Doodling my heart out about all things 'creative' ...

Turns out, life's really unpredictable!
Come tomorrow, I'll be starting my writing career at this agency called 'Origami'. I know it's 'news' because when my last post had happened, Ogilvy had happened. But WPP (the global advertising conglomerate that runs O&M) is on a hiring freeze. So I was only their bench-strength, meaning, if and when the global hiring embargo will be lifted (thanks to the recession!), I'll be given a look-in. Till such time that Sir Martin Sorrell decides to say, "let's hire", I won't be on the Ogilvy rolls. So I politely told them that I'll spend some time writing in this other agency that had also made me an offer. So that's about Ogilvy.
About Origami: I'm really kicked about working at this place. This video on Origami that appeared on CNBC-TV18 a few months back should tell you people why I am really looking forward to tomorrow.
