Smee Advertising was a long established, family owned agency handling
some quite good national brands and a mixed bag of local retail
took the job to get a start in London and to work on a major car
account. I enjoyed London but soon discovered that the agency left
a bit to be desired.
place was bureaucratic, uninspiring and a generally unpleasant place
to work. There was little scope for personal improvement, precious
few creative opportunities and no hope for the future.
made the best of it and in the short time I was there I learned
as much as I could. In particular, about how to craft large space
press ads and how to handle big budget photography.
experience wasnt a total waste of time.
