Dave Trott is one of my advertising idols.
For me, it’s not necessarily for his work, but for the wealth of knowledge and experience he has in the advertising industry that he shares so liberally.
His blog posts are insightful, anecdotal and highly entertaining. I decided a while ago that one day I’m going to travel to the UK and try and work for him. So naturally, I chose to show him in my Push Press Play presentation.
Dave gave a talk at an Account Planning Group seminar on a plethora of topics including effective planning, brief writing, strategy insights and the basics of communication. Just 10 minutes into it, I was hooked and had already filled a page with scribbles.
From time to time, we all need a frame of reference just like this to help us remember what we already know and give us the kick we need to bring our A game to the field.
Watch the discussion here and be motivated to do good, smart work: http://www.apg.org.uk/?p=83

Ok, i’m taking this from an advertising p.o.v. How do you spread interests to the public about Tate Modern Art museum? Team up with the largest pop t-shirt producers in the world! Duh!
But why hasn’t anyone done it till now? I mean, collaborative projects between two different entities is nothing new. Anyway, you guys tell me what it is about. Here’s the link to t-shirt designing joy! YAY!
Hey guys, this is an online campaign by the guys at WALLPAPER and URBAN OUTFITTERS. Its called Impossible Project.
The idea is to continue the production of polaroid films through the support from US! Help them out, spam your friends’ emails, buy their t-shirts, send their maid over to do their cleaning so they dont waste money hiring cleaners!… do whatever..
HELP BRING BACK POLAROID !!!!!! cuz my polaroid camera is sitting in my room collecting dust.. 😦
hey hey hey guys, wow, can’t believe its been a month since we’ve updated this blog! HOLY SHIT! All of our hardwork of bringing in traffic went away! Now we have to start all over again. Kinda. This shows that in the world of social-web space, hard work, consistency and perseverance is important. In fact, it is important in our daily lives. Changes happens because of hardworking-consistent group of people.
Never doubt a small group of thoughtful, commited citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
– Margaret Mead
Having said that, I’d like to top off this wonderful Friday morning with this video of what a small group of people can do to change so many lives. Enjoy
Thanks Swiss Miss and Charity Water.
Caravan is a free house swap and sublet resource for Creative Folk Only. It’s been dubbed as the Craigslist for Creatives.
Caravan is free to use though you need to register to get in touch with other listers. This is to stop real estate agents and erectile dysfunction drug pushers from getting onto the site. If you want to register to get in touch with a lister, click ‘list for free’ and skip straight to registration.
Having came up with this idea, I feel like a proud father to a newborn. (CONGRATS CK of Ben’s Bitches!)
After spending a couple of hours making corrugated lines BY HAND! Here it is my friends, me artwork.
Well, the idea behind this artwork is to give front covers extra function, user-interaction. Instead of just looking pretty these corrugated front covers can be used by readers as a frame to capture the essence of Malaysia. Also, with the headline up front, its a bloody good marketing tool to spread brandnames via user-generated content sites such as Facebook and Flickr.
So marketeers/authors/magazine owners, what are you waiting for?! GET YOUR BITCH ASS UP and contact us!
ps: I still hope that Juice magazine would use this idea for their new magazine cover, or anyone who is interested in making their front cover rock ass!

STEAL OUR IDEAS is a blog by art director and writer Jon & Adam’s unproduced ideas.
I really like the concept of giving now.. never gave it much thought. This shift of mentality is important as I see that this will be the next important thing for marketeers and entrepreneur. In fact, I receive this email from Alex Lam couple of months ago, went through it but never gave it much thought about it. Anyway, it is about changing trends of marketing a brand and its titled appropriately as, GENERATION G.
Anyway, back to S.O.I, this blog just started since it only have 1 and 1/4 page but already it captured my attention of their approach in creating ideas and where they get it from. ZERO BOUNDARIES. I have to remind myself of this. I love this site and will definitely bookmark it. What say you?
