In a new podcast for The Lowdown – a content stream from Xeim brands including Creative Review, Marketing Week, Design Week and Econsultancy – on July 2, CR senior writer Aimée McLaughlin talked to Publicis•Poke creative director Rob Butcher and L.A. Ronayne, group creative director at Anomaly, about the challenges of making ads at the moment and what makes for a successful lockdown ad.
