Friday. This time we head for uber-cool Shoreditch and The Biscuit Building – home to one of the most avant-garde agencies in town – Mother.
Our ex-students Hannah and James have been doing nice stuff there together for nearly two years, now . Since they graduated from Falmouth in 2012 Hannah had previously been at BBH, while James had been at Agency Republic. James had to rush off to do some work but Hannah and Ben Heap took us through the Mother ethos and showed some great recent work they’d been doing. Being the guy who controls the hiring of new people at Mother, Ben was a good person to learn from too.
Finally, we shot over to Hatton Garden to meet Dom and Joyce, ex–students from 2011 and 2012 respectively. Joyce was a fairly recent recruit at Grey, but Dom has been there for almost three years, now. They introduced us to one of Grey’s Creative Directors, Jamie and a fun hour’s presentation of Grey advertising madness culminated in a few beers and wine. Thanks, Jamie!
To round off a highly successful and pleasantly exhausting week, that evening we all headed over to The Chandos, a huge pub near Charing Cross, for a several beers etc. No photos of this event, sadly, due to the effects of said beers.
