FabFitFun Fall 2019 Editor’s Box Review | Deals Too Good to Pass Up

Leave a reply
My FabFitFun Fall 2019 Editor’s Box review is coming. I ordered it yesterday for $49.99 when the ability to customize the first five categories opened in the shop. Only random boxes were available in the Edit Sale for $39.99, and even with the $10 off, I did not think that was a good deal. The ability to customize really makes all the difference. As far as I know, there is not a code to start with this box yet. That means this box is only available for current subscribers to purchase separately. New subscribers will start with the Fall Box , but they can order this from the shop immediately after joining. Available Offers for Joining FabFitFun
Use code FAB50 to get 50% off ($24.99) a FabFitFun Fall 2019 Box subscription. When does the FabFitFun Editor’s Box get released?
The Fall Editor’s 2019 Box got released in the Edit Sale , as most of them do. This box did not enter the shop until four days after the Edit Sale ended. It only had three options for the first three days. Midway through the third day, all five options opened. That is when it was worth ordering. New Subscribers
Anyone who signs up for a new membership between seasonal boxes starts with an Editor’s Box as the first box of their subscription. As of the publication date, there are still Fall boxes left, so you will start with the FabFitFun Fall 2019 Box unless you use the code designated for this Editor’s Box. The regular codes, fffa2p6 or FAB10 , will get you $10 off whichever box FabFitFun is selling when you happen upon this post. You can use code FAB50 to get 50% off ($24.99) a FabFitFun Fall 2019 Box subscription. New annual subscribers ($179.99 for 4 boxes) can select all five customizations I go over below. Seasonal subscribers ($49.99 per box) who are new can only select three.
The Fall 2019 Editor’s Box retails for $49.99. There are 8 items in the box making the cost for each item $6.25. FabFitFun Summer 2019 Editor’s Box Customization
Of the eight items, up to five are customizable. New seasonal subscribers can select three. All current subscribers and new annual subscribers can make a selection in each of the five categories. All Subscribers Can Customize
Choice 1 : Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream ($89), Kate Spade Out To Lunch New York Lunch Tote ($30), Olive & Pique LOLA Scarf Charcoal ($84), or Luxie Face Complexion Set ($45 but on sale for $35 at Macy’s).
I selected the Elemis, but I would have been equally happy with the scarf. The Olive & Pique Scarf I own is lovely. Those looking for the lunchbox or brushes will probably be happy as well. Both are products I already own and thoroughly enjoy, especially the brushes.
Choice 2: Skinvolve Body Boost Gel ($45), Understated Leather Embellished Wooden Brush Velvet Pouch Blush ($30), or Circus by Sam Edelman Niccolla Slim Wallet ($38).
I selected the brush, because I could not get a good look at the wallet. Even if I love the Body Boost once I try it, the three I got in the fall box are enough for a while. Besides, a girl can never have too many brushes, especially one as pretty as this.
Choice 3: CZ by Kenneth Jay Lane Round Bezel Necklace ($? cannot find link; will update price when the product card arrives), or APTO Skincare Mist Set in Turmeric & Pomegranate ($20).
I finally sprayed the APTO mists from the Summer Editor’s Box, and they both smell awful. Even though I do not wear jewelry often, anything beats these sprays. The Milk Holo stick that was a possibility during the Edit Sale is what I would have selected if it was not removed before the box started allowing customization. Current Subscribers and New Annual FabFitFun Subscribers Can Customize
New Seasonal subscribers, those who purchase from the Edit Sale, anyone who purchases after customization closes, and those who ask for a surprise box will receive one item at random.
Choice 4: IGK Expensive ($29), Maji Sports Trigger Ball ($24.95), or Cosmedix Pure C Vitamin C Mixing Crystals ($54).
I selected the IGK, because I already own the other two. Well, I really want to try the IGK as well. My hair is frizzy and can use some serious shine.
Choice 5: This Works Sleep Together Calming Spray ($34), Touch in SOL No Poreblem Primer ($18), or e Harper + Ari Exfoliating Sugar Cubes Juice Cleanse ($16).
