While we're now three, and have accumulated Fisher Price trucks, kitchens and play pens, Stan thinks you should now be onto it enough to have lost the training wheels. Junior turned three this week. Experts say that children learn more in their first three or four years than they do throughout the rest of their life. I’m not sure if that’s 100% true, but it sure sounds impressive when you quote it. If it is true, then it stands to reason that if you visit Junior regularly then ... Read More! »
See, we're still only little. We're really just Juniors ourselves - three isn't a very big number. But it's a big achievement for us. So, we'd like to say a big thank you to all of you who have helped us get this far - those of you who have done more than others, you know who you are.

This week, Stan sounds a little like he's been watching too much Oprah. Many kids have asked me how to know when you’ve got a good idea. And the answer is, quite simply, you just know. Generally this answer gets met with a look of bemusement. Followed by a stuttering re-asking of the question. Like I said, you just know. You know because you feel different when you give voice to the idea. It makes you tingle. It makes you excited. It makes you want to jump out of ... Read More! »
Aw, Stan. Steve, sad. Sigh. When I wandered into Mattingly & Partners in the early 90’s to write copy for Myer catalogues my tool of trade was an Apple Macintosh. When I decided to leave JWT to go try my luck in London I wrote my resignation letter on a Bondi Blue iMac. And last week, when I learned of the passing of Steve Jobs, I did so via Twitter on an iPhone. So it seems only right, that I share with you some truly inspirational thoughts from Steve in this week’s ... Read More! »
