Finally! I'm back & Ad of the Week.

Well my blog has finally been taken off the black list for no reason!

My ad of the week is a close run thing; Honda or Ray Ban, since i haven't actually seen Honda yet i'll go for Ray Ban.

Great Viral campaign and very funny! 

Anyway, the works going well, just drawing up all my work before the big day on Monday! 

Getting a pre-London Crit of it all my work tomorrow so hopefully that will give me a bit of confidence before London.

Ad of the Week.

Each week I intend to pick an Ad I think is particularly good and worth sharing. Going to try and keep this up every week, as long as there continues to be a stream of ad's worth showing!

Ad of the Week no.1

Bourbons are best.

Today i started reading a new book

The Timewaster Letters by Robin Cooper.

I think it's the funniest book i've ever read (so far anyway) I'm usually pretty skeptical when people tell me about a book they think is good because i'm quite particular on what i read but i would recomend it to everyone. It's basically a load of letters this guy has sent to Garden Centres, Book Publishers etc and sends them his ideas for a book or a garden product or just straight out ridiculous stuff! It's daft but hilarious.

Anyway the point of this blog is about me and Advertising. The story goes, i'm putting together a book with which i will take down to London at the beginning of June, i've got a lot of products done already and loads more to do, aswell as having done some live briefs for a couple of agencies. All in all.

3 Days in London
12 Agency appoinments

Looking for pointers, placement or a job. In reality i'm thinking one and two are most likely.

So like i say, feel free to tag along and i'll update with how my book's going, what i'm up to and how it goes when i go down.

First out of the packet.

Discipline: Copywriter

Destination: London

Ad land is what i seek, but only the good part of town. Free from the gags and cliche. And this is a log of how i'm going about doing exactly that.

Feel free to tag along!
