Episode 28: Advertising In Crisis; Two Left Brains Don't Make a Right

Have you noticed commercials are starting to look the same? And chart-topping music seems to follow a similar recipe? Over the years, advertising has begun to ‘flatten’ and lose it’s sense of uniqueness and originality.

Advertising is becoming less emotional, more focused on short-term sales activation, and according to our guest, more appealing to the left brain. Orlando Wood, CIO of System1 Group and author of industry-renowned book Lemon. How the advertising brain turned sour, explains how this golden age of technology has led us to an advertising crisis (and now, advertising in a crisis).

This podcast covers everything from:

  • How advertising has fallen flat
  • The loss of long-term brand building
  • Right brain vs. Left brain and how they are affecting creativity
  • Why advertising should celebrate life in spontaneity
  • Advertising in crisis meets advertising in a crisis
