Last and final day of the ADCG

Sunday 11th Nov Day 3

The final day of AGDC. The first round of presentations started at 9:30am. Not surprisingly, alot of ppl did not attend these early presentations after last nights round of endless drinks and hitting the pub after 11pm. I got about 3 hours sleep and I arrived like a zombie :)


Day two - Saturday - of the ADCG

Day 2 of AGDC

Saturday proved to be a dissappointment for AGDC. There were very few booths/stalls. Alias|Wavefront, Discrete and Intel were the prominent ones. Other companies include Auran, Infogrames, AIE, Mad Academy and a couple of others.

Goodby's Dignified Good-byes

Even under the duress of the current economic climate, Goodby Silverstein & Partners remains a class act in both the quality of their work and the management of their agency.

In an e-mail obtained by fuckedcompany (which mistakenly identifies them as a "lawfirm"), they compassionately explain staff and pay cuts.
