A great partnership is key in producing great work. To use Luke Sullivan's old adage--1 + 1 = 3.
I'm curious as to how everyone works at the different ad schools across the country. Do you sit down and do strategy for one meeting, then meet again and concept executions at another meeting? Do you try and bang out as much as humanly possible in one meeting?
I know at Brainco, most students are so busy with other projects, it limits students' ability to sit down for really long hours at a time and get a whole lot of work done. We usually will meet between 2 and 3 times a week--sometimes get executional stuff done separately, sometimes everything together, but always come up with strategy together.
