The Ogilvy Idea Shop opens for business

I’m rather excited! The Ogilvy Idea Shop opens its doors at 9am tomorrow morning. It’s a pop-up agency in Brixton Village Market where we’re giving free advice to small businesses, community projects, arts groups, and other folks who want to pick our brains.

It all started in November last year when Ruth Jamieson, one of our star copywriters, came to me with the idea. We roped in Art Director/Designer extraordinaire Paul Grizzell and made it as awesome as we could. Then, with the backing of the big dudes, we made it real. When I say ‘we’ I mean Ruth and Paul recruited some more volunteers and together they worked their arses off in every spare minute, several evenings and most weekends. I did very little apart from nod proudly whenever they showed me what they’d been doing.

So, anyway, tomorrow is the big day when it all kicks off. We’ll be covering as much of it as we can on the Idea Shop blog and twitter account. And I’ll probably be doing some tweetings too.

Wish us luck!
