Here's the wrap up from day three.
Tom & James | Wunderman
Day 2 + 3 (because we were naughty yesterday and didn’t submit an entry): We had a hectic day. Presented initial ideas at our first ‘creative review’ and ended up having to ditch most of them. We consoled ourselves with falafel over lunch. Spent the rest of the day reworking the others – then it was off to the Cannt Be Replaced Speed Crit…
Today has been a little calmer. Developing the chosen ideas from yesterday further and getting stuck into a portfolio crit with one of the CDs. So far so good!
Max | CHI & Partners
After half the day working at (what at least already feels like) my desk I got the chance to join Will, a copywriter at CHI, doing some life writing for the Euros at a clients office. That basically meant sitting on the 12th floor next the the thames, watching the games and coming up with hilarious stupid puns. Iceland made my day.
We started day 3 with a brilliant briefing from the lovely Vicki Maguire and the McVities team which was made even better by the constant supply of products (you really can't beat a chocolate digestive.) After demolishing nearly an entire packet of biscuits, we felt substantiously queasy and took advantage of the sugar high to quickly rattle off some ideas. After lunch we went through our concepts for HSBC which seemed to go down well and we ended the day on a high that wasn't brought on by sugar!
Another great day at AnalogFolk. We had Eddie the filmmaker in today to record me answering a few questions for the YCC Cannt Be Replaced video. A couple of the questions I answered were what I thought the next big thing was going to be? And what sort of advertising I wanted to make in my career? I’m looking forward to the final edit of the video. I somehow don’t quite think I’m going to be making it onto the big screen though.
Today was an eventful day. Dickie came back to us with feedback on the work we did yesterday. It seems we impressed! Put straight onto a new brief for a digital bank. Half way through the briefing we all noticed an electrical burning smell. Seconds later we're all evacuated outside. Nothing like a bit a drama!
Today we were luck enough to be briefed on McVities, and of course along with this we had the responsibility of sampling some of the products, and by some, we mean a lot so the goes our summer bods. As well as this to finish the day we had a great, insightful feedback meeting with the HSBC team.
