his blog has become a huge hit for all the reasons listed above. Dave speaks from decades of experience but remains youthfully curious.
So his first book, CREATIVE MISCHIEF, can only be a hit. I can’t wait to get my copy. And I strongly urge anyone in the advertising or marketing industries to grab a copy. And steal his ideas and opinions wholesale. Because that’s exactly what Dave would do if he was you. The saying “talent imitates, genius steals” applies to Dave in spades. He’s a true pirate!
PS. We would like to point out that we at The Escape Pod had this idea ages ago!
