Creature London

You better watch out, you better not cry, better not pout, I’m telling you why… there’s a massive creature that has just set up it’s nest down Curtain Road. Luckily, it’s not the dangerous type that’ll rip off your head and take a dump down your throat… it’s an advertising agency.

It’s the offspring of Creature Seattle located in London, but way cooler. My creative partner and I have had the pleasure of working here the past two weeks on placement.

It’s been a great experience, everyone is cool and we’ve mainly been juicing our brains generating ideas for pitch work to win some new clients.

The agency only set up shop here a few weeks ago which was nice for us because we got to see a new agency coming together and nice for them because they’re a blank canvas for whatever awesomeness they want to paint on it.

Creature London is definitely going to be a contender in the industry. It’s one of those rare places where good ideas come first, not all of that corporate bollocks that goes on in huge factory type agencies. It’s a smaller agency with big ideas and the combined experience to execute them well.

Also, their website looks dope.

And they feed us pizza and beer during late night mock-up sessions.

…and because we’re grateful for them taking us under their horribly disfigured creature like appendage which we’ll call a wing for the purpose of this blog post, we bought them Krispy Kremes.

Now we’ll wait for the laxatives to take effect.

Len Chi: Tick Tock

Len Chi is a bloody genius. The way this has been filmed and the whole concept of it is beautiful. It’s touching, thought provoking and it even has a quote from Steve Jobs in it.

New Homepage!

Woohoo, it’s about time I got something up on the main domain! I plan to fill it up with work so if someone visits http://marcusmichaels.com – it’s my portfolio and then that leads into the blog, rather than having a blog with some dog vomit as a main page.

Saying that though, it’s not dog vomit any more! Oh no. Now it’s a slightly more vain attempt of a landing page featuring myself as the background image… it wasn’t meant to be vain; just coincidence. I think I should probably remove the pictures of myself from the blog though – people might start talking.

Anyway, here’s the site, if you click on the picture you can visit it live, although it looks the same.
