The evolution of this site
I’m a senior graphic designer of 25 years. I love to find the latest resources for design and advertising and have even written a book on the subject – ‘Extreme nouns‘ which is a ‘Nouns lists‘ brainstorming ebook for the Ad industry.
‘Advert ideas’ was originally the domain for my Australian graphic design business, but now acts as a resource for design, advertising and creative idea development.
The site will evolve into more links to practical resources as I transition my design traffic to the new website, so watch this space.
Experience: Design and Advertising
Over the last 25 years, I’ve worked in Adelaide, Sydney and now the Sunshine Coast. For 8 of those years, I was a senior graphic designer at BMF Advertising – Agency of the decade in Sydney. I learned the Ad business from some of the top creative directors and art directors in the business. Prior to that, I worked as a freelance illustrator and art director in Adelaide, 8 months at TVSN in TV graphics on the Photoshop Animation team as well as a stint at New Idea Magazine. Most of all, I’ve found myself in small to medium studio teams.
One of my proudest achievements was developing, promoting and creating my own brainstorming ebook – Extreme nouns – Ingredients for Advertising Ideas. This book containing lists of nouns has sold hundreds of copies worldwide. I’ve had to promote the ebook myself so it’s given me a great chance to immerse myself in Google AdWords, analytics and social advertising. Some sample content here.
