Mother CCO Joe Staples

What is an idea? Something that either helps you experience the world better or understand it better. That’s according to Joe Staples, chief creative officer at independent agency Mother. As one of the founding members of Mother’s LA office, Staples came to the office with “mise en place” – a French cooking term for having all of your ingredients on the table — from Mother’s reputation and history for edgy and out-of-the-box thinking — and the opportunity to put it together in a fresh way.Staples, who was diagnosed with dyslexia and ADHD as an adult, has a keen understanding of how to get the best out of neurodivergent talent, which are predominant in creative fields.He also chats about his time at Wieden+Kennedy, his study of jiu-jitsu and his favorite piece of creative that he’s seen recently — a simple window display from Hermès.  campaig

Lots of change has marked the last two years at Dentsu. A reevaluation of operations in 2022 kicked off a restructuring at the Japanese parent company that saw it eliminate the role of the international chief executive, then held by Wendy Clark, the departure of several other executives, including former U.S. CEO Paulo Fogaca and former global chief creative officer Fred Lavron, and the dissolution of creative agencies DentsuMB, 360i and Isobar. Since then, the network has brought together its two subsidiaries, Dentsu International and Dentsu Japan, as one operation.

Actor or ally? How to avoid performative advocacy, in partnership with Assembly

Finding a better way to grow in a downturn, in partnership with Wavemaker

The Wavemaker team presented research into how and where US consumers are feeling the pinch, which categories are most affected and what they want to see from brands. Then followed by a panel discussion, chaired by Jess Heygate, Technology Editor at Campaign US. In times of uncertainty, it’s common for brands to slash marketing budgets to save the bottom line. In pressured environments, many default to short term-thinking — deprioritizing sustainability initiatives or neglecting diverse audiences from their communications. But brands that do so, do so at their peril. Previous recessions have taught us that marketing rewards those who maintain their spend, and that those who stand by their values, support vulnerable communities and invest in meaningful societal and environmental change are rewarded with exceptional growth.

Steve discusses the power of humor in business, and how the tenets of humor change perspectives on leadership styles and open participants’ minds to creative ways of thinking and engaging.

Campaign Chemistry: Republica Havas’ Jorge Plasencia and Luis Casamayor

Jorge Plasencia and Luis Casamayor started Republica as an independent, full-service shop in Miami back in 2006. The vision was to create an agency that spoke to the new American demographic — one that at the time was already rapidly changing. Fast forward to 2022, and that foresight has led the full-service agency to work with brands from Walmart to Toyota as it adds nuance and context to its multicultural efforts while the U.S quickly becomes a minority-majority country. In this episode, Plasencia and Casamayor talk about this journey, as well as how Republica is embracing DE&I in its own organization. We also chat about how Miami is becoming a hub for tech and creative talent.Tune into this episode here now, and subscribe to Campaign Chemistry wherever you get your podcasts.

Last year, Klarna made its big debut in the U.S. market in the most American way possible: during the Super Bowl. Since then, it’s been steadily growing its presence here, most recently rolling out a physical card and inking a partnership with the Chicago Bulls.For chief marketing officer David Sandstrom, Klarna has an opportunity to become a super shopping app, where content, commerce and influencer marketing coalesce.
