MEXICO CITY. “The best way to spot a good idea is to identify the bad ones first. If you have a terrible idea you’ll try to find out why it’s terrible, and by understanding why it’s terrible, you’ll see what a good one would be. The creative process benefits immensely from the ‘No’”, says Cory Crespo, president of Coloürs, one of Mexico’s top agencies in creativity, marketing, and celebrity management.
He leads the agency alongside Jorge Mondragón, a renowned talent manager, which works with actors such as Karla Souza, Martha Higareda, Diego Boneta, and Oscar Jaenada. The firm has also brought to life events like Winter Beach, Advertising Week, and Fashion Week, and has Coca-Cola, Sony, and Mercedes-Benz among its clients. “[Creativity] is born through experience, through trial and error”, claims Mondragón.
Mondra and Cory -as they’re better known- created the agency 20 years ago, joining together Mondragon’s two-decade experience in the entertainment industry, and Cory’s brand-positioning and creativity knowledge.
