How to Trick Yourself into Tone of Voice Decisions

There’s a reason silly tone of voice workshops with games and Post-its exist.  You’re trying to get answers from a lateral approach.

An Introduction to AI Image Generation

Most of us will have come across a tweet or Facebook post claiming ‘I forced a bot to watch 1,000 hours of [cultural reference] and this is what it wrote’ along with a clearly human-written parody. It’s a meme. We think bots will always be inferior to human creativity, making hilarious gaffes when they attempt […]


How to Make a Remote Team Work for Everyone

Remote team working is brilliant for roles that require deep work, especially creatives who have to physically produce something. One of the struggles, however, is keeping everyone happy. When we’re not next to each other, the easy-breezy, natural team building is gone. We have to actively get that back somehow, or new starters and junior […]
