So MBA were the winners of the coveted prize ‘Give Charles and Jake their first creative placement’. It was a hard battle to fight and go on to win, but their charm, charisma and the fact that they were full of “really nice chaps” – (Charles, Jan 11th) sealed the deal for them.

Nobody told us that the first advert we’d get made would be a cheese related pun (Germain Gruyere didn’t make the cut unfortunately) but they wouldn’t of changed it for the world. Researching ideas for the social media account of a Gruyere cheese account is actually very insightful, we learnt some things that we’d never of known in our entire life a month ago…

Jake learnt not to say that you know how to use InDesign and say yes to a job before you actually know the size of the task you’re being presented with, cut to 6 hours later, a head ache, sore neck and the start of RSI he had finished the Sage Appliances by Heston Blumemmentaal 2000 page Coverage book.

Charles learnt that Fridays in advertising agencies as a creative are very fun. He learnt that the creative lot are in fact very generous (they gave us 20 quid to get pints before we’d even sat down) They then plied Charles with alcohol and expected him to go back to work.

It was another first for Charles as he enjoyed his first ever burrito from Benitos Hat. He was heard saying to himself “Well, I just don’t know where to start with this…” again another gift from MBA, the agency that keeps on giving…

All in all, it’s been a great experience “short and sweet” – and that’s just Jake…

We both enjoyed juicing every day, listening to Take me out anecdotes, talking about cheese puns, finding out where ODEON’s name comes from and being in a cool little agency that’s very welcoming and inclusive. We will see you sooner rather than later!

See you on the other side.

Charles and Jake
