An Exploration of Branding, Design and Cultural Trends

Where the hell am I?

Apologies my dear readers for being completely M.I.A. and not providing you with any of my "new year-type" wisdom. Alas I have no exotic holiday vacation photos to share with you. But I know you don't come to my blog for that because freelancing ain't no vacation. No, the lesson I'm going to share with you now is a very good one. That what goes around comes around. Over the last two years I have made countless connections, attending networking events, talks and lunches even when all I wanted to do was curl up in my bed and watch Downton Abbey. At every freelance job, I absorbed like a sponge, the wisdom of my superiors while offering a unique perspective gained from my varied assignments. And while there were times when I thought I was better at getting others jobs than myself, in the end karma has come back to me in a positive way. So I haven't been blogging because in between celebrating the holidays with my family and attending a low key Christmas party, I've been working. Multiple freelance assignments that came to me at once (such is the freelance lifestyle). So far, 2013 has been fantastic and I have a good feeling that despite predictions of a slowed economy and continued political shenanigans, 2013 is going to be a good year.

So speaking of karma, a few very talented Miami Ad School kids have put this blog together as a resource for creatives looking to get into advertising. I'm sure there will be many helpful nuggets even for those looking to get into strategy.
