The future

In Copywriting, Creative, Inspire on July 4, 2013 at 6:45 am

I took this shot when I was boarding a plane en route to New York.

It’s from an ad campaign that HSBC ran.

The message is clear, and certainly not new, but spoke to me at that moment in time. You see, I was on the precipice of a shift in my own life.

It wasn’t so much the words, but the idea behind the words and the depth of it that made me literally stop in my tracks, whip out my trusted iPhone, and snap the shot.

I wanted to share it because it’s so simple, yet so true. And sometimes, we get so bogged down by the intricacies of daily life that we forget.

So let’s remind ourselves.

The future is full of opportunity.

Artists and creatives paint, sing, dance, sculpt, produce, and create; with one ultimate goal: to share. To be heard. And for some of us, it’s therapeutic. Cathartic.

Cheeky branding

Making my way down to New York City’s High Line, I came across this little gem of cheeky branding.

I had to stop for a shot.

I call this one ‘Three tarts on Ninth Avenue’.

Now, there’s a play on words!

Cheeky advertizing

In Advertizing, Copywriting, Marketing on June 21, 2012 at 1:41 am

Saw this whilst walking The High Line in New York City. Caught my eye, had a laugh, thought it was cheeky advertizing.

And simply had to share!
