3. The greatest advertising art director ever, Helmut Krone wanted to do advertising that didn't look like 'advertising', and that gave him the motivation and energy to originate two of the greatest ad campaigns of all time: Volkswagen and Avis.
For Krone, the logo was the enemy.  He says "My life has been a constant fight against logos. A logo says 'I'm an ad, turn the page."
That's the main use of finding or creating an enemy. Clarity and focus, and tapping into a supply of adrenalin.

A: A. Krone says, "I've found a new typeface  to be a great source of energy."
B: B. Krone says, "I've found friendship  to be a great source of energy."
C: C. Krone says, "I've found indignation to be a great source of energy."
