These posters were created by myself (copywriter), Garrett Clum (designer), and John Oney (art director) for my office in celebration of LGBTQ Pride Month and reference our founder, David Ogilvy's "8 Habits of Highly Creative People."
 
Here, these habits are looked at through the stories and lens of the LGBTQ community.
 
Each conference room in our office is named after one of these habits and the posters will replace the signs that currently hang there for the month of June.
 
“If Ogilvy is to be gorgeous, wonderful, brilliant, fabulous, magical, beautiful, big and sexy, we must first be brave, idealistic, curious, playful, candid, intuitive, free-spirited, and persistent.” – David Ogilvy
David Ogilvy on COURAGE:

"Fear is a demon that devours the soul of an agency: it diminishes the quality of our imagination, it dulls our appetite for adventure, it sucks away our youth."
David Ogilvy on IDEALISM:

"How great we become depends on the size of our dreams. Let’s dream humongous dreams, put on our overalls, go out there and build them."
David Ogilvy on CURIOSITY:

"An endless trail of ideas floats in the ether. You will only see them if you are curious. For a start, we have to ask stupid questions like a pesky 6-year-old."
David Ogilvy on being PLAYFUL:

"The man loved a good joke, especially one with some ‘wind’ in it. All our art, all our science and all our philosophy have been invented by playful people, not serious people."
David Ogilvy on CANDOR:

"We are a company of problem-solvers. Our job requires us to be brutally honest and totally dedicated to the truth."
David Ogilvy on INTUITION:

"All our finest thoughts and best ideas are not the work of the logical mind, but gifts from the unconscious."
David Ogilvy on being a FREE SPIRIT:

"Rule 1. There are no rules. Rule 2. Never forget rule one."
David Ogilvy on PERSISTENCE:

"Never give in. Never give in. Never give in. Never. Never. Never. Never."
Drinks, anyone?
