Prepare your favorite VHS tapes for this episode of Creatives Are The Worst, because we’re remembering the creator of many of our most beloved ’80s films (and more!) — John Hughes.
John Wilden Hughes Jr. is one of the most prolific filmmakers in America. Recalling his childhood, he once said: “Every time we would get established somewhere, we would move.” Because of this, he found inspiration in inventive artists like Picasso and The Beatles, who he said knew when to “move forward” when it came to their art.
From selling jokes to comedians, he became an advertising copywriter. It was as a writer for National Lampoon magazine that he began writing successful screenplays — and the rest is cinematic history.
Hughes’ films defined modern American cinema. Among his creations are “Sixteen Candles,” “The Breakfast Club,” “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” and “Home Alone.”
He retired from the public eye before his untimely death in 2009, but questions about his legacy still linger today.
This week, we’re asking the question: Is John Hughes the worst?
👉 Creatives Are The Worst is Design Pickle’s podcast, hosted by two of our very own creatives — Kate Rooney (our Brand Director) and Jess Guffey (our Director of Brand Partnerships). Not your typical business banter, Creatives Are The Worst explores the stories behind creatives to answer the question: Are creatives really the worst?
