Tom Carter explains how he and his creative partner made themselves memorable on placement.

Think different. Yup, stolen from Apple (TBWA\Chiat\Day) but I couldn’t think of a more relevant quote that summarises the stuff I’m about to talk to you about. In fact, it is probably the most relevant quote to work by as a creative person but that's another story all together.

"What if they don’t remember me?"

Anyway, after landing my first ever placement with my partner at music based agency Frukt I celebrated with a beer and began, as most critical thinkers do, imagining every potentially shit scenario that could occur over the two week period. Some pretty ridiculous things popped into my head (we won’t go there).
