November & Matisse

Matisse - from the Metropolitan Museum site

It's coming up for only 2 years in London yet it feels like a lifetime ago that I left Canada to do some work on this side of the pond. Ogilvy London is a very different place from when I started, so progress is being made. The conversations are quite different even though frustration abounds. That's advertising. The system is built from, and in, chaos. Which is lovely.

Recently I've been thinking about brand restarts, staffing up and art. Not always in that order, and sometimes not at all. Visit The Met and Art Tattler, they're a welcome breath of fresh air and brain food. And I'm very keen on the Gerhard Richter exhibition at the Tate.

The world is being shaken this year. I might as well shake with it.
