Mutual respect is the key in making the in-house/outside agency relationship work. Using metrics as a tool for business conversations, strategic thinking can come from both the in-house creative team and the outside agency. Both teams share a common goal: to do great work for one’s company/client. Yet, the relationship-building process can be challenging and complex at times.
InSource assembled a panel of eight distinguished thought leaders to discuss their experiences and insights on best practices for managing the in-house/outside agency relationship. This panel discussion was held on November 14, 2013, in New York City. Facilitated by Andy Brenits, President of InSource and Creative Services Leader at APS, this panel discussion featured Gail Bichler (Art Director, New York Times Magazine), Ken Carbone (Founding Partner & Chief Creative Director, CSA Carbone Smolan Agency), Andy Epstein (Team Lead, The BOSS Group at Merck), Hilary Greenbaum (Director of Graphic Design, Whitney Museum of American Art), Randy Hunt (Creative Director, Etsy), Michael Lee (Forbes Contributor on the marketing environment and founder of Madam), Gael Towey (Creative Director, Gael Towey & Co.; formerly of Martha Stewart Living), and Thomas Wright (Director of Advertising and Design, Neenah Paper).
