Guinness is literally my favourite pint to order. Anytime I go to a pub, it’s the Black Stuff for me. So I’m happy to see the brew advertised by work that I really like!

Great news – I’m writing SEO web content for a creative agency in South Melbourne, 23 Digital.
Here I’m employed part time to improve Google rankings for SMEs in Melbourne and the wider Victoria area.
Trained to write meta titles, descriptions and ace copywriting skills, my creative abilities are now being honed to produce healthy ROI results for clients.
When I went travelling, landed in Melbourne and started freelance copywriting, the dream of being employed as a copywriter in an agency sometimes seemed too far. But it’s true what they say. Follow your heart and the rest will work out (or something like that).
Plus its next door to a gym so it’s time to get healthy again after about 8 months of travelling.

Do you really badly want loads of awards to line the walls of your home and the desks of your workplace, but are afraid you’ll never be up to the task to actually win them?
Just print it out.
Ok I know I’m already back on the subject of 3D printing, but ad agency Rethink has caught my attention to well for me to simply ignore.
They’ve gone and printed out themselves 811 Gold Lion Awards using the technology, along with 194 Silver One Show pencils!
Suddenly not only can you no longer trust a person or company’s digital presentation of themselves, but now even the physical evidence of their achievements will be questionable.
