It all starts with a pen and a blank paper...

It all starts with a pen and a blank paper. Just staring at the blank paper makes you think of an idea for what to write or sketch for your Advertising and Promotion campaign.. To be a good art director we have to start from the basic. Before you start ask yourself " Why should i buy/use this product or services?". Place yourself as the consumer. By then you're surely know your direction and plus with a good brief.

Well i am still learning how to be a good art director, apart from 5 years in advertising experience. Im still consider 'green' in advertising world. Working together with copywriter to juice up the copy and get the message across to the consumer. Get the message straight and easy to consumer to understand what are try to portray the client image and sell the product. If the consumer understands the ad, you have already succeeded. But if it just a 'pretty' and 'empty' ad. You have failed to get the client's voice to the potential consumer.

Here i am now, in one of the local advertising agency in KL. Finding a place to leave my mark and to be known in advertising scene. To create an "award winning award", earning annually RM44,000.00 income, apple macbook and going to advertising and design seminars and exhibition plus workshop. That is my dream. That's what i want in life.


My name is fadli izmir and i am Jnr Art Director for People & Bell.

The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth.

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same.

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Republik Cinta - a new album by DEWA19 known as DEWA. Load the songs into my iPod and gonna layan their songs for the rest of the month. Till i get bored actually :P

To me this album is has its uniqueness with the music arrangement, lyrics and of course the cover that grab my attention. The songs are fresh and hip its own way... and there's a cover song from Queen - I want to break free with new music arrangement.

Well i love all of the songs but the most is Perasaanku tentang perasaanku padamu. Well other than the lyrics that tells about this person feeling of feeling to this girl. Rasa kecintaan dan rasa rindu padamu - is part of the lyrics. There you go.. i could go on and on telling bout the whole album from my point of view.

Been listening to the whole song in one day while doing my work and reading got me shaking my head to every the beats and my feet cant stop stomping to the drum and bass beat. Gawd this album really.. i mean really KICK ASS!. And i must say that its just got into my top 10 albums.

Shud i be a FILM DIRECTOR?

Last night i went out to watch movie BULI BALIK by Afdlin Shauki, sequal of the BULI. Ohh.. went with Yana and Wadi@kudut. Overall the movie was good and i truly enjoyed myself. Gelak giler tak ingat! A good movie. Then we head straight to Mohsein at Taman Tunto meet up with yana's sister Edayu.

Lepak there for supper. Then i rang up Phaddil and lucky he was nearby at SS2. So ajak la lepak. Mana tau kut kut dier tengah face the same boredom syndrome same as me. Lepak minum makan nan and teh tarik... suddenly i saw a game of pool was showing on the telly.. Datang la idea untuk bermain pool. Location - Breakers in Hartamas. Yela tu tempat kire dekat ngan Taman Tun. But before that, we're head to phaddil hse since dier pakai selipar and sluar pendek. Pergilah akan kiteroang to his hse in Damansara Utama sebab to change sluar and pakai la kasut.

We reached there almost 1 sumthing in the morning. I havent been playing the game fer so long. Imagine nak 'tojot' the ball masuk ke dlm 'lobang' pun rasenyer dah berkarat. 1st game me against Kudut. A good start but i KALAH with one ball.. shhesshh.. tak per baru 1st game. Then Paddil against Kudut.. Kudut MENANG lagi! The 3rd game, me lawan ngan Yana. At first Yana malu cuz takut her butt 'tongek' just to get the 'feel' before cue to shot the ball. Her TUTOR - Kudut la (saper lagi) mengajarnya bagaimana untuk bermain pool. Sedar tak sedar, we're the last customers kat sane.. aper tak nyer its almost to 2.30am.

Lepak for awhile at Uncle Don for a drink. Bought me mum Roti for breakfast. Then head home and Phaddil lepak at my hse to watch sum DVDs. End up watching his debut for amateur filmmaking using DV. It's Alina's Rawkumentary about her life in Melbourne. Layan la the short film and i was amazed by his work. Impressive and there's potentials in him. The shot angle, editting and music. WHOA! Just need few exposure and links and he'll make it!

Gave he sum tips and critics yang membina... morelike discussion. About his vision and ideas on filmmaking. And me add up from my point of view of his artwork and the sharing ideas for hs next upcoming short film.. sembang lame gak ngan dier. He left the hse and i straight went up to my studio.

Im to tired now all dried up turn off the study lamp and zzzz....
