Courtney Richardson Is Bringing Some Necessary Zag to the Industry

Our chat with the Droga5 creative director on this week's #BlackTea

On today’s episode of #BlackTea, we chat with Courtney Richardson, creative director at Droga5, about her journey from watching her uncle make iconic music videos, to becoming an award-winning creative director on a mission to push the culture forward. She speaks on the power of having a team made up of people with diverse career paths and how this creates a unique opportunity to touch people. Courtney talks about finding the purpose within every client brief and how this spark leads to great work. She also shares how being the number one cheerleader of your team leads to a more collaborative space. Enjoy the chat with Courtney.