I a lre a dy own the primer and the Exfoliant. Because I love the Deep Sleep Pillow Spray from This Works, I decided I have to try the Sleep Together Calming Spray.
The Wander Beauty Baggage Claim Gold Eye Masks 6 Pack retail for $25. I still have not tried this yet. If I love them, I will have a lot more to try. These make great gifts if I do not love them.
The Feel Renewed Pumpkin Walnut Facial Cleanser retails for $28. I am concerned about micro tears, but a lot of people say this is too gentle for that. All things pumpkin usually interest me, but I typically avoid walnut on my body, except my feet.
The Whish Beauty Blue Matcha Restoring Mask retails for $58. I love trying expensive masks when I can get them at a fraction of the price. This was one of the main draws of this box. The FabFitFun Fall 2019 Editor’s Box Theme
There are box variations. I will go over the value of mine once I receive the card to see what the necklace is worth. Every box teams with a philanthropic cause. Like the regular Fall 2019 Box, this box supports City of Hope. Fall 2019 FabFitFun Editor’s Box Review
The Editor’s Boxes are usually not as themed as the seasonal ones, but the scarf and pumpkin cleanser do fit the summer. It is more about selling leftover products and giving us a chance to grab more of the ones we loved from the past.
I already covered the items above, so I will just say I really wanted seven of the eight items. Once the box arrives, I will say more. Is The Fall 2019 FabFitFun Editor’s Box Worth It?
I will cover this once the box arrives.

Budget Travel Tips for Students Traveling in 2019

Note: This article is a syndicated post and originally appeared on ClaimCompass .
A trip abroad, whether it is to study in a different university for a semester or to take a break from classes to seek a different kind of knowledge, is often (always?) a turning point in a student’s life.
But to make the most of their trip in 2019, students would do well to keep in mind those budget travel tips.
After all, there’s nothing more frustrating than being in a new and exciting environment and be unable to fully enjoy it because you struggle financially.
These proven techniques have allowed me to travel to Europe and Asia as a student, without having to worry too much about money… despite a student loan.
Don’t approach your trip abroad as you do every exam, by starting to work on it at the last minute. The more prepared you are, the more you’ll enjoy the experience.
1. Before Leaving on Your Trip
a. Choose Your Destination Wisely
Where will you stay?
The place where you will spend a semester or more obviously has a major impact on how fast you will run out of money.
European countries are very varied in terms of the cost of living. Western Europe and Scandinavia are generally more expensive than Central and Western Europe, as you can see on the maps from this handy post .
Now, keep in mind that while this means that you will feel more pressure on your budget in Western Europe and Scandinavia, it is actually very close to the cost of living in the US. Not to mention that if you decide to work on the side, you will earn more money than you would in Central and Eastern Europe.
But the latter has a lot to offer as well: not only will you find good universities in the East, it’s also very cheap and easy to travel to another country. Something to keep in mind if you consider visiting several countries during your stay in Europe.
The cost of living will generally be lower in South America, Africa, and Asia, with a few exceptions.
b. Save Money on Flights
Unlike for shorter trips, the price of your flight ticket isn’t going to be one of your main expenses when you travel for a few months… provided that you know how to book cheap flights.
When it comes to finding low fares, the keyword is “flexibility”. Choose your travel dates and the time when you book your flight with care: the price can vary to more than double within a week.
As a rule of thumb, avoid flying during major holidays or on Fridays (when many people fly for a weekend trip) or Sundays (when people fly back from a weekend trip).
Use a flight search engine like Skyscanner or Momondo: they let you see the prices for a whole month at the same time, so you can easily spot which day is the cheapest one.
Keep in mind that to increase your chances of scoring the cheapest fares, you should aim at booking your international flight between 3-4 months in advance. Don’t rely on last-minute deals, it’s likely that there won’t be any.
If tickets to your destination are always expensive, consider an alternative path to your destination.
For example, when I went to China, tickets were very expensive for my dates (and I was very flexible with those). So instead of flying straight there, I flew to Vietnam, spent some time there, and then took a flight to China. The overall cost was much lower than if I had flown directly to China, even taking the accommodation costs in Vietnam into account.
