If you're creative, you'll probably like to cook. If you don't, well, I'm sure you like to eat and know someone who likes to cook ;)
Yes, it's really unnecessary knowledge, but you do find some very funny facts, some even quite interesting. Anyway, when you run out of conversation, there are a couple of ice breakers here.

Eye Petrol is an online magazine, in which its content is online user generated, basically you submit your work, and if it's good enough, you and the world will see it in the downloadable magazine. So if you want to show off your work, here's a good chance.
Thanks to Bob Ferraz for the tip.
Genious way to present sales figures. The game looks promising to.

I recommend you check the very cool illustration work featured on Art Director/Illustrator Vanessa Teodoro's' blog ---> The V Illustrations
I'm not if this will be a big success or not, none the less, it's a very funny idea.

A very interesting project by Lotus. Will we finally be able to have an eco-friendly car wich is actually good looking?
About this project:

Great illustration and it's for a good cause!

I like the photography on these self-promo ads by out of work Egyptian Art Director/Copywriter duo.
You can contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org
If I was a Creative Director, I would at least give them a chance to show their portfolio.

Don't know which image bank you guys use, but if you're like most people, you'll probably use Getty or Corbis. I was contacted this afternoon by PhotoShelter, an image bank which prides its self from paying a fairer share of the profit to the photographers. Not wanting to enter any image banks wars, and just giving you another option, if you're thinking of selling your photos to an image bank, you might be interested in reading PhotoShelters' CEO Allen Murabayashi statement here. It is an interesting read.
Fantastic project by designer/art director James West, with all the money raised from the book going to UNICEF. So far he has made £6000 (€7538 / USD11841) for cyclone victims of Myanmar (Burma). You can donate directly, if you wish, here.
Unfortunately the book is now sold out, but you never know, maybe some more will be produced? I would buy one.

I'm sure you'll end up laughing with this one. Have a great weekend.
Thanks to Maurício for the tip.

Just the name Jung von Matt should be enough for any advertising student to be interested in applying for a placement, however Jung Von Matt still decided on doing a very good guerrilla campaign to entice the students at Berghs School of Communication in Sweden.
