I put moldy whopper in my book because I saw the ad and reacted to it, so in the case study where it says “132.76 Billion impressions” I’m one of those impressions, that was my part in the work. (But I won’t mention that in my book nor tell you unless you ask specifically.)

The Red Cross stuff? That was a US army ad from 10 years ago.

I noticed the same in Pharma and Health categories. The shortlist work was much better than some of the winners in my opinion

A lot that did well in other shows didn’t even shortlist at Cannes. Usually there’s more overlap.

Help me to understand. When you smile, with teeth, do you stick / stuff your tongue behind your front teeth so sometimes they sausage out between the crevices of your teeth?

I’ve seen people make it look not so good. Thoughts?

Ad agency designer desperately looking for an out but I have a possible new job opportunity. Here is my dilemma:

Pros.... more money, no crazy client demands, pitches or decks or even prospective clients that will go nowhere (in-house), better benefits

Cons.... this is a big one - it’s healthcare

I’ve been at agencies with a range of clients for the past few years. Career suicide taking an in-house healthcare job? Especially if role focuses more on growth & performance over design?
