Ever been to see a Creative Director with a book full your precious scribbles only to have him say that your idea won a gold lion at Cannes the previous year?... Yeah. We've all been there. Don't worry one day when you get a job you can steal all the agency's award annuals. Problem solved. But in the mean time, Stan's got some advice to get you through. The ever uncheerful German philosopher Goethe once said that, “Everything has been thought of before. The problem is to think of it ... Read More! »

Glendyn Ivin is a Cannes winning, AFI toting, bearded film-maker with an ability to make cool shit. He's been directing TV commercials for years now - some of which have made him very popular in the industry - but that's not even the cool bit! He's just released his first feature film titled Last Ride, featuring none other than Elrond himself, Hugo Weaving. Can you believe it? What a scoop! We're totally journalists now.

"I need briefs!" - Graduate student, 22.  "I need inspiration!" - Artsy Schmartzy Dude, 24.  Bah! You don't need nuthin'. All you need is to start. If even that's giving you grief, here's some suggestions from our resident whip-cracker, Stan. You don’t need me to tell you that getting a full time creative job takes time. It can take months, even ... Read More! »

If you want to be a creative there's only one thing to do - create. Make stuff every day. Someone once told us, "There is no right or wrong - only make." This week Stan does what he does best, reminding us why we're here and what to do. So you wanna be a creative do you? OK then. Tell me what you’ve created this week? “Well….It’s a bit hard at the moment. Um….I work in a café a couple of afternoons a week, so it’s hard to find the time.” That, my young friends, is a ...
