Don't give up on me just yet!

I know, I know, why would you come back here with a blog this miserable? ICAD Upstarts has been keeping us really busy but that means I have loads to show you...soon. I  promise to fill it with loads of very interesting things.

Please accept this as a peace offering

brief one

Cawley Nea\TBWA have given us our first brief and what a brief. One of us lucky upstarts will have an ad made and on tv by October. I know I was in shock too!

The Client//Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA)           

Description//For the first time in history the entire IMMA building is going to be given over to Ireland's national modern collection - every wing, every floor, every gallery. There will be 300 works on show, the vast majority of which are Ireland's modern collection but will also be accompanied by contextualising piceces, for example Eileen Gray furniture.
The show co-insides with IMMA's 20th year.

Message//1. What & where is IMMA? 2. Come & see your own art collection

Kooky not stately, inspiring not scholarly, self-mocking not pompous.

Target Audience//The unconverted

1 x 20sec TV ad

Other points to consider//How can the TV ad be backed up via digital and guerilla marketing?

Note//This is a real brief. From the concepts put forward, one concept will be chosen to be made into an ad. All advertising Upstarts will participate. Pearse McCaughey will act as Creative Director & Fiona Kinsella as Production Supervisor, Hugo Jellet from IMMA will be on the selection panel.

I'm off to IMMA to get inspired, no time to waste!

virgin blogger

testing, testing, one, two, three

So this is what it's like to blog, I am new to this whole blogging lark. It's not that I'm not partial to reading the odd blog or two, but I've never had the urge to create my own, this is my first fling. However, I am doing it all for a greater good.

Tomorrow is the first day that the twenty ten ICAD upstarts are meeting & I want to make sure I have my homework done! I am one of the lucky ones who gets to work with six of the top advertising agencies in Ireland, to gain some experience, contacts & a bunch of new work. We even get our very own mentors. Each week we'll get a new brief to work on & I'll be popping up the fruits of my labour for all to behold.

So it's off to Bonfire tomorrow to see what's in store.
