Cannes Virgin seeks founding client – Monday.
Went to Thenetworkone’s event.
There I met Julian again who kindly introduced me to various fellow independent agencies.
There were guys from all over the world.
China, Brazil and Amsterdam to name a few.
They all seemed to be loving doing their own thing but told me it takes time to build even a small shop.
That rang true as after three months of chasing new business for Loaf & Egg I have three great leads and two meetings lined up.
All are for brands we’d love to work on and are products made int the UK which is also something I believe in passionately.
We ended the get together with a lot of business card swapping and might end up collaborating at some point in the future, so well worth going.
I then checked out the scene on the Croisette and was inspired by the stands.
There’s a lot of mobile activity which is a big trend this year and a fabulous blow up Lion.
Of all the eye catching stands you just can’t beat an inflated plastic mammal.
No doubt some drunken art director will try and capture it and take it swimming in the sea.
