March Update

In this issue:

NOMINEES AND WINNERS
EASTER EGGS
END OF MONTH DRINKS
-------------------------------

NOMINEES AND WINNERS
The Collective is always delighted to receive good news to pass along, and this month we have two reasons to be cheerful:

Dennis Zijlstra has been nominated in the 'Best Crossmedia Campaign' for the Dutch webawards (spinawards) as part of the creative team on a project for the Secret Service (AIVD) (via EuroRSCG). For details see http://www.spinawards.nl/index.php/page/12?mod%5B63%5D%5Bcategory%5D=10&mod%5B63%5D%5Bsubmission_id%5D=282 and click on the video.

Martin Mol's reign as Pitch-Winning King shows no sign of ending as he has just won his 5th client pitch in a row! This time up against 5 other agencies for a big pharmaceuticals client in the Russian market. How does he do it? Martin can't resist a challenge and puts 200% effort into his work. This isn't the first time that one of his alternative 'off-brief' concepts has triumphed over his and others' 'on-brief' solutions.
Go Martin!!!!!!!!!!!

News such as this appears on the monthly newsletter we send to our clients, giving an extra boost to the freelancers concerned. So if you've got something impressive to share then don't keep it to yourself! Email your good news to Wilma wilma@thecollective.net.

EASTER EGGS

Ah yes, another festive event, another reason to bestow gifts upon our clients to remind them that The Collective is the place to come to when they need freelancers.


This time Wilma did the honours with delivering the eggs to our clients, which were accompanied by a gift card for which Fraser Bailey supplied the copy “You crack the egg. We’ll crack the briefs”
