Junior Event // 29

Oops. We forgot we took photos at our last event in Melbourne at The Worker's Club a couple of weeks ago. But we didn't forget Brendan! As the Editor of the newly revamped Desktop magazine, his tips were great - and you can see most of them in the snaps below. ...

Brendan McKnight is the fresh-faced editor of Desktop magazine. At just 26, the magazine is almost older than him - but that hasn't stopped him. Since stepping up from Online Editor, he pitched a new vision for the mag, which centred around a celebration of the 'culture of design'. We'd tell you more of the juicy goss, but Brendan swore us to secrecy when we caught up with him amid the craziness of the unveiling of the first issue.

Which, in our opinion, if you don't laugh at, probably means you ... Read More! »


The Interview Series // 36

When the Bogusky of Crispin Porter + Bogusky famously exited the industry in August, he made a special mention of a few copywriters that he regarded as some of the most super, extra talented that he'd ever worked with. Among them was Bill Wright - CP+B Vice-President, and Creative Director on the agency's Burger King account. Just imagine thinking about all of those Whoppers and fries all day!
