Believe in Your Purpose
My advice to my fellow creatives would be to keep believing in their purpose, be positive and focus on the best work of their lives now, more than ever. A bright spark, an idea may bring the world the positivity it needs. One thing the pandemic has taught me is to not take anything for granted. In the face of uncertainty, it is easy to lose mental ground... But if the love for your craft, your ideas, your passion for whatever you love creating is certain, then there is hope. The pandemic will eventually fade, but your passion will remain. So, taking each day as it comes and doing our best is one good way to look at it.
As for studios, being empathetic towards their employees and partners, being open to the changing needs of clients and pushing for innovation with a focus on business effectiveness to navigate the new norms would be imperative. Another key is to curate brand experiences for the customer, as normal shifts fresh ideas on compelling brand experiences that bring customer delight despite the constraints and allow brands to stand out and differentiate.
