The Interview Series // 24

Most interviews we read in magazines are shit. It's what inspires us to do what we do. That and other magazines that do brilliant interviews. Magazines like SneakerFreaker - Melbourne's very own incredibly good and culturally important international publishing success. Founded, edited and owned by the original sneaker freaker himself, Woody has built SF into a global behemoth. He's also seen his fair share of young upstarts float through his office, lived and worked overseas, moved from ... Read More! »

The Monday Morning WHIP // 49

There once was a time in the history of modern advertising, when mad men were actually mad, and the industry produced characters larger than life. People like Charles Saatchi, Ed McCabe, Bill Bernbach, and George Lois, who in particular once said, "I know what the fuck I know, and you know what the hell you know, and I’ll tell you what I think, and you tell me to fuck off." Stan knows the things that made these characters larger than life can make you successful too. You just have to find ... Read More! »

Remember that emo-kid at school who 'managed' the punk band? Let's call that kid ‘street smart kid’. 'Street smart kid' was the shit. He was creative, tenacious, focused, could get a hundred screaming kids along to some shitty gig in the sticks, and hacked up letterboxes with an axe after downing a bottle of Jimmy B at your fifteenth birthday. Where is 'street smart kid' now? Running that record label you want to work for, of course. This week we interview one such 'street smart kid' - ... Read More! »

The Monday Morning WHIP // 31

Everyone knows you don't make friends with science. But what many don't know is that it can build your contacts. And make your ideas bigger. AND make you a better creative. It's an age-old but relevant theory. Today, professor Stan has his white coat on and what he's got to say ain't boron. Those of you who managed to stay awake during science classes at school are sure to be familiar with Newton’s Laws of Motion. My favourite is #3: For every action there is an equal and opposite ...
