Tuesday Tip No.63 - Read Jerome's Tips

Jerome Courtial, who writes the excellent Digicynic, has just left BBH for a fab new job to be a planner on Coke and Nike at W&K Amsterdam.

Sadly it means he won't have time to blog any more, hookers and blow being as time-consuming as they are.

But his parting gesture was an excellent set of tips on How To Have A Successful Career In Advertising, that are relevant to every discipline - planning, creative, account handling. Full of insight, his post reminds me just how much I'm going to miss him.

Read it immediately, if not sooner.

I too read Trott's blog now that Scamp has pointed me that way. Every day is like a new after dinner anecdote.

New Coco Pops ads = Total rip off of Drench. They even use Snap in the soundtrack. It's one thing copying youtube, but another ad? And so soon after it aired?!
