Is Monday gettin’ all up in your mix and making you feel sad and blue? Don’t worry you silly sausage - it’s #FunkMongerMonday ! Today’s funk arrives in the form of the nicest guy in the world - Gavin Strange.
It’s week 23 of #FunkMongerMonday - how mad is that? Madder than a bag of ladders, boy! Now, I started FunkMongerMonday all those weeks ago to cure them Monday blues just like bacon, and I’ve been lucky enough to find truly incredible creatives to hoot and holler about. This week I wanted to hoot and holler about Gavin Strange, who I had the pleasure of seeing last week, when he presented at #GlugBrum . Now, Gav is a Senior Designer at Aardman, but I wanted to focus on Jam Factory, which is a platform that he uses for creative experiments, miscellaneous funk and assorted flim-flams.
When I saw Gav speak, I came away with a true sense of inspiration - this here fella is head over heels in love with what he does. It’s so contagious I thought I was gonna walk out with chicken pox or those pesky Scandinavian measles! Seeing somebody super psyched about what they do is so exciting, man - he was throwin’ shapes and showin’ apes all over the gaff! If you haven’t checked him out yet, go and get amongst Gav’s work - he’s up to so much funk you’d have to tie two rulers together to measure it. Also, if you ever get a chance to go and see him speak then you’d better snap it up - he’ll make you feel feelings and touch ceilings! Don’t take my word for it though, go and check him out - do it know! Go!
