For the last few years, I have been using a well-travelled, much loved MacBook Pro, held together by sticky tape, with a non-functioning right arrow and camera. A few weeks ago, this wonderful machine was struck by lightning and died.
On the surface, this was a very sad and inconvenient thing. But I was able to borrow an iMac from a friend for a few days, and am now sitting in front of a replacement machine with everything the ethical copywriter could possibly want (except a guarantee that it will be easy to upgrade and recycled fully at the end of its working life).
Most important of all, with a functioning camera, I can now offer something I’ve been wanting to for many years: Global, personal overnight delivery.
So if you’re just about to leave your office in San Francisco, or Sydney, or some other exotic location, and an important client drops an urgent brief on your desk, you can call me in. By the time you get back the following morning, the work will be waiting for you and I can talk you through it, facetime to facetime.
If you need concepts, don’t worry. I am fortunate enough to know at least two of the best art directors on the planet.
