Leo Burnett Dress Code Eliminates Need for Account Management

leo_burnett_dress_success.jpg

So Leo Burnett created a goofy in-house ad to announce its new dress code. It's unclear whether or not it's a joke since attempts at confirmation have...well, failed. The horror of it all is that creatives, usually exempt from any and all dress codes, are required to adhere to the code. So, no more jeans. No more black t-shirts. No more kicks. Say what? Yes, you heard right.

Leo Burnett's creative department will now be able to go to client meetings on their own without being found out by either the client or the AE they will pretend to be just to make up for all those years of being told, "The client won't go for that." And, yes. It's been confirmed a joke.

That's an AWESOME speech and one every agency person should watch monthly so as not to devolved into exactly what Leo Burnett is talking about here. Of course, the dude would have been HORRIFIED at what we wear to work these days.

I'm horrified by the stuffiness of what some people wear to work each day. Suits, ties, that kind of thing. Terrible.

What they really need to do is force them to adhere to the Steve Jobs dress code. If it worked for Apple...

More than the "new professional look,"I'm interested in the "new professional attitude." I feel that creatives usually have the "professional" attitude and everyone else with a more, well ... bull$#!% attitude.

Do they still play Leo's speech for new hires? I started my career there a long, long time ago, and his speech is the one thing about the place that I recall with any fondness.

As for the brains behind the joke: Idiots.
