Firstly, I doubt there's anybody in the entire Halfords entity as helpful or sincere as the staff member at the beginning, that aside… I love how it starts like a lot of adverts these days, wanky bit of poetry, helful stranger, we're all in it together, bla bla. But wait... Continue reading

Lets start this year how I mean to continue. New year, a new, refreshed and more proactive me. Every spare minute a blessing and every new challenge an opportunity. Tonight I will be starting my own 100 Day Project. Watch this space. Continue reading

In mid December I took a creative day from work and went to the design museum to see the exhibition on Paul Smith. If you haven't been already, it's well worth a visit. You get a unique glimpse into the mind of one of Britain's creative treasures. From his inspiration,... Continue reading

The other day my friend, Will, showed me the ad for the Nokia, Lumia 1020. It's sort of funny, I guess. It could have been half the length, I got the point pretty early on. It should have ended with the smart couple at the back commenting on how good... Continue reading

I've not made up my mind what I think about this ad yet. It's very 'American'. There is a distinct, half-time Superbow feel about it. No dancing, no catchy tune. Just people 'doing' and doing so easily because they have an apple product to 'do' on. Continue reading

I'm doing some research. I'm doing some research because the School of Communication Arts has an internship on offer. The School of communication Arts has a (paid for) place on it's course and my dream is to attend the SCA course. What are the chanses of me getting on the... Continue reading

This starts off a clever parody of birdwatching. We know it is a play on birdwatching, we know that as soon as we see Bill Oddie, dressed in trademark green fleece, clutching binoculars and telling us he is banker watching. There is an important message here, but I think the... Continue reading

Great juxtaposition, great feel, great message. In short – great. A haunting video that really brings home the effect that 'marine plastic pollution' has on Australian marine birds It feels like Greanpeace is taking the fight to Coca Cola and beating them on their own turf. Continue reading

via niice.co Does exactly what it says on the tin. Nice idea, it's in my favourites. I'll be trying it out later. Continue reading

Sonos did something brave recently. They made an ad using, what I would consider to be, the greatest piece of cinema ever made. I, of course, am referring to the Bohemian Rhapsedy scene from the movie Wayne's World. But for me, as an ad, it doesn't quite 'do it'. You... Continue reading

No, it's not the most recent video, granted. But the words of wisdom Rory Sutherland has to say are as relevant as they were when he presented at his Ted talk. Continue reading

I'm not sure what I just witnessed. Cool, stylish, moody, bizzarre. It's more of an execution that any clear 'idea' that I can see, but it is neat all the same. See for yourself. Continue reading

I didn't like the Half Time America ad. I can't say why, I like Clint Eastwood, I like Americana, but it didn't hit the right buttons. For me, it doesn't work, it borrows a formula I don't like (akin to Cathederal City and MacDonalds) 'We're all in it together'. The... Continue reading

This week I am attending a summer school at Central St Martins (CSM). I am not going into detail about the course now except that I am glad I am doing it. I haven't been to CSM before so i wasnt sure what to expect. Walking around the building is... Continue reading

King's Cross is undergoing a lot of redevelopment. What I really like is the redevelopment all compliments the existing architecture and adds to the character of the area rather than detract from it. Near the entrance to Central St Martins is a junction box. It's the usual drab, grey affair,... Continue reading

I'm not really sure where all of this comes from, but I certeinly like it. The idea of spongebob becoming a cultural icon and object of aspiration, that is the sort of irony that I like. Continue reading

There's a lot more than two in reality, but these are the two that rile me currently. You've all probably seen them, the 'Top 80 best logos in the world ever...' you look at them and not one of the 80 best logos ever made is on the list. There... Continue reading

I saw this on the train into town. I was expecting it to finish with something profound about equal opportunities or the plight of women in present day Afghanistan. Instead it for the jubilee. The Spectator hasn't changed. Continue reading

I bought this yesterday. I read it this morning in about an hour, it's good. It cost me £9, that's £9 for about an hours reading. But I learned a lot, I read it cover to cover. I have a lot of books at home that I never finished, I... Continue reading
