Think Hard


It’s OK to not be OK. See Me. Studio Something.

There’s a great wee agency in Edinburgh called Studio Something. ¬†They do lovely work. ¬†Consistently.

Here’s some of it for Scottish mental health charity, ¬†See Me. ¬†I always say clients deserve the work they get.

This is an example of a brave client getting what they deserve.

This one’s simple.



Becoming Beckham. Another Adam &Eve Campaign Gold winner for H&M.

This is actually hilarious in parts.  Great demonstration of David Beckham joining his wife in the world of fashion and effortlessly showcasing H&Ms Beckham range with great wit and humour.

Kevin Hart becomes Beckham.

Spooky.

DBA Awards nomination

Delighted to say that the Glasgow Life (World Gymnastics Championships) paper I wrote for Front Page – well I wrote the original paper, that won a Gold and a Chairman’s Award at The Marketing Star Awards earlier this year and Paula Anderson used that as the basis of the DBA paper – has now been shortlisted at the DBA Awards (extremely prestigious and we won a gold three years ago for Royal Caribbean Cruises).

It’s definitely won an award. ¬†Just don’t know what colour yet.



First great ad I’ve seen for the US presidential election.

OK, negative electioneering gets a poor reception typically.

But when it’s great, it’s great. ¬†Right?

Especially when your opponent is an odious, racist fascist.

Beautifully put by the Democrats.
