Episode 13: Help People Hustle Less with Creative Director Rosie Yakob

Anti Hustle Hustle Club

Today’s guest is Rosie Yakob, an award-winning strategist, creative director, writer, and consultant.Rosie began her career developing non-traditional ways for brands to connect with fans, casually working with the likes of hip hop moguls Jay Z and Steve Stoute.In 2013, she quit her job to travel the world and ‘accidentally’ co-founded Genius Steals, a nomadic creative consultancy which helps brands, agencies and rebels find their ‘awesome’, through new communication ideas, product concepts and ways of thinking. But where do these new ways of thinking come from? Rosie believes that nothing can come from nothing – but copying is lazy. So she looks at the best that came before and combines those elements into new solutions – we picture her doing so barefoot beach walking, while mulling over a glass of her favourite red wine. You'll find Rosie on Twitter here: https://twitter.com/rosieyakob?lang=csFind out more about Genius Steals here: http://geniussteals.co/Subscribe to the podcast to enjoy our incredible lineup of interviews about hustle culture, work, success and happiness. Say hi to us at instagram.com/antihustle.hustleclubIntro music by Ant Henderson soundcloud.com/antphenderson

Faris and Rosie Yakob- Global Futures

Inspiring Futures

Global nomads since 2013, Faris and Rosie Yakob are a creative and strategic duo- who have served their time as creatives and strategic thinkers with the likes of MDC, McCann, and 360i. In a conversation that covers a lot of ground, we talk about a shrinking world- one that appears ever more similar, but how you need to dig deeper to unlock local differences, the rise of creativity as a response to the growth hacking plateau, tourism and the idea that the world is getting full because everyone wants to go to the same places, trashvertising, banks making money but making brands less interesting, brand safety, the future of the agency and buying avocados.
