Ikea Cats

Beautifully shot, lovely idea. Makes me want to buy cats, not Ikea furniture.

Our First Placement

Week one of our placement at Muirhoward is now complete. We've managed to get a few of our Deloitte ideas picked for the next campaign, not sure whether the client likes them yet but will continue to update you all.

Here is some of Muirhoward's past work on Deloitte:

We've been working mainly on financial/banking type briefs, which aren't the most exciting products to advertise but are nonetheless, live briefs.

We are conveniently situated between some of the finest sandwich establishments in Farringdon. This is not good for our finances and definately not good for our health.

After just four days of our two week placement we have been asked to stay on for a further two months! That means they want us here until the end of November!

We may have to get ourselves some Ben's Cookies in celebration.

Long Copy Ads

Its always good to see some long copy, especially as it seems to be dying out. Here are a couple of fantastic, modern examples from Krispy Kreme and Wispa:

If you have a favourite long copy ad, please send me a link!

"Literally the best cookie I've ever had"

Vicky and I were united again this week to visit and revisit a few agencies. We were fairly confident about our book this time because it had earned us a placement at Muirhoward. However, as always, people had very different opinions to each other. In one agency a campaign was our best work and in another, it had to be taken out of our book.

Its nice to go back and see familiar faces in an agency, especially when the team you're meeting are some sort of comedy double act. Unfortunately it also makes it even more frustrating when you know for sure that you'd really like to work in a place...

We also took some time out to see Scott Pilgrim Vs The World. It was possibly the oddest film I've ever seen. Is it a computer game turned into a film? Or a film turned into a computer game? Although it was weird, it was enjoyable and even funny in places. For those Lincolnites who see it - check out the young Gyles Lingwood playing Gideon (the villain).

A highlight of our London excursions has to be the discovery of Ben's Cookies. If you haven't been I suggest you get down there ASAP. They look so hard and crispy but they literally melt in your mouth. I had a white chocolate and macadamia nut beauty, there are no words to describe.....
