This is what went down on day two.
Today we met Vicki Maguire, fresh off the plane from Cannes, who revealed she will be giving us a brief involving coffee tomorrow morning...intriguing. In-between that we had a creative wander down Leather Lane and got a meaty HSBC brief. A Tuesday has never gone so fast.

Arrived pretty early and surprisingly dry this time. A massive super bowl brief came in today and I can't wait to get my teeth into it! After a huge Vietnamese lunch I had to do the little interview for the roundup video. surviving the first nervous minutes it ended up being really fun. On my way back I almost casually ran into the partners office but luckily was saved before I actually got in.
Today we were trusted to our own devices. Feedback from yesterdays work proved fruitful and was told to develop some gems. Working closely with Richard the CD is extremely rewarding. Highlight of the day was afternoon tea!! Victoria sponge cake and Lemon drizzle was on the menu today. Looking forward to tomorrow, we have a new brief coming in!
A better morning than yesterday, as there was no rain, no confusion with the buses, and I had the pleasure of meeting one of AnalogFolk’s friendly K9s. The weather was so much better today! So we took the opportunity to have some lunch in the park, where I met some of the other designers from the agency. I also had my first review going over some of the initial ideas I had come up with yesterday and earlier this morning. Now it’s time to begin to develop some of them, and see where they go tomorrow.
Day 2: Today we carried on working with our christmas brief for half the day. After we explored the heavenly food market at lunch we then given a live HSBC brief to work on. We spent the rest of the day racking our brains to come up with some (hopefully) worthy ideas.
Day 2 consisted of warmer weather and enough risky agency Christmas card ideas to offend any good Catholic Grandmother. We had a break from the tinsel and candy canes and enjoyed a food market lunch in the park with the other teams Emily and Charlie, and Sarah and Jules. After getting back we got a great brief from HSBC and emails for 3 briefings tomorrow so now looking forward to a busy day Wednesday. The day was pretty relaxed compared to our evening. We attended the Cannt be replaced book crit night just around the corner. 8 crits in 24 minutes was intense but fun and we made some connections we hope to keep! So thanks YCC and Cannt be Replaced for another great day!
