Roger Keynes: Jobless Writer

Will Think for Salary

After being "let go", this was an idea to get myself a new job, or an interview, or at the very least noticed... in the middle of the GFC. Hand made business cards were delivered to high end ad agency CDs and Senior Creatives. It was also run as an animated home page banner ad on local ad industry website So far, the job hasn't happened, but new ad agency contacts and quite a few freelance jobs have.

Like your thinking OOWAG, but sadly no.
Just a spin on an obvious angle... without sacrificing dignity. ;)

While I'm not entirely devoid of empathy, cardboard signs are overused in advertising. This is one explanation as to why he hasn't found work yet.

Way over done, doesn't show much creativity

Good is the enemy of great.

Translation: I am an unemployed, heavy-drinking, formerly overpaid creative, who wants to convey the attitude of a hungry junior, but yet makes it abundantly clear that unless you pay me like the diva I am, I won't lift a finger. And my ideas are stale... in fact... I steal them from the homeless.

I am not a heavy drinker.
Not on freelance income!
And, best of luck with your cursor problem. ;)

Done to death, very often by students. One was made even in my class, just like yours - "will think for salary".
And, cardboard signs are overused everywhere, so I wouldn't turn my head for this one either.

Like this, you mean?
It's talking to CD's. Not teachers or students.
Either way, let me know how it goes for them... because this puppy is still working, nearly five years later. Peace

The concept is kinda done and donera and is not compelling to me at all. At any rate I see you have beached yourself at Einstein Da Vinci. A name that offers so much but delivers so little. Good luck! :)

Make yourself known if you're in SA, DonnyD.
So I can put a face to the tone! :) Rog
