Junior Event // 11

See this guy above? That's Jason! Jason is a junior with a future. He's a student at RMIT and already has an award from the relevant advertising award show in Cannes. He's also a nice dude with a lot to say. Jason is the perfect example of the type of kid you'll find down at the Junior events. Fun, talented and ready to drink. When you're bored of him or the smell gets to you, there's plenty more to shoot the shit with. (Sorry man, you don't really smell. <3?) And if talented juniors ... Read More! »


The Interview Series // 17

Writing these intros can be such a bitch. Trying to think of something witty and original is super ghey, plus you get that added extra of thinking no one will laugh at your jokes. So seeing as we're awesome journalists now, we decided to consult the almanac of Awesome Journalism 2009: Wikipediac.

The Monday Morning WHIP // 21

There really is one piece of advice that soars above the rest. It is the one thing that will land you a job if nothing else will, no matter what industry you're in. This week Stan reminds us what that advice is and the first rule when putting it into action. A little while ago I posted a photo on my blog that I had taken showing a pile of folios. I did this to highlight just how many young people are trying crack their first gig. Suffice to say it generated a string of comments. I’m ... Read More! »


Dear Junior Series // 02

Animators! They're a crazy bunch. Sittin' by their computers all day manipulating dimensions and shit. What a life. Bah! If you can get it that is. Well that's exactly what our friend Cam Gough did. He left his secure job at a studio to pursue his dream of working for himself. At only 25. What a legend. So this week, we ask Cam why the hell you would take the plunge, and ask for some tips for when (or if) we do. Junior: Everyone wants to quit their job and work for themselves, no ... Read More! »
