Beepocalypse now!

If you haven’t yet heard, our honey bees have been mysteriously disappearing on mass. Even Einstein knew that if they go, they’re taking us with them! Without going too far down this sulky road, know that help is at hand. Amsterdam is slowly but surely becoming part of the solution in reversing this Beepocalypse, and… More.

Take the red pill

I’d like to chaperone you to an audio visual trip of the mind, body and soul. A chamber opera for Soprano, Electric Trombone, Pilates Trapeze-table, Electronics and DJ. Kimisis is an introduction presentation by Australian Opera Director Konstantin Koukias and an entrée to the feast of original works that will follow.

Desperate Dave’s Love Story

Sometimes the best way to respond to some silly immigration law, is to make an amusing campaign that’s just as silly. This is Desperate Dave’s Love Story – in response to being told that the only possibility for him to legally remain in the Netherlands is if he has a Dutch or European partner. Despite that… More.

I ADsterdam

This was the image that featured on the cover of UK magazine – The Drum, who recently published a 48 page supplement on Amsterdam’s advertising, design and digital industries. They spoke to some of the city’s top agencies (eh hem, including yours truly) to find out why the Dutch capital is such a hotbed for creativity and… More.

Colour me happy…it’s festival season!

I love festival season in the Netherlands – it’s the time of year when this humble land likes to cock its colourful feathers and show off its hybrid creativity and endless imagination. I must admit that I’ve spent alot of my recreational time as a Buitenlander, plowing Amsterdam’s underground habitat and basking in all its… More.

Australia is infamously known for its dangerous species, from the great white shark to the deadly red back spider. Now there appears to be a new threat… More.

Modern day slavery

The most deeply moving human stories you will ever hear are beautifully told by photographer Lisa Kristine in this 20min TED TALK. The atrocity of modern day slavery is something each and every one of us need to know about, and as consumers ensure we make responsible choices. Those of us who work within advertising, design,… More.

Don’t be a tosser

I took this picture on a recent visit back to Australia. I walked out of the airport terminal, happy to smell the familiarity of my homeland again. And was greeted by this government warning / piece of personal advice. It made me smile, I was home. [*a ‘tosser’ is Australian slang commonly used to describe… More.

Robodock Festival 2012

One of the things I love most about living in Amsterdam is continually being amazed and inspired by the astute people, recycled spaces and impressive events that take place in this little creative village. If you don’t deviate away from your routine, scenic canal bike-route to and from the office, you might miss out on… More.
