"Our Greatest Hits on Collaboration & Feedback" (Creator's Block Podcast)

Content Marketing | Creator's Block | Graphic Design

This week, Jessie-Lee, Marcella, and I are deep in the weeds with projects, so we will be back next week with a new espisode. 

However, we're not going to leave you empty-handed today. Instead, since we're all neck-deep in collaborative internal and client projects, we're going to share with you our 3 favorite episodes that have to do with the best practices around those very topics.

Collaboration. Feedback. Project management. 

The very core of what we all do every day.


Listen to the Episodes

Speaking Creative to Non-Creatives

Whether they're clients or other internal colleagues, the people we collaborate with may not always know how to clearly articulate why they do -- or don't -- like something we've created, or that they want something to change.

Having the ability to bridge these communication barriers is probably one of the most important skills marketing creative professionals can possess. This episode will help you do that.


How to Handle Feedback You Don't Agree With

We know creating to fulfill the vision of others requires collaboration, back and forth, and the humble understanding that always takes the input of many to get a creative agency project across the finish line.

There are occasions, however, where -- not out of ego, but due to experience or sometimes simply our creative gut instinct -- we don't agree with the feedback we receive from clients. How do you handle those moments?


When Creative Projects Go off the Rails

It all started so innocently. An idea. A strategy. A creative brief. A meeting to align expectations. You know you're talented, and you thought you had this project in the bag, right? You slave away, creating something magnificent from scratch to bring someone else's vision to life... or so you thought.

You send over your files, and you wait. And wait. Hrm, you should have heard something by now -- oh no. There it is. message for you with those four dreaded words: "Hey... can we talk?"

How do you get these projects back on track?

Liz lives in Annapolis, Maryland, with her husband and two dogs. She loves public radio and is also a freelance beer writer and an enthusiastic camper. Finally, she has very aggressive feelings about pineapple on pizza. (It's best not to engage her on that topic.)
