Love your work

I know it says designers but I think we all know this graph applies to anyone who gets paid to come up with ideas for a client.

And yet we all continue to turn up to work and re-live this graph over and over again.

Are we all mad?

Or do we simply love what we do no matter what?

Simon Sinek talks and talks

Simon Sinek is one of those names that pops up regularly in my Linkedin feed.

He's a smart guy with smart things to say about work and the workplace.

His chat with Debbie Millman is well worth putting on your iPod for your commute to work.

Great print copy lives!

Good to see a powerful headline in print is no longer a thing of the past.

The ad's by Adelaide agency KWP!

Took me back to my early days in advertising when ads like this really got me pushing my thinking.

New John Lewis sails in

 Simply beautiful work by Adam&Eve DDB. I'd like to add a personal opinion but really there's nothing more to say except click the pics for a better look.

The Giant Crumpet Show

Shudder to think what it cost to get The Muppets for the ad. But man oh man it was worth every penny.

McDonalds everywhere

Every time I look at this McDonalds home delivery ad it sends shivers down my spine.

And not in a good way.

McDonalds is everywhere. And a lot of people love it.

But the sight of those Golden Arches in beautiful old streets always gets me down.

So you can imagine how I feel looking at this press ad by DDB Vienna.

Give the gift of home

Very touching spot for an air freshener.

Yes you read that right. An air freshener.

Well I guess if anyone can crack that brief Droga5 NYC can.

Good to see it also involves a partnership with Habitat For Humanity to help benefit families and their homes.

Things I wish I'd said

This is a very long book.

Not exactly sure how many pages.

Probably because every time you turn a page another is added at the back of the book.

So how 'bout you put your copy of the book down.

And go make something happen.

Avoid #GiftFace

 I'm one of those people who is notoriously difficult to buy gifts for.

What can I say. I'm a man of well considered taste.

Suffice to say I am appallingly bad at hiding my disappointment in a gift.

Which may explain why I love the Harvey Nichols #GiftFace campaign.

It's by the always reliable Adam&Eve DDB.

There's a nice tv spot too. You can find it on YouTube.