For more ways to save money on flights, I highly recommend that you check out this post .
c. Look for Accommodation
Now that you know where you’re going, start thinking of where you’re going to stay… and how you can save money on accommodation.
Check out Student Dorms First
Being a student has major advantages when it comes to access to discounts (more on that later), especially in regards to accommodation. Mainly because your student status gives you access to student dorms.
If you’re traveling for a university exchange, contact your host university and inquire about the availability of dormitories on the campus or nearby. If there are any, this is probably your best bet to save money on accommodation.
Still, dig a little bit deeper first before booking a bed in a dorm.
Look for Shared Flats
In general, renting a room in a flat is more expensive than renting one in a dormitory. But if you can find roommates to split the expenses, the rent might be very similar in the end.
Just keep in mind that very often, you will have to leave a deposit first – even though you will (likely) recover it at the end of your stay, this is still a big expense at the beginning of the trip. Hence the need to find roommates if you elect this option.
If you’re traveling with other friends from university, ask them if they’d consider sharing a flat. If you’re alone, you can join Facebook groups for students traveling to your destination. In Europe, these groups will often be called “Erasmus [city name] [year]”.
You can also book your first month in the university dormitory and look for a shared flat once you’re there. Being on site usually makes things much easier.
d. Visit Your Doctor
No matter where you’re traveling, pay a visit to your doctor before your trip. Make sure that everything is in order health-wise and tell her/him about your travel plans: they will be able to advise whether you need any vaccines or should pack specific medication.
If you’re on a special treatment, make sure that you’ll be able to get what you need there, or ask your doctor for a prescription that will allow you to bring your medication with you. If your treatment isn’t available at your destination, it will cost you extra to have it brought to you from abroad.
A visit to your dentist probably isn’t a bad idea either… If it turns out that you have a problem abroad and your insurance doesn’t cover the fees, this could be a major unwanted expense that can easily ruin your trip.
Medical bills are usually very expensive, so you want to make sure that you’re as prepared as possible on that front, to limit the risks of bad surprises.
e. Get Your Travel Documents in Order
If you don’t already have one, get a passport. If you do have one, make sure it doesn’t expire while you’re abroad. Ideally, you want your passport’s expiration date to be at least 6 months after the date of your flight back : if for one reason or another you need to stay longer, you’ll be glad you have this 6-month margin rather than going to your embassy in an emergency.
The same goes for your visa: check whether you need one or not in advance. If you wait until the last minute, you may have to request an accelerated procedure, which is always more expensive.
Once you’re abroad, you really do not want to have to make a hole in your budget because of administrative procedures. Make sure everything is sorted out before you hop on the plane.
f. Determine Your Budget and Ways to Manage It Efficiently
Estimate How Much this Trip Will Cost You
There is no need for you to go into too many details, but having a vague estimate of your expenses abroad will go a long way to helping you save money once you’re on site.
Do some research on the cost of living at your destination. You want to have a rough idea of how expensive are the rents, how much money you need for a month/week of grocery shopping, how costly it is to go out, etc.
Knowing this will help you manage your budget more efficiently once you’re there, as you will be able to compare your actual expenses with your initial research and make some adjustments to your spending habits if necessary.
g. Get an ISIC
As a student, the first thing you want to do is getting an International Student Identity Card (ISIC): this magic card will unlock a plethora of discounts for you. It is recognized in most countries around the world. Some countries, however, only recognize the local student cards – so once you’re abroad, try to get one of those done as well by your host university.
h. Apply for a Grant
You should also inquire about grants: if you’re not planning on working during your trip, these may be your sole source of revenue. The main institutions that could potentially offer a grant are your own university, your host university, and the state. Do a bit of research and apply. Again, do so in advance, because grants are often given several months before
i. Contact your Bank
Make sure that using your credit or debit card abroad won’t incur significant fees. Tell your banker about your trip and the countries you’re planning on visiting: they’ll be able to recommend which card to use to save money on card payments and withdrawals. For example, it might be cheaper to withdraw large amounts of cash once you’re abroad, rather than pay by card, if there are fees every time that you do so.
