As a kid growing up in Mr. Gambier Celeste Potter spent her time drawing pictures and dressing up as Astro Boy. Today, she's an animation director at XYZ studios. Makes sense right? We sat down with her to find out how she made it. Junior: Hey Celeste! Tell us how you got into the cartoon business? Celeste Potter: I guess everything started with drawing. I've been drawing almost every day since I can remember. I grew up in a country town called Mt Gambier where it's all about football, ... Read More! »

Coming up with the ideas is only one part of what we do. Selling, presenting and most importantly - winning business is the other. But that's the shit they just don't teach you in class.

Adam Morris has the best beard we've ever seen. No shit. Look at it. It's bushy awesomeness distracted us constantly throughout our early morning interview. And it's distracting us again now from getting to Adam's important bits. See, Adam is founder of Monsieur - a newly formed digital shop in Melbourne.

A talented Art Director by trade, Tony is the ECD of one of NZ's top ad agencies, and is kicking goals left right and center in the creative scene -- the world over. We don't quite know where he fitted in a beer or three with us in the midst of all that, but we managed to ask him a few questions while we could. Junior: Where did it all begin, ... Read More! »
