  • 5 Steps To A Campaign That Won’t Flop

    In my last blog post “The Rise of the Creative”, I highlighted the importance of the Creative within corporate spaces. Analytical and creative minds think differently and conceptualise contrary ideas which, when put together in the right way, can create progressive ideas that influence public perception. I consider the creative space to be one of…

  • Please Just Stop Doing And Asking For Free Work. Please.

    I shouldn’t have to start this by explaining that actual adjectives for the word “professional” are “paid” and “salaried”. If you’re selling yourself as a professional, don’t negate your title by completing work for free. And if you’re searching for a PROFESSIONAL to complete creative work for you, you shouldn’t have to be asked to…

  • A Female Affair

    As an all-female female-owned agency, female empowerment is kind of a big thing. Here is a list of our favourite gender equality themed Instagram accounts. Bumble Bumble is pretty damn awesome if you ask us. A dating app that is female driven? We likey. Developed by Whitney Wolfe, the app puts women in the driver’s seat…

  • Social Media & Screen Addiction – Part 2

    In part one of this two-part “blog series” dealing with social media and screen addiction, I introduced the idea of social media addiction and compared it to more traditional ideas of addiction. As previously discussed, social media and screen addiction are comparable with substance addictions and other negatively impacting addictions, such as gambling and pornography.…

  • Social Media & Screen Addiction – Part 1

    When delving into the definition of an addiction, words such as ‘dependence’, ‘compulsion’ and ‘fixation’ are listed as synonyms. And it’s fair to say that no good can come of any addiction. Social media addiction is yet another bad habit we’ve inherited from the advancements in modern technology, like online gaming. These days it would appear that not being on social media is more of a taboo than having multiple…

  • Swiped Out

    There’s still a stigma attached to the notion of finding love over the Internet. However, the phrase “internet dating” drums up a very unpleasant image in my mind – one of an overweight man in his fifties, eating a burger that rests unsettlingly upon his bulging stomach, while he types furiously on his archaic home…

  • The Rise Of The Creative

    “I define the Creative Class to include people in science and engineering, architecture and design, education, arts, music and entertainment whose economic function is to create new ideas, new technology, and new creative content. ” Dr. Richard Florida I’ve always known I was different. The pursuit of money was never what I desired. Yes, money…

  • People Still Buy From People

    Online dating apps such as Tinder have been around for a while now for people who have yet to find their “happily ever after”. I know of several online dating success stories, but the majority will agree that it soon becomes a mundane exercise that is not for the faint-hearted. Tinder works off of the…

  • Snapped: Snapchat and the Stoneman Douglas Shooting

    It’s never an easy task to talk about the loss of lives, especially those of children. The Stoneman Douglas High School shooting has been considered one of the deadliest school shootings in US history, ranking among more “iconic” tragedies such as Columbine in 1999, the Virginia Tech shooting and Sandy Hook in 2012. In total,…

  • Advice For Future Employees

    An open letter to my future employees. We’ve had a number of employees at You&Me. Each one has left their mark on us and the company. And this is how it should be. I’d like to believe that as much as an employee has learnt from us during their time here, we have learnt just…