If it looks like your bank doesn’t offer many advantages to people traveling abroad, consider changing. TransferWise’s borderless account or the bank N26 have very low transfer fees and are particularly popular among young travelers.
If you think that your budget is a bit tight, you might want to raise the issue with your banker as well, to benefit from a loan a low rate. However, if you can avoid going into debt, refrain from taking a loan, as it will cost you more money in the long run.
j. Pack your Bag
Bring a (Small) Suitcase to Pack your Essentials… If you Really Have to
You may have noticed that I recommended that you pack your essentials. I meant exactly that. That’s why you should you insist on bringing a carry-on, bring only a small suitcase. Even if you’re leaving for 6 months or more.
To save money – or rather to avoid paying bag fees at the airport – make sure that your suitcase meets the airline’s requirements in terms of weight and dimension.
You might be tempted to bring all your favorite clothes, books, and other random items. Don’t. It’s a basic mistake. The lighter you travel, the more enjoyable the experience. It’s makes moving around much easier and pleasant, while a large and heavy suitcase will only make traveling a hassle.
So when you’re packing, apply the popular saying: “take half the clothes and twice the money” (yes, that last part can be tricky too, but at least, you have full control over the first one).
Wherever you will live, there will be a way for you to do a laundry. So apply the 1 to 6 rule .
But Consider Traveling with a Backpack Only
I know the idea might seem daunting, especially when leaving for several months at a time. But this is a key budget travel tip.
When going abroad, to study or not, you will travel to places other than the town or city where you will live. If you travel by plane, you need to have a small piece of luggage to use as a carry-on, that is both respectful of the airline’s dimensions requirements and in which you can pack enough for a few days.
Hence the backpack. You do NOT want to have a suitcase to carry when you’re on the move. Instead, opt for an anti-theft backpack that lets you keep your money safe and pack a few clothes, without hindering your mobility.
By traveling with a carry-on only, you will save a ton of money for your trip: most airlines’ basic fares include only a carry-on. If you want to get a hand on those cheap flights, you’d better opt for a backpack only.
Some people travel the world during years at a time with only a bag on their back. If they can do it for so long, surely you can do it for a few months.
B. During Your Trip
You’ve arrived at destination: now what? How do you make sure that you don’t run out of money?
A quick tip for you before getting to the heart of the matter: if you were flying from the US to Europe with a European airline and your flight was delayed, cancelled, or overbooked , and you reached your destination at least 3 hours later than planned, you may be entitled to $700 in compensation from the airline.
Manage Your Budget
You have two options to stay within your budget while traveling: you can either save money or earn some.
Or you can do both.
a. Find Ways to Save Money
Let’s start by cutting down your expenses.
Cancel your Unnecessary Subscriptions
What good is your gym membership if you can’t go to the gym for 6 months? Cancelling it before leaving will allow you to allocate this budget to a different activity when you’re abroad.
Review the list of all the services that you have subscribed to and cancel the superfluous ones. Be ruthless about it.
Save Money on Food
To save money on food, start by cooking your own meals as often as possible.
Buy your groceries at the local market or supermarket instead of having lunch and dinner at the restaurant every day. But do not look for the specific products that you are used to eating back home: they’re likely to cost much more than in the US. Instead, try the local, cheaper alternatives.
Save Money on Accommodation
If you’re like every other student who goes studying abroad, you’ll be traveling every time you get the chance (ie when you don’t have class).
A fantastic way to save money on accommodation while traveling is to volunteer. While you won’t be paid, you will generally be offered free board and lodging in exchange for your work. Most volunteers say that their experience was life-changing for them, so do take a minute to consider the idea.
You can find an example of volunteer missions on websites like Workaway or HelpX. If you want to work on an organic farm, check out WWOOF. You can also work in a hostel, where you will meet travelers with inspiring stories and still have time to enjoy what the town or city has to offer.
