Would you believe R/GA, digital agency of the decade, started in the late seventies as a production company? Founded by two brothers -- they created the first integrated computer-assisted production process (oh Wikipedia, you make us sound so clever)! Translation: they revolutionised motion graphics and special effects. Heck! They did the opening titles for the original Superman and have Oscars on their wall. Flash-forward twenty-something years and they've shaken up the fundamentals of the ... Read More! »

Juniors, meet Sarah. We met her on a recent jaunt to New York City where she is the Executive Creative Director of JWT. If you were born circa 1985 like us, you missed out on probably the best years of working in advertising. But you might just remember seeing the ad that launched this Aussie expat's career -- Antz Pantz. 21 years on, with 10 of those years based in New York, we wanted to know how she made it through the eighties and nineties and got from Antz to the Big Apple, as well as the ...

Scott Thomas, also known as Simple Scott, was the Design Director who helped to get Barack Obama elected as American president in 2008.

The Interview Series // 23 (Part Two)

"Work on your shit. Ride your bicycle. Don’t have sex. Work hard. Be nice. Pay attention. What else? That’s kinda it. Oh, and don’t buy dumb shit." And that, our clever and taste-ridden friends, is where Part One of Daniel Bremmer's interview finished. If you haven't read it yet, read it now. We got really drunk in a Brooklyn bar and solved the problems of the universe, pretty much. This second half however, is even better--we really hit our stride. It seems the more alcohol we ...

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! »
