New brief, New partners, New rules.
New brands, New ideas, New methods.
New work, New work, Better work.
Its the same repeated cycle, every fortnight, apart from the lucky few who have a slightly stronger grasp on

about those little toy trucks on my desk.
Seriously, if you’re ever stuck, just go out and buy a toy truck. It’s awesome.
