We've all been there. The agency (that's us) is the worst client - we are picky, demanding and critical. The Christmas card is a once a year demonstration of creativity to everyone you've worked with and want to work with ... no pressure. Some of that creative juice must be ordered right away, in eggnog flavor please. Charlie Brown, can you help us?

Not only should a website provide information, but it should engage and entertain. Well, if you're looking for a good time http://www.gorgeous.co.uk/ takes the cake. Building a website that communicates your brand, services and personality can sometimes be an overwhelming thought, but the old rule of k.i.s.s (keep it simple stupid) holds true even in this case. The simplicity of the site and humor at every turn leaves you wanting more. It's just kittens, but with a whole lot of personality.
PS. I'm not even a cat person, but this is makes me giggle.

Where do all the great creative ideas come from? For some time now it's been a well kept secret, agencies are very proud of this and win awards to prove it. But thanks (yea, thanks a lot) to an agency called Rubber Republic, they've pulled back the covers ... or should I say shared the juicy details. For some of you this will be a learning experience and for some ... well, you will gasp at the thought of clients finding out your little secret. The substance we call creative juice CAN be bottled. That's right, designers and art directors have being lying all along saying, "it's hard to get creative juices flowing - I just can't do this is minutes you know". Not so. Be warned, the video below contains some material unsuited for clients. Agency discretion is advised.
