Balarin talked about how some of the brands Mother work with – which include Ikea and KFC – have responded to the pandemic, and why brilliant, relevant ideas are needed in marketing now more than ever. He also discussed the challenges his creative teams have faced making work remotely, and how working methods at agencies may be changed by the crisis in the longer term.
