Starting last week, our community has been on a quest to repicture cliched concepts through the power of pictures.
We’ve asked some of the leading professionals in the creative world to show us what terms such as beauty, love, hero, fatherhood, motherhood, community and others mean to them and this is how they answered.
Rob Reilly - Global Creative Chairman, McCann Worldgroup
Over the past few years, we've seen Love more and more represented as a universal feeling that transcends communities, ethnical backgrounds or sexual orientations: we're all equals when it comes to love. The world is moving in that direction and as apostles of contemporary culture, brands understand this and use their power to spread the message. There's a desire on the part of clients to always push the agenda further, distance themselves from cliches, and get closer to what true love is.