Save Money while Visiting Places
Avoid booking expensive tours to discover a new city. Many places now offer free walking tours. They are generally organized and led by young locals anxious to show the beauty of their city in a casual atmosphere.
While the popular Lonely Planet and TripAdvisor can always give you an idea of what to do and see in a new city, you should also look for travel blogs on your destination, for more off-the-beaten-path inspiration. Why? Because these places are usually less touristic and therefore, cheaper than the rest , while also being more authentic.
b. Or Look Into Ways to Earn Money While Traveling
If you can’t refrain from spending more money than you should (or can afford), you’re going to need ways to earn more money while studying abroad.
Teach English… or Any Other Skill that you Have
Being an American student gives you a major advantage over many people around the world: you’re speaking English as a native language (or at least fluently).
Did you know that there are literally millions of people in the world willing to learn how to speak English? English teachers are in demand worldwide. But the best part is that you no longer need to give a class in person: you can now do it over a simple video call.
If teaching a language doesn’t appeal to you, you might be more inclined to share your passion. Do you play an instrument? I bet someone would love to learn! Do you do yoga? Or surf? People are looking for teachers in many places around the world.
Freelance
With your university degree in the pocket (or almost…), you probably already have business skills and knowledge that employers are looking for. By trying to sell them during your trip abroad, you will accomplish 2 things of value to you: you will earn money (that’s still your main goal) and you will add a work experience on your resume, which future potential employers will be delighted to see.
Based on your skills, you can do copywriting, design, programming, etc. Here as well, possibilities are endless, or close.
3. Build Your Plan to Integrate those Budget Travel Tips
There is no doubt that your trip abroad will be a life-changing experience. The extent to which it will, may very well depend on how well you handle your budget.
Use this post as a checklist to prepare your trip and make sure that you don’t miss out on an opportunity to save money.
Happy travels!

Creative Confetti: Pop of Personality!

Happy Tuesday and welcome to a new Creative Confetti challenge! I’m Lisa Johansen and I am thrilled to be your guest host today! Let’s get right to it, shall we?
The temperatures have dropped and most of my flowers have wilted and died with the freezes we’ve had here in southcentral Alaska. As I was putting away my pots and preparing my yard for winter, I started to think about the flowers I have throughout my gardens and why I chose them. Hardiness? Color? Height? There are so many reasons we lovers of nature choose the flowers and plants that we do for our yards to make them stand out. Then, I started thinking even deeper and wondered if I had to choose a flower that matched my personality which flower would I choose and that’s how today’s challenge was born folks!
HOW TO PLAY: This is a nice and simple challenge! Just pick a flower that you think best represents your personality and color away! Are you a demure Easter lily? Maybe you are a fun-loving daffodil or a wild and crazy dahlia? There are so many possibilities with this challenge!
I knew right away that I was going to go with pansies, I just adore them. They are the first flowers in my garden to bloom when the snow melts and they are the last ones to say goodbye when the cold moves into the valley.
How do I compare them to my personality? Well, I see pansies as colorful and bold but yet also hardy and reliable and I can definitely say all of that about myself! I’ve got a pretty loud personality and will talk to anyone, one of my best friends says I’ve never met a stranger, but I also like routine and am not a fan of surprises. Living in Alaska one has to be pretty hardy to make it through the different things that get thrown at us out here and those who know me know I’m always reliable, whether it’s at work, meeting up for a hike or just to be there for someone in need.
Now for my card
I used the Power Poppy digital stamp set, Pansies for my card and just repeated the image across my panel, turning it and manipulating it in my Word program until I got the look that I wanted. I then used a sentiment from the Easy Breezy Coneflowers digital stamp set to finish off the card. I used Copic markers to color the image and colored my pansies in the colors that I love for my garden, the purple and yellow pansies, and then the orange and purple pansies. It’s funny, I’m not a fan of the color purple but in my garden, you’ll find it mixed in all over the place!
Okay folks, now it’s your turn to show us what flower represents YOUR personality! Remember, after you create and play along, link up your project using the linky below so we can all see. Since this linky is up all month, every entry with our weekly challenge is one more shot at a $25 gift code to the Power Poppy Shop ! Woo hoo!
