“Don’t take it personally. An employee resigning, a customer canceling, missing a quarterly goal; this isn’t a reflection of you personally. It’s just business. Alternatively, when things are going great, don’t let it go to your head. As a founder, it’s so easy to personalize your business as a reflection of you, but that actually leads to irrational decision making.” – Kenny Tomlin, Founding Partner CourtAvenue

Generative AI has become a focus for many within our industry in recent months. A subset of AI-based startups is looking to transform the use of AI within the creative development process – transitioning from a world where only humans could deliver creative work that was legible and well designed to one where AI pairs creatives and machines closely together to improve outputs. Generative AI is predicted to become ready for mainstream use around 2030, but many are still unsure about what a successful AI + creative team partnership could look like. Generative AI startups don’t look to remove creative inputs, but instead, free up creatives to work differently.
If you talk to twenty different marketing and media professionals and ask them for their KPI framework for which they measure success, you’ll likely get twenty different answers. Upon closer inspection, some metrics may be a common thread, but all too often pitfalls exist; some versions may try to measure everything to the point of becoming an eye chart of ups and downs, while others may be so focused on a specific job to be done that they lose context of the bigger picture. At CourtAvenue, we use a KPI framework that aims to simplify format, provide a balance of metrics, and allow for scalability across channels and experiences. All while introducing the customer journey into the mix.

In her new role with CourtAvenue, McGuire will lead the agency’s creative department and guide the team across a variety of projects and new developments, including customer experience, branding, and campaign work. “I’m so excited to join a team with passion for innovative experiences – solving problems by beautifully merging the physical & digital worlds,” says McGuire.
Each year at CourtAvenue, we look around and think through some of the technology and industry shifts that are exciting. In some cases, these represent the convergence of technology, such as in the idea of applying the concept of an AI digital twin to a persona, where the persona can really come alive versus being a static artifact. We also consider technologies gaining maturity, such as augmented and virtual reality, and how they may start to blend into the everyday web and mobile sites we commonly use.
