The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]


A Year In A Blink …

So today is a year since I left Wieden and – in 6 days – Shanghai.

That’s incredible.

In some ways it seems it was just a few weeks and in other ways, it feels like a lifetime ago.

While it was absolutely time to start a new adventure – something LA and Deutsch have kindly given me – I still miss China and Wieden very much because I had 7 years of brilliant things happen in my life [such as this] and career [such as this and this] there … though I have it on good authority this sentimentality is only one way, mainly because those stickers I left behind are still being discovered.

And they will for many more years to come.

Cue: Evil laugh.

The gift that keeps on giving whether people like it or not.

I’ve still got it … even when no one wants it.

Though in an act of karma revenge, I am spending my anniversary in Kansas. About as different to Shanghai as is physically possible.

Comment by Rob

Karma wins. Unless you live in Kansas.

Comment by DH

Their fault for being in Kansas.
