Goodby's Gareth Kay suggests different ways to think about modern communication strategies.

A recent post by Gareth Kay (of Goodby's Brand Strategy discipline) turned our attention to a presentation he made at Boulder Digital Works on crafting a creative brief for the post-digital age. Kay begins by taking a (somehow comical) look at creative brief templates of yore (1992), which mostly all addressed a very common set of elements: a problem to be solved by advertising, consumers to ‘target', a message to tell them, reasons to believe, and tone of voice.

Needless to say that there is a continually expanding set of technology devices and platforms – and respective user interfaces – available in our current culture: from mobile to social media, to desktop and mobile video and others. Their impact includes facilitating a more participatory culture, making us more social,  contributing to a more fragmented media landscape and leaving us ‘always on' and conscious/communicative of our location; these factors need to be considered within an informed creative brief.
