An Application.

The recent months in work I had a sort-of...serendipity. 

It all begins here, again. 
It is two years since I joined Clemenger as a fresh graduate, and it is too long since I had a new goal. 

I want to work for great people.
I want to work with great people. 
And above all, I want to do great work for wonderful people. 

Rory Sutherland, Lauren Connolly and George Lois,
this is my application*.

*application applies to any job opening you see fit for a NZ ad kid on the search for a wonderful age of advertising.

Woman, kicks ass.

Strolling through the oh-so-Christmas themed shops this year, I found myself rolling my eyes at the childrens gifts that were quite blatantly saying...

look like me and you'll be happy...rely on a man named Ken and you'll live in me, play with me, and you're on the path to success.

This woman, this kick-ass woman is the kind of Mother I want to one day be.

Photographer and mother Jaime Moore searched high and low for creative inspiration to take photos of her 5-year-old daughter Emma but found most of the ideas were how to dress your little girl like a Disney princess. It got her thinking about some real women for her daughter to look up to, whether that be a pilot, a doctor, or even an astronaut.
Then she did what I can only describe as kick-ass. Below are the five inspirational women she dressed her daughter as. Then scroll down to see the bonus sixth photo because it made me smile so much.
