And on that subject, although we have the likes of IGTV and Snap Originals these days, creating high-quality vertical content has yet to fully come to form. Given that millions of people all but live on their phones, what's up with that? Creatives love a challenge, Taylor says, so why not see who could actually do it best and come up with something that suits the format?
