Our Clients Are Pretty Talented

December 8, 2016

One of my favourite parts about working at Bolster (besides the constant doggo talk and snacks) is that we’re lucky and get to work with some pretty talented musicians!

I was privileged to have gotten the chance to work on Flume’s new album via Future Classic, as well as the Australian leg of his massive world tour with Laneway Presents. Australia’s best electronic music export cleaned up at the ARIAs with five pointy awards to his name (Album of the Year, Best Male Artist, Best Dance Release, Best Pop Release & Best Independent Release). Plus a Grammy nom to his name (fingers crossed that turns into a Grammy win in Feb).

Also lucky to have worked with ARIA-winning champs Violent Soho, who nabbed two ARIAs.

Hats off to Remote Control & Caroline Australia, who I worked with on Australian advertising for this bunch of Grammy nominated legends: Adele, Bon Iver, Iggy Pop, Jack White and Parquet Courts. Other Bolster campaign managers also worked on Sia (via Inertia) and Radiohead (via Remote Control) who are also up for a chance to win a Grammy next year!

Full list of ARIA wins here, and Grammy noms over here.

Facebook Blueprint Certified

October 1, 2016

Facebook recently rolled out its shiny new Blueprint certification course, and of course I (and the rest of Bolster Digital crew) spent an arvo smashing the course. Achievement unlocked!

Screen Shot 2017-05-08 at 6.19.14 pmIt’s wonderful that Facebook is finally rolling out short courses and exams on best practices around advertising and page management. Topics include reach & frequency buys, video advertising, lead generation, dynamic advertising and more. For the longest time advertising professionals had to largely teach themselves (i.e. me, randomly pressing buttons to find out what things to do for the past six years or so) or take short courses at third party companies and hope that the teacher knew what they were talking about.

Also removes the guessing work for clients trying to figure out if agencies really know what the hell they’re talking about. Because lord knows there are a lot of cowboys out there.

I love taking portraits of new people, and had the pleasure of taking photos of Sophie Benjamin recently for her music adventures as Sailormouth, as well as professional pics for her journalism work. Hint: the bespectacled portrait is for her work pics.

Some of my favourites below. Check out her Facebook page for Sailormouth updates, and listen to her music from Spotify here.

2015 in 25 bullet points

December 31, 2015

  • Made it through the year with 17 plants still alive as of December 31. #greenthumb
  • Had a blast working at Shock Records with the best music team.
  • Ate watermelon for the first time in my entire life and didn’t mind it.
  • Darts released an album that we’re proud of and people seemed to not hate it but I still feel a bit awkward about it all.
  • Discovered Star Talk Radio like a good nerd.
  • Started working at Bolster Digital. So happy to have landed a job with an awesome team/work space/sweet treats/clients/campaigns. Ate a cronut at work today.
  • Had lots of fun shooting Two Halves, who absolutely killed it this year.
  • Saw a blue cactus.
  • Started making my bed regularly. Know that’s weird that but my parents would understand how this is noteworthy.
  • Headed over to BIGSOUND in Brisbane for the third time, and the very first time as a performer with Darts.
  • Stabbed myself. And then got drenched in blood.
  • Played at the Corner Hotel. BRAIN MELTING.
  • Bought a pretty new lense!
  • Practised my resting bitch face on camera here. And here. And pretty much everywhere.
  • Went to four weddings and no funerals.
  • Got Google AdWords certified!
  • Have kept a gratitude diary for the second half of the year. Not going to lie – a lot of it is food and I’m okay with that.
  • Played at Paradise Festival again. Highlight was the rave (first floor) cave. Low point was sleeping on a slope.
  • Dyed my hair pink. Again.
  • After a failed attempt at hot yoga with my neighbour (read: not enough coconut water in the world to ever make me do that again), I started doing room temperature yoga at home thanks to the internet. Goal for 2016: be able to do a beautiful downward dog. I still suck a lot.
  • Listened to lots of new music. My top two picks here on Happy blog.
  • Volunteered at Open House Melbourne. Had fun telling people where they could and could not go. Felt like Gandalf.
  • Spent possibly too much time drawing/buying art supplies.
  • Was in Elle Magazine ^___^
  • Drove a car only once this year.

White picket fences

October 30, 2015

Had a super productive morning last Sunday with Kat and Mish! We shot four separate looks for Two Halves with over two hours. Lots of exploring Richmond for pretty backdrops, followed by Halloween costume shopping with Kat (sneak peek of half my costume here) and then I sat on a punnet of blueberries. True story.

Anyway, first look with Michelle in Bonds, Chloe and Zara here. Full blog post here (with a few different pics). ENJOY.

Shot my first fashion show last night! Went to MSFW’s Emerging Designers Runway last night to take pics for Two Halves. Some pics below, a few others over at TH here! Felt incredibly unglamorous in my Docs and beanie but whatever :P
