New country, new job!

Boy, it’s been a while since my last blog post! Over the past two months I’ve discovered how hard it can be to get a broadband connection in Australia! I’d been “refused” by three different companies before I was finally connected on Saturday. Lesson to be learned: check which company owns your local exchange; If you don’t you will be refused (but they won’t really tell you why!).

I’ve also started a new job at an excellent Australian digital agency called Visual Jazz Isobar (I know, it’s a bit long-winded isn’t it). VJ have an excellent set of clients and the agency is producing some outstanding work. We’ve also just become part of the Isobar group which have offices all over the globe. With over 2500+ employees, the group is producing some world-class work. It’s a very exciting time to be at Visual Jazz!

My Visual Jazz avatar: that's me holding Nigel Mansell's crash helmet!

Above you can see my custom VJ avatar. Everyone at VJ gets one and, as I’m a huge F1 fan I decided to incorporate it into my design. The crash helmet I’m holding is that of my childhood hero Nigel Mansell; winner of the 1992 F1 Season. I remember being on Club Corner, Silverstone in 1991 as a 10 year old, watching Mansell giving Senna a lift back to the pits as his McLaren had run out of fuel. Ahh the good old days!
