Featuring an interview with Matt Eastwood, formerly global CCO of J. Walter Thompson, and a Team Talk chat with WiTH Collective CDs Nicole Hetherington and Simon Fowler, this issue also contains a cartoon series starring a character who'll be familiar to Campaign Brief readers, in 'The Morally Superior Adventures of Old CD Guy'.
You'll also get some insight into what someone's really thinking when they're congratulating you on your idea getting up over theirs (hint: they hate you), and can pick which shade of green you turn when you see an idea you came up with winning gold for someone else.
Says Siobhan Fitzgerald, founder, Gabberish and associate creative director at M&C Saatchi: "Jealousy is a natural consequence of working in a competitive industry in which our work is highly visible. In this issue of Gabberish we're trying to figure out how to harness it in a positive way rather than the way that makes you feel like you're just a bit shit."
Says Jess Lilley, Gabberish co-editor and creative director at Leo Burnett: "Everyone among us has silently hoped our shinier, smarter nemesis would slip on the proverbial banana peel. Mostly, though, we gnash our teeth in silence and get on with the job. Unless we don't, loudly and anonymously. I love the idea of Old CD Guy ranting off into the sunset. Much more than that, I love Matt Eastwood's advice to stay positive and rise above it all."
