As we dive headlong into the silly season, we’ve wrestled the Wacom tablet away from designer Richard Shilling to get his take on two Christmas ads doing the rounds on Australian TV.

First up is the battle of retail behemoths Myer and Stockland.

Each has a markedly different approach to the form and content of their ads, and the results are equally divergent.

More on that shortly. First cab off the rank - what makes a good Christmas ad in the Australian market?

If you’ve walked past a television or seen a meme any time in the past 20 years, you probably know the English town of Slough (rhymes with ‘cow’) as the dreary suburban backdrop to BBC cult classic The Office.

Between the months of November and April, Darwin enters its 'tropical summer' phase. To celebrate the unique natural phenomenon and drive tourism during the shoulder season,  the NT government commissioned internationally-renowned artist Bruce Munro to install a series of light sculptures around around the city.

Many of our clients sit in marketing teams tasked with creating content that’ll increase engagement, brand awareness or sell a new product. Jumbla’s UK Head of Production Laura Breaden went to the Festival of Marketing (FoM) to hear industry insiders’ predictions around upcoming trends in marketing, to find out what’s working - and more importantly, what isn’t.

Here’s  her cheatsheet from the day.

Life as a salesman was antithetical to the career Cornel Swoboda appeared destined to pursue.

Yet there he was, another fresh-faced 20 year old donning a suit and tie to work a generic job while questioning his place in the world.

In early October, game audio composers, studios and devs gathered at the Arcade - Melbourne’s collaborative workspace for game developers - to discuss creating sonic landscapes and ‘breaking in’ to the industry. Jumbla’s in-house composer and sound designer, Sean Crowley, went along. Here’s what he found out.

Two years ago, RoyalPay came to Jumbla to help launch one of Australia’s first payment platforms for WeChat and AliPay. One stunning explainer video and $2 billion worth of transactions later, they’re back again -- this time, to promote a new individualised Australian e-wallet solution for cross-continental transactions, powered by a neobank. (For those of us not in the know, a neobank is a solely digitally operated bank, not associated to any traditional banks.)

When Envato co-founder Collis Ta’eed asked for help launching  an app aimed at helping women build their own business, there was no way we could say no.

Few things get the industry buzzing so much as news of a product launch. Yesterday, it was Sony that lit up feeds with the announcement of its much-awaited PlayStation 5.

We’ve reached that time of year again – when it gets dark out quickly, and the vast majority of the globe slinks back into their living rooms early on a Monday evening.
