WHERE DO NEW IDEAS COME FROM?
There's a lot of mumbo-jumbo attached to the process of finding a new idea. It's not really all that mysterious, because the simplest way to solve a problem is to borrow someone else's successful idea and adapt it for your purposes. As Thomas Edison said, "Your idea needs to be original only in its adaptation to the problem you are currently working on." This session identifies three basic fallacies in the creative process, and then explores six steps for making the most of existing ideas.

CAPITALIZING ON THE CREATIVE CANVAS
With the ever-evolving digital canvas, Yahoo!, in partnership with Innerscope Research, used cutting edge research techniques to understand what engages consumers most effectively and how to best capitalize on larger, innovative ad units, in the study "Capitalizing on the Creative Canvas".

By using eye-tracking and biometric measures, this new study discovered how ads that properly capitalize on new digital creative canvases resonate emotionally with consumers and help marketers achieve their objectives. It is becoming vital to uncover creative best practices with new ad formats, as digital advertising continues to evolve, and there is a shift towards bigger and more dynamic ad units. Yahoo! looked at how consumers respond at a non-conscious level to specific elements within their innovative expanded digital canvas, the Login Page Takeover ad, and emerged with five creative best practices for how advertisers can leverage larger online ad units to achieve their marketing goals.

SEATTLE'S BEST COFFEE GETS CREATIVE WITH SOCIAL MEDIA
Seattle's Best Coffee set out to pioneer a better, easier way to pick your perfect cup of coffee - the new Level System. From light, bright Level 1 to the bold intensity of Level 5, there's an expertly blended Level for everyone. The brand needed a big idea to help tell the story of the five Levels, build their Facebook community and drive product trial. A creative solution was developed by Zeno Group and Creature who brought in Second City Communications - the world's premier comedy club/theatre and school of improvisation - to bring the idea to life. Together, they planned a twenty-four hour, live-streaming improv show on Facebook to make custom content for and deliver coffee to fans. This unique, interactive experience generated immediate results. In just twenty-four hours, more than 100,000 new fans joined the community and 40,000 custom coffee samples were delivered to participants. Hear the compelling case study delivered in a fun and interactive presentation.

THE EIGHT HABITS OF HIGHLY CREATIVE MARKETERS
How can marketers create great work? The question itself brings to mind timeworn platitudes about thinking outside the box and taking risks. And while these clichés have always contained an element of truth, the need for novel solutions and risk tolerance has never been greater. In a world of social media and real-time public opinion, many effective creative solutions are high-stakes wagers. Talking to some marketers and agency executives about what it takes to do innovative, effective work, some principles came up again and again. This session take you through the principles, as well as some of the best work that illustrates these lessons in action.

HOW DREAMWORKS MARRIES CREATIVITY AND TECHNOLOGY TO DRIVE SUCCESS
The marriage of technology and creativity have long been a legacy at DreamWorks Animation, and is now becoming the Holy Grail among many leading companies, in Hollywood and beyond.

This is a relationship that will only continue to grow in importance over time, but will play an even more critical role in a company's strategic vision.  In this session, DreamWorks will have a discussion with the CMO Network Editor at Forbes on the importance of synergies between these roles in the C-suite, providing examples of the evolution of the marketing function from the 'Shrek' franchise and 'Monsters Vs. Aliens' to 'How to Train Your Dragon' and 'Puss in Boots,' directly linking the successes to the long-term business performance of the company.
