Hey thurr! Been a while, hey? But I’m cool with that. Been busy, real busy. Work, that kind of thing – and then this, which I managed to help with while ‘resting’ between jobs…! Glad to see the new WeLove9am website come to fruition.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 2,100 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 4 years to get that many views.
So I went ahead and did it again.
The Kennedys asked so nicely, it was hard to refuse them.
A short story this time, check me one time and let me know what you think…
Got an email late last week asking me to once again enter W+K Amsterdam’s internship competition ‘The Kennedys’, as someone who made last year’s shortlist.
Not sure how long the list was, but I know nearly 1,000 budding creatives entered, vying for just six places.
Check out http://thekennedys.nl/ to enter this year, or ‘like’ them on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Kennedys/163093687090524
Idea Bounty has finally sent my Bronze Award certificate for my Bertolli idea. Only thing is, I’m not actually sure which idea the award is for as I submitted two….
Any ideas – which do you think is better, or has more ’legs’ at least?
Yes, I know another Idea Bounty entry!!
Well, for anyone who wants to experiment and create something that just might earn you some credibility, I have to say it’s ideal.
However, this time I enlisted the help of aspiring Art Director, Marcus Royall, who worked with me to develop the concepts and imagery.
Check out the new portfolio tabs above and fingers crossed!
Three entries this time – ideas created for a Top Gear magazine free covermount giveaway.
Let me know what you think!
Got something worth saying, so figured I’d make the effort :)
My Paddy Power idea has been awarded a Bronze by Idea Bounty.
They’ve even give me a nice certificate to proudly display: Dave Barton Paddy Power Bronze
My second award from the crowdsourcing site. Any sort of recognition is good, but coming from Idea Bounty it’s great.
If nothing else, it indicates my ideas cut the mustard among other creatives.
So, I’m pleased :)
That’s two IB Bronzes now, so hopefully a Silver next time.
After that, ONE show here I come!
