How Automation Leads to Creative Confidence

It’s crunch time on a creative project. Your client needs something “ASAP” and they haven’t properly filled out the creative brief. You’re running around trying to gather all the information needed to finish the project. If that’s not enough, there’s a constant flood of daily ad-hoc requests.