If you need a certain image for your creation don’t forget Power Poppy has a bonus for you! Look at this coupon below for $5.00 off your purchase of $15.00 or more. If you haven’t grabbed this great deal yet — now is the perfect time! It’s good until Oct.14th!
Before we let you go, we do need to share the winner from our September Creative Confetti challenges! We put all the names in the virtual hat and random.com drew the number…
Which means the winner is
**** CYNTHIA OLHEISER! ****
Just look at Cynthia’s gorgeous card using Spring Meadow Bouquet! She took this beauty “Over the Edge” for one of our challenges and wowed us all! Cynthia, just email Marcella at bloom@powerpoppy.com and she will get your code sent to you for your next shopping trip!
Thanks everyone for stopping by! I hope you join me this week so I can see what flower shares a bit of your personality!

On Brief: Yes Tribe x Oliver Sin

Our On Brief project pairs emerging creative talent with startups, non-profits and community groups to produce scroll-stopping visuals for Facebook and Instagram. Here we take a look at Oliver Sin’s animations for Yes Tribe
Our latest On Brief project promotes the joys of sleeping under the stars. In partnership with Facebook, we commissioned Cheltenham-based creative Oliver Sin to produce a series of playful animations encouraging people to sign up to wild camping trips organised by Yes Tribe.
Yes Tribe was founded by graphic designer and travel writer Dave Cornthwaite in 2015. Inspired by the kindness of strangers he met on his trips, Cornthwaite set out to find new ways of meeting people back home in London. What started with a one-night camp organised via Facebook has grown into a community group with more than 15,000 members around the world.
Yes Tribe now hosts a wealth of events in the UK and abroad, from festivals to cycles and socials. Most of these events take place in rural locations (the group owns seven acres of countryside in West Sussex, along with a double decker bus which can host workshops and retreats), and all are aimed at bringing people together . Stills from Oliver Sin’s animation for Yes Tribe Stills from Oliver Sin’s animation for Yes Tribe
Each summer, it runs a series of wild camping events through its Wake Up Wild initiative – which encourages people to get out of the city and make friends in the great outdoors. Keen to promote Wake up Wild to a wider audience, Facebook and Yes Tribe came up with a brief to create a 15-second animation that would catch the attention of ‘urban adventurers’– the kind of city workers who would rather spend a Friday afternoon in a field than stuck at their desk with a supermarket meal deal.
As Sammy King, Creative Agency Partner at Facebook, explains, the animation needed to convey three key messages: the fact that getting outside is good for your mental health ; that signing up to the event is easy (once people register, they are sent a camping kit and details of where and when to meet) and that Wake Up Wild offers the chance to experience something new. “ Once we had these, we could crack on with briefing Oliver and crafting the animation,” he says.

Facebook then worked with Yes Tribe to plot out a rough concept for a 15-second animation, which could be split into three shorter pieces of content. Sin put together a storyboard showing how each frame would be composed, and how scenes would transition, before creating an outline version of the animation in Illustrator and experimenting with different colour palettes. “I tend to animate a rough first draft to begin with before fleshing out with secondary motion and texturing,” he explains.
The result is a playful set of animations that show explorers stepping off the tube and into the wild. The creative reflects Sin’s distinctive style, and the rich colours and textures aim to capture the beauty of the British countryside. https://s3-eu-central-1.amazonaws.com/centaur-wp/creativereview/prod/content/uploads/2019/10/WUW_full_read.mp4
Oliver Sin created a 15-second animation for Yes Tribe, which highlights the benefits of its Wake Up Wild camping events
“I’ve been building a style the past few years that I could be recognised for, so I wanted to bring it into this campaign as well,” explains Sin.
“The colours are very much inspired by the very thing the campaign is all about: nature. Blending in the different greens then throwing in some brighter vibrant oranges and yellows really gives that extra punch and emphasis on characters.”
