My name is Alberto Tandoi, I am 47 and am resident in Milan, Italy. I am an advertising creative with almost 30 yrs experience in international advertising agencies such as Saatchi&Saatchi, Young&Rubicam,J.W.Thompson, Grey Worldwide. I started as art director, but in time I sort of switched to copywriting. As a creative director I exploit and sort of mix both these discipline into a single objective-focused working method, which has given me some satisfactions so far. I am very much into screenplay writing as well (I won 1st prize a Santa Monica Film Festival) and direction. I am competent in edit, postproduction (both video and audio), illustration, photoretouch, graphic design, and free hand drawing. I think I give y best with strategic thinking and brand definition, that's where my competences best entwine and give fruit. I am a very careful money-controller: I know exactly how much good quality costs and when it's worth spending on it, according to budget and objectives. My job consists in making all these collide into single strong concepts, able to walk on their legs for a long time thereafter. This succeeded me particularily well with Mùller Yougurt campaign, created in '98, whose claim and position has stood untouchable hitherto. Probably my most famous campaing in Italy
Is there anything I can't do? Oh lots. I'm not good at opening bottles with my teeth, eating 16 hamburger in 5 minutes, and I would describe me a a very mediocre fresh-eggs juggler.
To calculate my fee you should take an typical RAL of a senior creative and diminish it by 1% for every Celsius degree exceeding 25°, calculated at sea level in the city where you're offering a job. And adding back 1% percent for every 100miles of distance by the same sea or ocean whatsoever.
As fringe benefit I'd greatly consider letting me take my wife and chihuahua with me; or at least setting the mentioned RAL to a non-exactly-average level: for me to afford a discrete small pool plus two bathing mattresses (one normal, one chihauha-sized) with cocktail/bone holder incorporated . This to encourage them both wiggling their tails crazy when I'm home for dinner. If where you're going to ship me people work past dinner time, that's no issue to me, my sweeties start wiggles when the recognize the tyres schreech down the avenue.
What to add more? I guess I will need to check my credentials and practise some phrenology study on my skull first, which I have nothing against. But I suggest doing some Skype petting first, that'll make it easier for you to ascertain I don't wear a Hannibal Muzzles or a funnel over my head. Ok, on Skype one can cheat, right, right. But, hey, you don't know how convincingly my chihuaha can splat her ears backward until she resemble –remember Shreks' Puss in Boots when he triplicates his eyes surface to prove himself defenseless? Well, Heidi, my chihuaua, can obtain the same effect with her famous imitation of an upside-down baby seal praying to be spared and not transformed into a no-stitches furry case for-Pad
Sorry, for the gore description, Heidi, but In business I have to spend all my arguments and these gentlemen here are all sensible to politically correct, when properly exposed, aren't you? Was I saying? Oh, yes, job, intentional traveller, intentional Italybyebyer.
Ah, Yes of course...a few prize... But even more ever-since-copied campaigns, plus recent experiences with top luxury, asian an russian markets- which never harms - a mid-obsolete website, which still does its job I guess – and very, very determined a man to win the Nobel for Peace for "A life dedicated to making people change their mind about this silly don' judge a book by its cover" – Of course not, you moron! You must remove the price tag before stealing it, then run hard, get rid of the cover and only when at a distance you can read the book on your hammock, and finally judge it, assumed you are one if those individuals who read book that can inglobate your judgment with no particular stress. Not those book which spontaneously catch fire if you try.
I'more into book that judge me when I'm finished them and well this is why I 'm so damn depressed and happy to. Here temperature is 10° and closest sea lays 150 mls south.
Hurry up, therefore, please. If you don't find me on skype I might be in the backyard insulting back a book who doesn't know who I think I am.
Covers? Pfui. I'd go for all white cover and title in Bauer Bodoni in the top part; no author. The author must disappear in a book, after all, it's rule nr 1°: why spoiling the deal right from the first page?
The title of my book: The man with no title
Author: This is a book, not a singing contes or a course of self-esteem.
Cover: A paper bag large enough to fit under your shirt and walk backward toward the exit unnoticed.
