Advertising industry must support local musicians
Advertising industry must support local musicians

I am dreaming of a day when the music and the advertising industries would consistently work together like hand in glove. In the early 80s, most adverts' musical scores were freshly produced by either budding musicians or established musicians themselves. This brings to mind adverts such as Body Mist, Jungle Oats, Cadbury Chomp etc.

A saga in three chapters

This is a tale in three chapters of behind-the-scenes newsroom intrigue and backstabbing. It will tell you something about journalism in this country and the state of one of our flagship newsrooms at the Sunday Times. I am not sure exactly what it will tell you, but I will leave it up to you to decide.

The importance of being an amateur - Blast Brand Catalysts
The importance of being an amateur

Professionalism is a key perception we like to project in our world of selling. And, for that matter, in any other profession, be it medical, legal, accounting. One of my favourite lines in the fantastical reality of American Beauty is Annette Bening's OCD Carolyn, the estate agent's emphatic assurance that "To be successful, one must project the image of success at all times." Indeed. Success sells.

The awesome power of an apology

It is a window of opportunity that has opened up for perhaps just a few years but it is going to take the mass media, marketing strategists, ad agencies, and clients with titanium balls to really make the best of it.

Propaganda war is now in the hands of the people

Israel rests on its military strength. There is no doubting its ability to exercise its superiority over Gaza and, while Hamas and others harass and inflict losses on the Jewish state, no one thinks they can win on the open battlefield.
