Grateful for Club de Fromage – the blue cheese, gorgonzola and stinking bishop of all cheese fests. Loved every friggin’ stinkin’ moment of it! / If anything is going to pull at your heartstrings this Christmas, this ad will be it. =) Captured here, is a very precise feeling and memory I believe we can all relate to. Wonderful and heartwarming. Well done, Adam & Eve. / Jo, thanks for preparing dinner and heating up the pizzas, onion bhajis and samosas. Though I don’t think these were anywhere near as fully appreciated as they were at 4am in the morning! =p

Grateful for being invited to attend The Reel event at Cafe 1001 tonight. Free entry. Free wine. Free films = Good company. Good talent. Good show. Good night! / Grateful for the time I spent at Irresistible as a fresh fish out of uni – so eager and goddamn determined! Great to see you guys doing well and I love the new set-up =) To be introduced to the new marketing/PR manager and have her say “Oh, so YOU’RE Krissa – the one that got away!” was one of the highlights and most rewarding moments of my day. So thanks! =) / Thank you for choosing my design/concept for the Caboodle Collective. It still gets me every time =) / Thanks Kat for flashing your magic key and getting us into Pizza East for cheap. Although, it was so good I would have paid full price for it anyway! Will have to come back next time when it’s a bit earlier to try out the rest of the menu and dessert! =p
Day 103: Muller’s Wunderful Stuff, Graham Crackers, £1 coins and the thrill of attending a new yoga class…
November 3, 2011 § Leave a comment
So I have a love-hate relationship with the new Muller Wunderful Stuff ad campaign. I love Muller yoghurt (though admittedly I haven’t actually bought Muller-branded yoghurt in a while!). I love the TV commercial, which is the most epic production I have seen in a long long time. I love how I pre-empted the craze and just knew from the second I saw the first opening shots of the ad, that this campaign was going to be “friggin HUGE!” (£20m huge to be precise!) And now, 3 weeks after it apparently aired simultaneously across 60 difference channels (anyone say friggin HUGE??), I love-hate how it’s following me and turning up everywhere I go: on big ass billboards near Finsbury Park; alongside motorways on the way to and from Cardiff; on the front, back and inner front and inner back sections of a freebie magazine… This ad is everywhere I look!! It’s distribution and cultural penetration is every marketer’s dream… I love it. It’s almost sickening how much I love it. I’m just jealous. Because this is the sort of mega-monster ad campaign every adman dreams of working on… Or so I would imagine =p Oh, but this is an appreciation blog. Right! Gotcha! I guess then, that today I am grateful for Muller. And I am grateful that I still get excited about these things. It shows I still love what I do =) / Grateful for Graham Crackers (because they make great s’mores!) and grateful for Graham Bates. Thanks G for all the teamwork and focus today. Never thought Arnie would be such a motivator at work! 😉 / Thanks Bryony for lending me the £1 coin for the lockers! / Thanks, Jennifer, for the change in routine and taking the time and opportunity to sloooow everything down. You know it’s a good class when you do something for the first time =) / Who knew I could be grateful for having a broken scanner? 😉
