I just don't know what to do with myself....

Well D&AD New Blood is packed up and over...

It was good fun while it lasted. We also managed to squeeze in a workshop at a digital agency called R/GA. They set us a brief to advertise a new bubbly chocolate bar called 'Mars Bubbles' and find an idea that could be used across all media. T'was really informative so we'll probably pop back for a book crit. Was also really interesting to see work from other teams in the same position we are.

We also fitted in book crits with Adam & Eve, Dare and Ogilvy. The consensus seemed to be that there are no placements left in London this summer, but we will keep trying! They all gave us some great feedback and were really encouraging about the future.

Vicky and I have now parted for a few weeks to get some more work done, and hopefully earn a bit of money as I am currently the poorest I have ever been, ever. I would ideally love a bit of work at a local agency to tide me over and get some experience. But for now I am unemployed and in and out of the local job centre, how lovely.

Business Cards

Vicky and I have had to come up with some new business cards in time for our stint at D&AD New Blood. Therefore we've been researching for some creative inspiration - here are some of my favourites...

AKQA have had this great idea for a Durex iPhone app that you can use to 'impregnate' someone's phone with! You have to look after a baby by rocking your phone and 'feeding' it and you can't get rid of it until you have bought a pack of Durex condoms and scanned the code on the box. Great idea, and definately something that would get passed around.

The End Is Nigh

The final show opening was a great success and our self-promo went down a treat.

The show is open now! Mon-Fri - 10am-4pm and Sat 12th 10am-3pm, get down to Thomas Parker House!

Advertise and be saved.

Here are a few of the posters from our final show. The theme of the show is beliefs and how each creative team follow their own sort of religion of advertising.

And here is Vicky and I as 'The Clarity Crusade'...

The show opens tomorrow night along with our self-promo screening at the Lincoln Odeon. It's open to the public from Saturday the 5th of June until the 18th and is closed on Sundays. It will be interesting to see whether my parents understand our theme or our self-promo...
