MCG’s Favorite Things…

MCG’s Favorite Things…

Have you ever thought about why you are drawn to certain brands and products? Some of us at Morris Creative sat down and made a list of our favorite things. Each list was entirely different and unique to the individual it belonged to. These things are what make us unique and give a glimpse into what makes us tick.

But why are they our favorite things? It could be one or many factors: It works well, it brings back a feeling or memory, it is an action of habit, it is the cool thing to do…. The list is endless, but there is a lot more that goes into your decision making than you are aware of. Some of them may have been in our lives since we were young, and others could be recent additions introduced to us through experiences with friends and family.

So where does this tie into being part of a Marketing and PR Agency? David Ogilvy explains the importance of believing in the products you are representing. The best campaigns are built from people who have something genuine to say about the brands they are working with. If you are truly passionate about the product, then you can create connections with the consumer, which will have flow-on effects that can lead to all kinds of wonderful opportunities. Our diverse team is made up of people with different likes and interests, which makes us a well-rounded team for our clients. Glance through the list of our favorite things and take the time to make one of your own.
