We took the opportunity to ask Richard a couple of questions, here’s what he had to say…
What got you into the advertising industry?
I’ve always loved advertising and the creativity that goes behind it. I went to school specifically to get a degree in Advertising with the hopes and dreams that I would land a great job as a creative. After roughly 10 years of working as an in-house designer or marketing manager, I guess I finally made it.
If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
I want to get a pilots license, so learn to fly!
What’s your favorite spot in San Diego?
I’m a beer snob, so if I take the time to travel to the Stone Brewery, I’m there.
If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would you meet?
I am always overwhelmed by this question with too many possible answers. So, today I will say Ben Franklin.
What’s one of your favorite ad campaigns and why?
Volkswagen’s “Think Small” campaign by Doyle Dane Bernbach (DDB). I’m probably biased because I drove a VW Bug for 6 years as my first car, but even today I can look at those ads and only think “Brilliant!”
If you could go anywhere in the world on a two week vacation, where would you go?
I would be off to Europe. Always wanted to go, haven’t had the chance yet…off I go!
What’s the best way to spend a Sunday?
