The Interview Series // 30

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. All of which make his work completely utilitarian in the best way possible; people seem to interact with the websites ... Read More! »


Dear Junior Series // 05

Dear Junior: an attempt to ask industry leaders the pressing questions that us, the quarrelous and unfriendly youth of today, are interested to find answers to. In our fifth installment, we're talking Women in Advertising. Rather than write an intro ourselves full of the male bravado you've come to know and love, we hired an intern to do the job for us. Here's Crystal with her very best intro. Chaka Khan once sang, “I’m a woman in a man’s world”. She was chanting about the wonderful ... Read More! »


The Interview Series // 28

Alright, alright. We know what you're thinking, "Another ad-guy? When you kids gonna get over this ad-schmer-tising thing, huh?" Well you're right. Evan Fry is an ad-guy. But he ain't just any ad-guy--he's a true-blue award-winning ex-Creative Director of Crispin Porter & Bogusky style ad-guy, and he has some good shit to say, so chill out, bro. That sort of heritage makes him better than most ad-guys, who on the whole are a dime-a-dozen, and definitely don't look this good with a head ... Read More! »


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. Within this house of comfort and mirth we hosted our December event, presided over by none other than our old friend Stuart Geddes, one of Melbourne's most visually articulate and clever designers from Chase & Galley. 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! »


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 ...

The Interview Series // 25

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! »
