#CampaignShowcase – The best in creative marketing


At Concept Cupboard we’re utterly inspired with the creativity that we see each and every day. From our very own student and graduates through to campaigns being shared from half way around the world there are so many great examples of creative work that continue to influence and change peoples perceptions. That’s why we want to collect a showcase of awe inspiring marketing campaigns that we can share with the world and we want to hear from you. We want to know the marketing campaigns that shake things up, make you want to get up and go and most importantly make you proud to be creative.

The very best campaigns will get featured in a post on the site and your submission will be attributed  to you. All you’ve got to do is tweet a link to the campaign / image / video along with the hashtag #CampaignShowcase and we’ll do the rest. All entries will need to be in by the 31st August.

To give you an example, we’ve recently been blown away by Louis Vuittons campaign in tribute of Muhammad Ali. Mos Def is seen reciting a reel of some of the most memorable quotes from the titan of the boxing world and take our word for it, it’s powerful stuff. I highly recommend you take a look for yourself.

So here’s my entry to get the #CreativeShowcase kickstarted. Help us to inspire others.



Henry Millers Commandments

Henry Miller

I stumbled across these commandments from Henry Miller the other day an thought that they are principles not just to be used for writers, but for everyone. Take what you can from these wise words.

1. Work on one thing at a time until finished.

2. Start no more new books, add no more new material to “Black Spring.”

3. Don’t be nervous. Work calmly, joyously, recklessly on whatever is in hand.

4. Work according to Program and not according to mood. Stop at the appointed time!

5. When you can’t create you can work.

6. Cement a little every day, rather than add new fertilizers.

7. Keep human! See people, go places, drink if you feel like it.

8. Don’t be a draught-horse! Work with pleasure only.

9. Discard the Program when you feel like it — but go back to it the next day. Concentrate. Narrow down. Exclude.

10. Forget the books you want to write. Think only of the book you are writing.

11. Write first and always. Painting, music, friends, cinema, all these come afterwards.
