  • 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…

  • 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…

  • Lines On Lines On Lines

    You know when you see someone else’s symmetrical, equal-distanced, perfectly lined design and you silently curse them to the eternal fires of hell for all eternity for being so damn great? Yeah, I’ve been there too. Well, what would you say if I told you there was a way to create your own symmetrical, equal-distanced,…

  • It’s OK Not To Give A F-ck

    This months blog post comes in the form of a diagram, a single quote, and a “Thanks” to Craig Rodney for opening my eyes to how little of a f*ck I was giving to myself, and the damage that was doing:   “Because when we give too many f*cks, when we choose to give a…

  • Graffiti Advertising – The Next Wall

    On the one hand Graffiti and the other advertising, two star-crossed mediums, which for mostly superficial reasons aren’t comfortable occupying the same space. Okay, I don’t fancy myself much of a writer but, I’ll get the ball rolling here and hope I make sense. When one thinks of graffiti, the mind generally tends towards its…

  • Inktober, Baby!

    I’ve finally (after a bit of a false start) decided to give Inktober a go. For a while I’ve been beating myself up a bit about not giving myself enough time to just enjoy drawing further than the work that I do – and the whole point its to develop positive drawing habits, so why not?…

  • AN ODE TO OLD SCHOOL

    When I sat down to write this blog post I was in a very cheeky mood. So cheeky in fact, that instead of writing the usual post I took the opportunity to shake things up and discuss the two great passions of my life – old school music and drawing. My love for both stirred…

  • Keeping Up With The Podcasts

    Owning and running a creative business has its perks. Being surrounded by like-minded creative people is what makes me get up in the morning. Being able to have a conversation with someone that can articulate their view on the world is a breath of fresh air, even if their view on the world seems to…

  • Kindness in Business

    Why does being a businesswoman or a boss govern the level of kindness we’re “professionally” permitted to give to those we work with? One can’t be blind to the fact that all people with whom we interact have lives, and sometimes those lives go through pretty shitty patches. Being there for a friend or even…
