"The Gunn Report for Media 2015 proves that more than ever media innovation and creativity are key to brand success," said Isabelle Musnik, editor of The Gunn Report for Media. "Creativity and media are not mutually exclusive or even in competition—they interact with each other. While technology and data are fundamental to achieving results, it is insight, strategy and ideas that are essential to delivering them."
