Ad Week Pt. 2 – Sir Richard Branson

Inspired by great minds – Me! (on left), Sir Richard Branson (right)

Went down to the Toronto Filmport today to hear Sir Richard Branson’s ‘live’ interview with Toronto Star.  If you don’t know Sir Richard Branson… I’m sure you have heard of one of his 360 companies: Virgin Music, Radio, Airlines, Cellphones, Cola. etc.
He had a lot of great stuff to say about the recession as an opportunity for people to become entrepreneurial. Virgin Mobile was one of the first accounts I worked on with Matchstick back in 2005. So I personally know and love the Virgin brand.  My favorite thing he said was: “I love every minute of my life”. 
I will post the snipets shortly.. but for now!

Yum! Wild Mushroom + Onion Confit 😀

Congrats to Due North the Toronto communications agency team that won the student competition. Up to 150 students were mentred by firms to develop Virgin Mobile’s RE*Generation creative campaign.  Judged by Virgin Unite and Sir Richard Branson.  The competitors included DDB, Cossette, Bos, Quiller and Blake, Grey Canada, Ogilvy & Mather, Starcom, Leo Burnett, TBWA, Publicis, Agency 59, Lowe Roche, Bensimon Bryne, BBDO, Cundari Group and Due North. I had a feeling that they were going to win! So I snapped a photo of the team just moments before the announcement:
The winning slogan was: Your ticket in is their ticket out. The campaign will launch nationally in 2009 with Astral media.
So in a few hours, I will be off to the Steam Whistle Brewery for a Puma fashion show and a concert by Kardinal Offishall!
Pics and video to come soon!  Details here.

Here’s me and Kardi at Cartel for his album launch in Sept. Here is the post.

Today I went to visit the brand spanking new Winks – Toronto’s first lash bar. It’s just off the Danforth – You can either get off at Chester and walk right or Broadview and walk left. The address is 272A Danforth on the northside, up the stairs and hang-a-left. After reading about Winks on WWW, I went to pay the girls a visit and got some wam bam bat bat bat’s!
I love wearing lashes and even though I have long lashes by typical ‘Asian” standards, I like to turn it up an extra megawatt with some DUO & falsies. But for $55, you can get these bad boys and they last up to 2 months!

This is a major trend in Korea, Japan and China. So Toronto girls, listen up! There are 3 kinds: Individuals, Flares, Decor – Mine are ‘individuals’ ($150). Perfect for a special occasion… like Tuesday! You know it’s a special occasion up in here like e’ry day! These would look dope with the Circle Lens, I blogged about in Oct 08.

Beauty… when you look into a woman’s eyes and see what is in her heart. ~Nate Dircks
