Vision Without Obstruction: What We Learn From Steve Jobs
One of my hero calling for clarity and connecting the dots. All about focus and not getting off track from your goals.
“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart. ”

That’s right. Good to know.
Sci Fi Campaign from Saatchi&Saatchi. I dig the retro execution.
It’s been a while since i’ve seen a good commercial. This is just wow.
Talking bout dope offices, there are too many to list it out (more at CoolHunter). But Ogilvy & Mather’s Guangzhou office has a literally fun theme, “Carnival of Ideas” which caught my attention. Its been up for quite some time now, just thought of sharing cool offices as im currently working in one (cool but not dope) and will show it here on my last day which is in 2 weeks time.
Showing below is McCann Erickson Guangzhou, same design company who did O&M office above. Comparing to KL’s they have a bar/lounge/pool/foosball area! The only fun place we have? a big ass smoking balcony overlooking the highway and occasionally buffet and alcohol serve there. Talking bout fun, imma let you finish but Google Zurich has the best office of all time. Fun that employees can actually use. Time to head to the balcony for a smoke..
In case you’re wondering… yes, i am the person in this S&J commercial that was showing in the cinema recently. Why am i doing in there? I’m just helping out a good friend who owns this shop as he needs “extras”. Weird seeing yourself on the big screen, not to say my head is not big enough. Can check out the video here. *ahem
Always looking forward to this night even though its a tough month ahead for all events. I ad banged from a recent creative by Y&R Colombia to OMFG! flyer visual. Suits the title i reckon. More info on the event here. Get your ass down this weekend!
