Week 88 – what the hell is interactive advertising

A few days late, here’s Week 88, ending Friday December 14, 2012. A shorter week this one; we took a late long weekend to visit friends down in San Francisco. While we were there, we got some gorgeous tintype portraits done. If you’re ever in San Francisco, you should get some. They’re from Photobooth. Account […]

Week 87

A few days late, here’s Week 87. Account work This week, Coca-Cola Global has been all about getting ready for a giant client demo that happened on Tuesday. Last-minute tweaks, code-freezes, screen walkthroughs, a backup over-the-shoulder film just in case the entire internet dies (Josh is our hand model, I’m voice-over guy). Big, big client […]

Week 86

Week 86 at W+K Portland started with the post-Thanksgiving, pre-Christmas (“holiday”) rush. Last week was a fairly light week – holiday party on the Tuesday, office closed on Wednesday through Friday. Big account work this week. Facebook (secret, as ever, but you’ll know it when you see it) Coca-Cola Global (we’re in our last sprint […]

Week 12 (ending 12 September 2010)

It’s starting to get a bit manic. The big Nike project I’m working on is a huge chaotic blob with tentacles everywhere., and most of Monday and Tuesday was lost to it. Otherwise, I had a chance to (separately) meet with Duncan Gough, Colin Anderson from Denki and Carl Cavers from Foundation 9/Sumo and chat […]

Week 11 (ending 5 September 2010)

Still behind. Slowly catching up. Short week this one, what with the bank holiday, but that of course means that the week was absolutely mental. Or felt that way. It always feels mental, but in a good way. Tuesday was mostly filled with an agency project that I’m working on along with Eleanor and Alex […]

Week 10 (ending 29 August 2010)

I’m writing these from memory now as I’ve lapsed a little. It’s something I’m not very happy about, but here’s hoping I’ll be able to get back on schedule. Anyway. Spent a bit of time on Fairtrade this week – we had the delightful Mink in working with Ben and Sophie, and it was great […]

Week 9

I’m late with this one. Week 10 follows. Week 9 was a big one and also marked my second month at W+K London. It started and ended with a lot of Nike, and then a lot of Nokia in the middle, with, again, a smattering of Fairtrade. But also, quite a lot of games stuff […]

Week 8

Mainly busy with Nike this week. Lots going on, lots of conference calls and the team is getting bigger. Should have something to show relatively soon, and super-excited about the people we’re working with. Outside of Nike, lots of smaller things. Fairtrade and Nokia, for starters, and lots of conversations with partners about some projects […]

Week 7

Outside of work was easier this week: an impromptu performance on Twitter, lots of drinks (including my Six to Start leaving drinks), and yesterday, the Conspiracy for Good finale with Dave and Lee, which turned out to be an inordinate amount of fun. A few theories about that bubbling under. Work is steadily going from […]

Week 6

A short one, last week having been a long one. Jetlag. Ernesto Neto at the Hayward Gallery. Brunch and coffee with friends on Northcote road. Not getting around to playing Limbo. Thinking about a games curriculum and the games canon. Missing Sherlock. That’s it, really.
