Jed Hallam, Planner & co-founder of Love Will Save The Day & Common People.


Creatives on Speed is where Faster Ideas editor and founder Joanne Oatts talks to creative thinkers, makers and doers from all walks of life - about creativity and how they use it in their work.


This week: Jed Hallam, advertising planner & co-founder of music and culture project Love Will Save the Day, and ad industry initiative Common People.


We talk about:

  • The origins of planning and what planners actually do

  • Jed's career journey and initial impressions of the industry

  • Early inspirations, and the New York and London clubs that influenced him

  • Creating spaces where people can share their passion for music, and how that took him from DJing and events to creating Love Will Save The Day

  • Developing opportunities for people from working-class backgrounds to break into the industry through his industry initiative Common People

  • Jed's favourite creative trick to kick start the brain.
