For the latest MediaCat Magazine podcast our Editor Mike Piggott spoke to Jade Tomlin. Jade is Group Creative Director at AKQA, previously Creative Director at Tribal Worldwide London. She was one of Campaign’s Faces to Watch in 2009, one of Campaign and Creative Equals ‘30 future female leaders’ in 2017, and one of The Dots ‘100 trailblazers for women and non-binary talent’ in 2020.
They discussed side quests, and how much of life and work goes according to plan, specifically within the creative marketing industry. They discussed having a main goal versus getting bogged down in a plan, the impact of parenthood and covid on planning, how side quests can grow in interesting ways, and Jade’s future side quest plans.
