So you may have noticed it's been a bit quiet on the old lemon front.
This is mainly due to the fact that Mark and I are splitting as a creative team. He has decided to pursue other ventures so I am a lonely Lemon. It's a shame as we have done quite well, but it's exciting to see where I'll end up next.
We are staying as a team at Wunderman for the time being, but I am on the hunt for a new partner.
Although I'm a copywriter here, I feel as though I'm an art director at heart. My ideal job would be to do both, but that doesn't seem to really happen.
So if you know anyone, or fancy teaming up yourself, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
Follow my new blog here or stalk me on twitter here
Thanks to all our followers over the past year :)

Last Tuesday night I attended this little number - Industry VS Graduates, organised by Shellsuit Zombie. The venue - Old Blue Last was pretty cool and the small room was packed, with coloured badges everywhere - distinguishing industry from graduate. I thought this was a really good idea as with similar events I've been to, it's hard to tell who's who. I found myself somewhere in the middle.
It was a good night, with a great atmosphere. The loud music however, gave it more of a club feel, rather than a networking one. But I met some really interesting people from different creative backgrounds. The idea of 'VS' is that anyone could challenge anyone to anything. The main talking point of the night ended up being the challenge of the 'most imaginatively drawn willy'.
And now HelloYouCreatives is doing a meet up too, so I might go and see what that's all about.
You can find their upcoming event on Facebook. Maybe I'll see you there.

Recently I saw this set of great photographs by Matt Stuart, entitled 'happy accidents'. A glimpse of funny moments in life you would rarely catch with your own eyes. These are my favourite images but you can see more of his work at http://www.mattstuart.com/
There's also this ad for Twix with a similar style:
Not sure whether the two are linked, but I really like the concept. It is, perhaps more effective through photography as you really get the feeling that you miss these kind of moments all the time.Anyway, they made me smile : )

It's an exciting day as our first online ads are up for Land Rover.
They tie in with the Winter Olympics and can be found on the Times and Yahoo.
Check them out at http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/
You may have seen this already. A great tactical ad for Puma football for the upcoming game/valentines weekend. A group of hard-faced looking men chanting Savage Gardens 'Truly, Madly, Deeply' to their other halves to apologise for spending Valentines with their beloved football team instead of them. Genius. Another winner from Droga5.

A nice PR stunt from Saatchi & Saatchi for beer brand Andes. At first I thought the idea was a but of a cliché, but when you see the guys using it, it's brilliant. A great way to reach their target audience. I would have loved to try one out.

It's been almost a month since our last post. It's a bit late for the Happy New Year/ New Years Resolutions post so here's something to make you smile.
Our inspiration for the year ahead, I present, Mr Croissant.
This little guy has caused a fair bit of discussion at work, like why isn't he called monsieur croissant? why does he speak English? and why is he being tricked into being someones breakfast?
Poor Mr Croissant
