We encourage everyone to 're-gift' this new year.

To those less fortunate. If you are unable to receive a special Tet Re-Gift bag, fill any bag and call 01666 303 958. Ms. Nguyen. They will pick up and deliver to the needy.

Chuc Mung Nam Moi! Have fun and be safe.

Happy new year everyone

We're about to turn off the lights here and spend some much needed time with loved ones. We've got the next day to do a little spring cleaning and get everything tip top to welcome in the new year. That also means doing a little dusting around the shop to get ready for the new year. So good luck to all of you and happy new year. Chúc mừng năm mới.

Contributing to the cultural conversation

artistic vision, commercial viability, Cultural Conversation, Dustin Nguyen, Saigon Creative Mornings
That's what we're starting to do by supporting Saigon/CreativeMornings. Over the past 12 months, we've tried to do work that makes people talk. Love the work or hate the work, at least talk about it. Now it's time to take a bigger part in the conversation. So starting tomorrow morning and every month Saigon/CreativeMornings will bring someone in to speak about a topic that directly affects the creative industries. It's not a seminar. Don't come expecting to learn how to do your job, but come to learn someone else's point of view on the very issues we all wrestle with daily. So tomorrow morning, actor/producer/director Dustin Nguyen is going to speak about how he balances his artistic vision and creating a commercially viable product.

What was your resolution?

Well, it's the beginning of a new year and we each have our resolutions. For some, it's to quit smoking, for others, to be nicer to others, for many, it's to eat less (and for one very lucky girl in our office, her resolution is to actually put on some weight!).

TBWA\Vietnam's resolution? We're going to make more people uncomfortable this year. And that includes ouselves. Yes, we're still going to bathe. But we're setting out to do more to make people question... well, just about everything.

We're starting with Saigon/CreativeMornings which will be hosted here at TBWA every month. It's a monthly speaker on a topic that relates to creativity. The first speaker will be actor/director/producer Dustin Nguyen who is going to discuss the balance between art and commerce - something everyone who works in the creative industries deals with every day. You can find out more about Saigon/CreativeMornings here.

We're off to find out what else we can shake up. Happy New Year, everyone.
