Karthik M : Interview with an advertising creative

 

Just like it says on his website, Karthik M is a guy who loves to make things, who lives with his musical better half, and who sincerely believes that one day both his feline sons will start talking to him. He loves doing side projects, just like Ji Lee and SwissMiss. He’s the author of @mysmallstories on Twitter. He keeps a thick beard to hide his double chin, and will often scratch it while pretending to think. He finds it very, very difficult to write about himself, be it in the third person, or out of that person.

Why are you into Advertising?

What the font!

What the font  

Ever seen a font and wondered which was it? WhatTheFont? is a wonderful new service that lets you identify fonts. Just upload a jpeg and it will tell you what font it is. We tried with the DesiCreative logotype. After upload, WTF? wanted us to help it confirm some characters.  It couldn’t give us a match, but suggested we could consult a font expert in the font forums. Worth a try once. What the heck!

Remember the milk

remember the milk is an absolutely brilliant task management service.you can create a free account, set tasks and reminders. you can set due tasks through Twitter as well. you can recieve reminders via email, SMS and instant messenger (AIM, GAdu-Gadu, Google Talk, ICQ, Jabber, MSN, Skype and Yahoo! are all supported).

Work together to get things done.Share, send and publish tasks and lists with your contacts or the world. You could Group your contacts. 

Groups are simply groupings of your contacts. You can give them names like Friends or Enemies.

Putting your contacts into groups makes it easier when you want to share a task with multiple people. For example, instead of individually select the names of everyone in your office, you could just choose to share with your Co-workers group.

Departments/Groups can set up Groups. Client Management teams can setup tasks, deadlines and reminders and add them to the group. All related people in the group, Creatives,Media, Planning, Servicing, suppliers etc, will be automatically reminded of the tasks, as well as the task location, using the Maps. So Servicing people’s chores of reminding and following up on people is reduced.
