Justice 4 Grenfell

It's been 8 months since the horrific fire at the Grenfell Tower.

And like many other appalling matters of injustice it's dropped off the news radar.

So the Justice4Grenfell collective took a leaf out of the book of the film 3 Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri.

71 people died in the Grenfell Tower tragedy. Yet not one person has been arrested. Not one!

Hundreds of survivors are homeless. And still there is no justice.

Haxley & Field Notes

I'm a big fan of the Field Notes brand. I'm sure you probably are too.

These new ones with illustrations by Jay Ryan are particularly charming.

In fact a set are currently in the post on their way to my home!

This lovely little film is sure to make you fall in love with them too.

Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner



Utter brilliance from the team at W+K. What really makes this special is it absolutely reeks of 21st century London life. A London so far removed from the one my dad grew up in that I honestly can't believe that the UK voted Yes to Brexit.

It's just not on #2



If you turn a blind eye. If you don't say anything. And if you don't think this is wrong. Well what do I say?

Old school copywriting

I know. I know. They don't make ads like this any more.

And they certainly don't write copy anywhere near as good.

Blame the rise of digital. Blame SEO and key words. Blame millennials. Blame conservative clients.

You can blame whoever you want to be honest.

Why?

Because this ad is quite recent. It's one of a handful produced for the 60th birthday of what we in Australia call the Kombi.

Kudos to all involved at DDB Paris. And of course a huge pat on the back to the client who signed it off.
