I love the company I work at but they are forcing everyone to return to office after two years working fully remote and the most successful eight quarters the company has had in years. People are leaving left and right forcing me and other team members to pick up the slack. For many reasons I do not want to return to office and they are standing firm on their policy. It has forced me to consider other opportunities. Anyone have any recommendations on remote opportunities?

Our senior creative leadership keep talking about winning Cannes Lions and D&AD pencils but none of them have actually won any since 2007 (that’s 14 years 😭 ) and between all three of them they’ve never won more than a couple of silvers, a couple of bronzes and a couple of in-books (that’s with a combined experience of over 60 years 😭). They have no clue 🤣🤣🤣😭😭😭. Tell me something about your agency so that I can feel better about the hell-hole I find myself in🙏

PPT for Mac good enough to justify the purchase of an M1? It’s been 5 years since used last and it seems better, but still missing some key features such as text formatting.
Still have not found an ideal solution to manage multiple projects (tasks) and teams in ppt. Gaant chats, inserting excel....do you have an idea?

Super useful trick for anyone creating images from PowerPoint (promotional material, or executive slides etc) to increase resolution. You have to go into regedit and change the dpi to 300 (watch this tutorial here: https://youtu.be/TEFJBeZmsCI). Once you notice that PowerPoint only exports at 96dpi by default, you can never under it and will see poorly exported images everywhere online
