Dan shares some of the photos and thoughts from our Idea Nation night.
I thought I’d share some of the pictures from our and Sapient Nitro London’s idea nation night. The night was organised by myself for Hello You Creatives and by James at Sapient Nitro.
I got to know the guys from the London office after I leaked their “Idea Engineer” rap video that got universally panned by the ad industry. When they called me asking to talk, I originally thought this would be about taking the video down. Instead they wanted to talk about creativity and how they could help young creatives. They want to leave the video as it is and move forward.
So together we came up with the “idea nation” as a place to gather young and new creatives and give back.
It was a fantastic night with tons of young and new creatives coming in from all around London and the UK. Sadly I wasn’t about to attend being in Paris but I’m proud of the event and got some really positive feedback from it all.
Sapient Nitro London present : The IDEA-NATION. April 12th
A night for young and new creatives - show us the future.
It is a whole new world out there - new media is now new new media and communication is evolving. To celebrate and embrace this Sapient Nitro are putting on a night for Young creatives. Teams, singles or a group of you - they just want to see amazing thinkers.
The night will be your chance to present your book to Sapient’s Creative Team including the Creative Directors. Not only that but you’ll get the chance to get tips on breaking into the industry from recruitment and industry experts.
The night will also feature a special competition where you’ll have the chance to pitch your answer to a brief in front of the whole agency. The best pitch will go on to a one-to-one pitch with the creative directors.
But wait, this will all be thirsty work - so we’ll be providing beers to help quench that thirst. We best make sure you don’t go hungry too so we’ll make sure there is plenty of Pizza to go around too.
So you’re probably wondering what you have to do to get to come along? Well to make it fair we’re running a competition - All you have to do is invent the new new new media. We’ve had posters, billboards, interactive displays but what’s next? Send us you’re ideas for a new medium.
Using kittens with logos adverts dyed into their fur for the Youtube generation? Daz logos on bright white teeth to promote whiter than white? Bruise art billboards on naked fat men? We want to hear it all. The best selection will get an invite to come and show the rest of their portfolio on the night.

How do we send our ideas in?
You can e-mail James Goodwin with your idea/s for a new medium. It could be an email, a scamp or song. In fact it could be using the medium that you’ve invented. The only important thing will be that the idea can be understood.
Do I have to be in a team / traditional team?
No you don’t have to be in a team, you do have to be creative and be able to produce amazing new and exciting creative work.
