...what no cheese? Ok, have you ever noticed that a computer mouse can look a wee bit like a wineglass when turned upside down? Well, so did everybody else!

Hands up if you wear fur!

The image for this anti-fur ad was photographed by Mary McCartney, daughter of Sir Paul and the late Lady Linda and the concept was developed by Jeremy Pemberton from IMP London. This campaign runs nationwide (UK) in November 1999 but there are already plans to translate and run it in Spain and possibly Italy.

Pigeon Holed - which type of creative are you?


'Pigeon-Holed.'


Creatives in advertising agencies fall into 7 categories. We know who you are. Do you?

  • 1) The Resigned Creative.
  • You have worked in the same agency for 8 years. You remember the good old days, when clients actually bought your work. You occasionally get to produce a campaign of in-store shelf wobblers for dishwasher detergent. You have work in your book for a beer campaign from 4 and a half years ago that won you a pewter tankard award from Brewer's Monthly magazine. You sweat cynicism. You wear permanent 'shit happens' sucked-in lips. Your eyes are glazed over due to excessive confidence-crises.

    Dad needs a new..... Well, we know what he doesn't need.

    Someone scanned this from Arkansas Democrat-Gazette and all of adlist hasn't stopped laughing since we saw it. If there was ever a time one should photoshop items into a different color, this would be it.

    an Interview with John Gillard

    John Gillard

    The School of Communication Arts lasted from 1985 to 1995 before Gillard retired, I went to that school in 1994 and like the other ex-pupils of Gillard, I'll never forget what he taught us. -- Dabitch

    " John Gillard taught me more than I know."

    -- Graham Fink.

    Other peoples heroes are always disappointing.
    John Gillard founder and principal of the School of Communication Arts, may possibly appreciate the aphoristic tang of that opening sentence.
