"Sometimes I wonder if our media and marketing people understand this rapidly diversifying country. There is a very strong Anglo-Australian force in the advertising industry with a healthy representation of young British professionals"
Harold Mitchell seems to be mining a similar vein to one I considered last year, regarding the ‘British-ness’ of the Australian communications industry, and whether that’s a good or a bad thing.
I liked this identity for the The Project Factory by Daniel Dittmar. Check it out, give it a chance — you probably will too. Or maybe not, no drama.

AGDA Awards — Top Twenty Five.
Well, this year’s AGDA Awards have been announced. Award books that kick around the library are all well and good but online is the way to go, if your mission is to put creativity from down under on top. Finally there’s a website that catalogues and documents the work (similar to the NZ Best Awards), something sadly missing from previous year’s AGDA awards. It’s got a few loose screws and misbehaves a little from time to time, but it’s a very welcome sight indeed, and besides, the flaws make it all the more endearing, right? Go and have a look here.
