This ain't no disco


When I was a wee lad hawking around my home-made folio I thought all ad agencies would look like they did on US sitcoms.

Exposed brick. Basketball hoops on the wall. Guys wizzing around the hallways on scooters.

Somehow the reality was very different.

I remember when I was at JWT Melbourne in the 90’s. I had a top-floor office that looked out over the Albert Park lake across to the sparkling waters of Port Phillip bay.

Sounds glamorous I know, but the offices were really more like an accounting firm than an ad agency.

Grey walls. Grey carpet tiles. Grubby elevators. Etc etc.

If your working day is spent in a boring old office, or even worse a cubicle, whatever you do don’t visit This ain’t no disco, a new blog about agency interiors.
