Job Ad



The classic in this genre was by Paul 'Swingers' Bringelow a few years back. It was an all-type ad that just said "Christ I need an art director" in really terrible handwriting. Even the box around it was wonky.

But I've never seen an actual piece of moving film to this brief before. Fair play to Miles for doing something different.

very nice indeed. I might apply!

I wonder if Miles will get any offers from Kate Moss?

Bollocks scamp.
The best self promotional ad was a print ad, if I remember correctly, showing a pair of Levi's jeans with a can of Special Brew replacing the 'red tab'. The line underneath read: 'The guy who wrote this ad just fired me. To see what he doesn't like, call.....' (or something along those lines).
Makes Miles' ad look rather lame.

that is in D&AD 1993, fact fans. Although I've not heard of the team since.

And that's not the best self promotional ad anyway. The one in the ambient section of D&AD 2002 is your puppy. The team just put a piece of paper with their names and numbers in as an entry. Audience: the D&AD Ambient jury.

i bumped into one of the team that did that ambient thing and asked if anyone called the number, no one had, nice ad, piss poor effectiveness though.

and they've split up, so it's not a puppy.
more of a weasel.

Never mind that. Get the jew-hating Livingstone out of the town hall. The only other option is Boris. He's not perfect but he's better than shitty weasel bastard Ken.

Vote Boris!

scamp, maybe you should let scowling AD have a look at your blog site, not sure about the new look.

I second that about the blog design, one of the worst I've seen to be honest!

Chill out, guys. Just having a tinker. I'll do it at night next time!

I don't normally do requests unless they involve my winkie-dinkie and a Kenwood Chef, but here you go:

I like the look of Miles.

From his mime I infer that he will render me unconscious with some sort of blow to the stomach, finger me (or cut off my nipples with scissors), then have a good rummage in his anus and fist me with his shit-stained fingers.

Where do I sign?

Miles is lovely. You should team up with him.

I met Miles. He's a nice bloke. And in the graet scheme of things. "Nice bloke" is the greatest sobriquet a man could have.

I think Publicis has just lost its mind, have they gone completely mad or what?

fucked-off Shop employee. Soon to be unemployee. said...

Job ad:

Ailing dinosaur agency with shite creative reputation seeks creative director who ran his last agency into the ground, produced little of note for them in five years and treats his junior creatives like shit.

Apply: Publicis.

Hi Simon,

I just wanted to say happy birthday and thank you for hosting such a lovely forum for me to express my sexuality in a verbal manner when my fingers are available and not revving up the tickle-switch as they are most of the time.

If you want a freebie you'll have to join the six already in there, but the offer's on the table.

(Sorry, it's seven now.)

Happy Birthday Simon.
Hope all is well.
