It’s not very often you see a line-up for a talk and go FUCK - I HAVE TO BE THERE. But with this one that’s exactly how you immediately have to feel, unless you’re in the dark ages and don’t know who they are. Creative Social have seriously smashed it with the stellar selection of creative geniuses for you to be a super soaker sponge to learn from for the night.
Last night I was a critter at the DMA / IDM / Graeme Robertson Trust Big Book Crit in London. There are a few more happening in Manchester, Norwich, Edinburgh and Bristol TOMORROW. So if you’re reading this and haven’t registered, head here.
We had 15 minute crits with student/grad teams – which isn’t a lot for someone like me who waffles on – but it did throw up a few thoughts that I thought might be good if you attend something similar in the future. *Cough* a bit like our R/GA Speed Dating in a couple of weeks.
Here are a few ideas to get the most out of your quick-fire crits.
Yesterday, we celebrated International Woman's Day with 30 amazing pieces of advice from some of the industries finest. But... who created that incredible logo we heard you all ask? None other than the award-winning hand lettering artist; Alison Carmichael. We caught up with Alison to find out a little bit more about her story and how she ended up mixing with us 'orrible lot.
It’s Nice That’s monthly edition of Nicer Tuesday’s had a stellar line-up and some solid nuggets of advice that left me eager to run out of the room and do some cool shit, as soon as they stopped speaking. With Carl Burgess of More & More, photographer Mirka Laura Severa, curator Olivia Ahmad and director Oscar Hudson you could not, not be inspired by their talent.
Short notice peeps. Standard. But this has dropped into our inbox. A two day hack with our friends at Good Innovation in London – NEXT WEEK. Interested? Might be some pennies available too.
The new year is upon us and with that a flurry of events to inspire your tickers, noggins, brains or whatever you choose to call that thing at the top of your body are here.
Creative Social as always have got a bunch of jolly neat stuff lined up for the year, the first being Creative Super Powers. A session to help you reconnect with your inner free creative spirit, getting you ready to be fucking shit hot this year.
We’ve got a very special competition launching today – with a prize that can’t be bought.
We’ve acquired a 6-sheet poster site inside Mother London and we’re giving it away to one lucky person/team for a week.
I sat in one of the Miami Ad School NY's classrooms overlooking Brooklyn Bridge when I received an email from AKQA London inviting me to join them for a 3 month internship. I jumped up and called my family in Germany, making stupid remarks like “London calling!” - I couldn’t hold my excitement. I should have known back then that it wouldn’t be the last time I’d say those words. Surely enough, one month later (2014) I moved to London and fled the big apple just before a huge snow storm hit the East Coast.
It was 2011, and the second year of our Advertising & Brand Communication course at the University for Creative Arts (UCA), Farnham. Our lecturer had encouraged everyone to do work experience and gave us a six week window in which to find somewhere willing to take a punt on us.
