Holla is here

Mark & Holla

Holla started work today at my agency. Regular readers might at one point or another read his “colorful” comments on the blog or maybe his posts in the forum. I met him in person a few weeks ago and I found out he was actually a copywriter. Since I had been looking for a copywriter to partner up with at work, he ended up applying here and getting the job. We are like Ponch and Jon from CHiPs except Holla is still missing a bike.

Find 20

Find 20

I just stuck 20 of these post-it notes around our office. Whichever employee can find the location of all 20 post-it’s gets two free cans of Shani. Most are easy to find, while some are going to be impossible. Just a little fun around the office.

Red Bull Chicks

Post by Mark

Two Red Bull chicks are in the office now giving out Red Bull cans and talking about some offer or something. I would rather have two Hardees chicks giving out Roast Beef N Cheddars and talking about their offers instead.

Nat is lucky

Post by Mark

Just spoke to Nats boss at work, he wants to buy some arcade machines for their office and Nat told him I had contacts. I repeat that, he wants to buy some arcade machines for the office! Her new company is starting to sound like one of those Silicon Valley start ups

Haha this is cool, if you don’t want people at work to know you are browsing the web then use this link. Its makes all sites look like you have a document open in Microsoft Office. [Link]

The KREA

Post by Mark

Krea

Yesterday night I attended the KREA which stands for Kuwait Rewards Excellence in Advertising. I hate attending such events and yesterday was actually my first time attending one. I prefer being low profile and as Bruce Mau says, “Don’t enter awards competitions. Just don’t. It’s not good for you”. But, yesterday was an exception and I had to attend. A good friend of mine was one of the judges at the event and he was only in Kuwait for a few days and the only 2 days I would be able to see him were the night before the event and during the event. So, I ended up attending the event so I could see more of him.

Unlike what I was expecting, the event turned out to be pretty fun. I ended up seeing a lot of old friends and the whole thing felt like a high school reuninion. I was sitting with Nat and some friends at work on a table on the first row and we spent most of the time joking around and having some fun. The event honestly was a disaster although people were telling me this one was slightly better then the Kuwait Awards that was held a few months back. There were a lot of presentation mess ups and the whole thing didn’t feel very organized. There were also some fishy moments which didn’t help with the awards credibility. Agencies were only allowed to submit work that was from 2004 up till now yet there was one agency I know of that submitted work that was prior to 2004 and they ended up winning awards! I found that very shady.

Overall though it was a good night for my agency, we won a whole bunch of awards and I actually got on stage to receive a couple.. not a smart move for someone who would rather remain low profile. But it was fun and I was dressed up very formally which I only do like once every blue moon. The event finished before midnight but by the time I got home (it was held at the Hilton Resort) it was past 12 so I just quickly hit the sack. I don’t think I will ever attend another awards ceromony but atleast now I know incase I do it will probably be fun.
