Scott Thomas, also known as Simple Scott, was the Design Director who helped to get Barack Obama elected as American president in 2008. Scott is not your typical designer, that much is true, although the typical designer should certainly be more like Scott. He's an incredibly articulate and clear thinker heavily influenced by architecture, modernism and the human experience.

Junior Event // 13

How great is Thousand Pound Bend!? It's such a versatile venue. It feels like our home with all those couches and bedraggled furniture scattered about.

Luckily for those who weren't there, he's sent us a copy of his ten tips in ten minutes, which you can download here. If ... Read More! »

Man or machine? Leo's glowing global reputation as a 'wunderkind' will have you believe the latter. It was our supposition that surely he must be human -- mortal and unfunny in real life -- just like you or I. We ventured to New York City in order to find out, and the story goes thus: Three short years ago, Leo and his creative partner, Jan Jacobs, were anointed Saatchi & Saatchi New York's joint Executive Creative Directors. At the time Leo was just 28. They left after one highly awarded ... Read More! »


The Monday Morning WHIP // 52

That's right everyone. Keep working. Don't stop. We're with you all the way. No matter who says your work is shit, off-brief, derivative, uncool, forced, uninteresting, lofty, idealistic, beige, untrue, wallpaper, too long, too short, too big, not big enough, square, round, pointy, or plain. We don't care. Just keep doing your thing. And listen to everything Stan says... Apparently I’ve been churning out these Monday Whips for over a year now. If you were there for the first one, and ...
