Only a day and a half left of Movember. At Palmer Hargreaves a few of us have been doing it this year (I know their moustaches put mine to shame). 

It's been a fun month, very inchy but well worth it raising £35.00 for the fantastic charity so far, here's my mo space: It's such a great idea that the charity has created, and I'm pleasantly surprised how many people take part (it's huge), look around and you'll see someone taking part, if you aren't.

We've also entered ourselves into a competition 'The Drum' are running, with the winners getting a £100 donation towards their Movember efforts. If you have a minute, please can you vote for us (look out for the posing picture above). There's some funny tash's from other agencies too.

I can't wait till I can shave it off now on the 1st of December.

Last Thursday evening, I was at the Creative Out of Home Awards (COOH) with my Creative Director from Palmer Hargreaves (PH). It's my first piece of ad work that has been shortlisted for an award, so it was an exiciting evening. Here we are checking out Emirates stadium, where the event was held. 

It was for an ambient sticker I worked on at PH, that was put up in tough locations e.g a tattoo parlours window as a welcome sign for the brand Isuzu Motors for their new pick-up truck the
Isuzu D-Max. The copy reads 'Isuzu D-Max Drivers welcome' 'A tough truck for tough people'.

Our work was nominated alongside huge campaigns for Nike, Disney and Warner Bros. But we sadly lost out to the Grand Prix winner on the night. It was a real pleasure to be placed alongside such huge award winning campaigns. Here is a full list of the awarded work.

Sorry, I've been reasonably quiet recently. I've been moving into a new flat in Birmingham from my shared house in Leamington Spa.

I'm currently reworking my illustration and art direction pages on my website, for a better user experience, but for now I've linked my art direction page to my Cargo Collective site. I know it's been ages in the making, but now you can finally see some of my advertising work.

In the past I've seen people grow some amazing moustaches and it's always made me envious; I never thought I'd be able to grow my own... until now. This month, I'm giving it a go for Movember. I've put my razor away for this fantastic charity, so let's see what happens. My picture is me five days in. It’s going to be a long month.