This was Sin’s first animation created specifically for Facebook and Instagram Stories: “A lot of my work would be for much longer videos so it was great to work on a shorter and more concise short,” he says. As well as a much snappier style of storytelling, the project required him to think carefully about framing and composition to ensure that the key messages could be communicated in just a few seconds. https://s3-eu-central-1.amazonaws.com/centaur-wp/creativereview/prod/content/uploads/2019/10/WUW_cut_01.mp4
Sin also created three shorter, five-second animations, which each focused on a different benefit of campaign (shown above and below)
“Composition and framing was a big part of my thought process when I was designing the scenes. The main focus – the character and tent – had to be central so our sight was fixed on them, as they were the main subject,” he explains. “The trickiest part was nailing the pacing so it wasn’t too rushed, otherwise no one would be able to have time to digest what was going on, so I opted for snappier transitions that didn’t linger too long between each frame.
The animations will be rolled out on Facebook and Instagram, and Cornthwaite hopes they will encourage more people to sign up to Yes Tribe’s events – or embark on camping trips of their own.
It’s the first time Yes Tribe has commissioned an external creative to produce visual content for Facebook and Instagram. It’s also the first time it has experimented with animation – though Cornthwaite says it’s something the group plans to work with more in future. https://s3-eu-central-1.amazonaws.com/centaur-wp/creativereview/prod/content/uploads/2019/10/WUW_cut_02.mp4
While Yes Tribe has a creative team, Cornthwaite says he was interested in working with someone who could bring a fresh new look to the group’s campaigns. “It’s easy to get stuck in your own bubble, however interesting the project may be. On Brief sounded like a great way to add a new element to the way we market our wild camps,” he says.
“We looked at a variety of artists and they were all great, and chose Oliver because his work had a wonderful affinity with nature. It felt right!”
Reflecting on what they’ve learned from the project, Cornthwaite believes it’s vital to give creatives freedom to express their vision while Sin recommends thinking carefully about how creative can be tailored to suit mobile environments. King believes it’s important to create eye-catching visuals that stand out, but also to ensure that you aren’t wasting time and losing people’s interest by failing to get straight to the point. https://s3-eu-central-1.amazonaws.com/centaur-wp/creativereview/prod/content/uploads/2019/10/WUW_cut_03.mp4
“It’s important to keep a fast tempo, to catch people’s attention and to deliver your message quickly,” he says. “If we think of the reasons why people spend time on Facebook or Instagram – inspiration, connection, discovery – animation sits perfectly in this space. It can take you to amazing, eye-catching and magnificent places that can offer you a break from reality (or fill that few seconds you have until the kettle finishes boiling). But bear in mind the way in which people watch stuff here. There’s no guarantee that people are going to be watching anything you make till the end, so how you fish for their attention from the very start is critical.”
Key to the campaign was establishing the key messages that Yes Tribe wanted to get across before putting together a brief – and finding someone who could communicate those messages through imaginative visuals that would make people stop and take notice.
“People scroll through their Feeds and tap through their Stories at a rate of knots, in an environment where everything competes with everything. Standing out and getting noticed is of the utmost importance. With Oliver’s bold, eye-catching and thumb-stopping style, we were confident that our creative was able to do that, however we still needed to be clever with how we constructed the ad,” adds King.
On Brief is part of Inspire , a partnership between Creative Review, Facebook and Instagram to showcase outstanding creative work on both platforms. Creatives are paid for their involvement in On Brief. For more content from Inspire, see creativereview.co.uk/inspire

TAIPEI, Taiwan — Former White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders is defending President Donald Trump’s use of Twitter to get his message out and says the U.S. hopes that unrest in Hong Kong can be handled “both internally and peacefully.”
Speaking in Taiwan on Tuesday, Sanders said it was “always positive to have such great access to the president and what his thinking is.”
Sanders no longer holds any position in Trump’s administration, but she said U.S. policy toward the sometimes-violent anti-government protests in Hong Kong has been consistent and a peaceful resolution is hoped for. Trump has been largely silent on the four-month-old demonstrations.
Sanders also said the administration was behind the president in seeking a fairer economic relationship with China, amid the ongoing trade war between the sides.
