My ZAK Part II. We asked Matt to show us something that inspires him. He told us this lovely little story. "During university I almost dropped out of my graphics course but I found myself falling back in love with design after I started looking at brand identity. 'Brand New' was and is a part of something that keeps my passion alive. It's a website that I visit daily to get my creative juices flowing." #myzak#zakagency#agencylife @ucllc

Our CMO Laura's essential is tech and she believes we're already in the midst of the rise of the machines. But it doesn't scare her. In fact, she loves it. In fact, she wants it.
For the second instalment of Laura’s My ZAK we asked her to tell us about someone or something that inspires her. She said: “Raf Simons. It’s his The constant quest for innovation and his strength of character.” #myzak#zakagency#agencylife @rafsimons
Next up on My ZAK is the lovely Laura Derbyshire, Chief Marketing Officer here at ZAK. Laura's advice to anyone starting out in the industry is "Keep things simple and have fun." Stay tuned for more from Laura this week. #myzak#zakagency#agencylife
Garreth Carter, ACD, over and out.
“My essential is your essential. It’s a phone. It’s a computer. It’s an infinite song machine. It’s a stills camera, it’s a video camera, it’s editing software, it’s the full works of Shakespeare and bunny ear filters, it’s a freak’n tv, a free chat with your mate at the other end of the planet, it’s all the weirdness your mind could imagine. It’s knowledge, it’s power, it’s just a f*cking phone man. And if you travelled back in time and handed my 15-year-old self this device, I’d have known then that I was holding the only goddamn essential the future needed.”
For Garreth’s My ZAK Part II he tells us what inspires him.
“In I942 a ridiculously talented 21-year old was given an unheard of movie deal: to direct, write and star in his own creation with full editorial control.
The Chinese puzzle of the movie ‘Citizen Kane’ explored the question, can power, influence and happiness ever truly coexist?
The movie bombed. But from 1962 onwards, it’s been repeatedly voted the most influential film of all time.
Scorched by his own talent and inability to conform, Orsen Welles spent his final years voicing characters in the Transformers cartoon, sleeping on a friend’s sofa, and he died broke.
Can power, influence and happiness truly coexist? Rosebud baby, rosebud.”
This week on My ZAK we'll be hearing from Garreth Carter, our Associate Creative Director. We asked him for a piece of career advice for someone starting out in the industry. Here's what he said: "We work in advertising. It's not a life-threatening situation. Be brave or wear more beige." #myzak#zakagency#agencylife
Today we’re delving into the inner workings of a creative’s mind. We asked Hannah what inspires her, what gets her creative juices flowing. She said this, and drew a gorgeous illustration to prove it: “Everything, whether it's an encyclopaedia of garden plants or an art gallery.” #purplerain#purplebrain#myzak#zakagency#agencylife
This week on My ZAK you’ll be getting to know the fabulous Hannah Calverley, our super talented designer. Her advice to anyone starting out in the industry? “No one’s going to hand it to you on a plate.” #myzak#zakagency#agencylife
