I didn’t go to a portfolio school, graduated college with a pitiful portfolio, and have always considered my creative talent to be average. But despite all that, I was lucky enough to eventually spend 16 years at W+K, where I learned from the best creatives in the world how to do the best work of my life.
Working as a creative, creative director, and eventually ECD of W+K Portland, I was able to witness the habits, mindsets, and techniques of the best creatives in the world. I learned that gobs of raw talent was not critical for success (lucky for me), and in fact, excessive talent is often a curse. What separates the creative legends from the rest are things that anyone can learn.
My mission is to help as many creatives as possible do the best work of their lives. So I hope you'll watch for my next email, where I’ll begin to share some of the secrets and techniques of the world’s best creatives.
And if you really want to jumpstart your career in 2023, apply for my 8-week coaching & mentorship program, Creative Megamachine:
“Taking Creative Megamachine with Jason Bagley is like learning to shoot 3’s with Steph Curry or baking scones with Paul Hollywood. You’re getting exposure (and learning the secrets) from a GOAT. Jason will deconstruct award-winning work, break down his process and help you be the best version of your creative self.…do whatever you need to do to have this experience.
