The Interview Series // 26

We've been on the lookout for the perfect photographer to interview for quite sometime. Someone with a brain full of smart, a large collection of transcendental work and an undeniable connection to the universe. In the global search for such a suitable photographer, we looked to the far reaches of the globe's creative belt. Upon finding the perfect suitor by the name of Jan von Holleben, we sent one of our foreign correspondents to Berlin for a short but knowledgeably dense chat. The ... Read More! »


The Monday Morning WHIP // 53

If there's one thing we've learnt about Stan in over a year worth of WHIPS, it's that he loves a football metaphor. See exhibit A, B, C and D. So when we saw that Frenchman playing european handball with a soccerball last week, we just knew Stan would find a way to write it into this week's WHIP. So here you are kiddies. Learn a thing or two. Much fuss in the sporting media this week about French footballer Thierry Henry committing a professional foul to help get his team through to the ... Read More! »

The Monday Morning WHIP // 46

As a human being it is easy to make excuses. No matter what your age, skill, or ability to talk about what you want to do.

The first step, as Stan knows too well, is preventative. Excuses disappear when you become hungry. Hungry for life, hungry for everything, always. To make it as a creative you need to be permanently hungry. Hungry to ... Read More! »


The Interview Series // 20

Ben Birchall and Shane Dawson had it all: A job at The Campaign Palace in Melbourne, money to buy food, and great haircuts. They evidently spent a lot of time on all of the above for they were model advertising citizens, making funny campaigns and acting like dags for money and fame. Until one fateful day, not too long ago, they were politely asked to 'leave the agency'. Also known as getting 'The Sack'. Instead of 'losing their shit', they decided to document their 'sacking', while trying to ... Read More! »


The Monday Morning WHIP // 45

Thinking about your folio does not mean you're working on it. It took us a while to get that one, but we're better at it now. "Don't talk, just make. Everyday." Got it. Awesome. Tomorrow is a new day! Let's all make something new for our folio. It'll be fun. You in? Need more convincing? Stan has more to say... When was the last time you worked on your folio? If it wasn’t as recently as this week, then I’m guessing it’s not as good as it could be. Sounds harsh I know, but you need to ... Read More! »
