Understanding Erik

“It’s not you, it’s me…” No-one ever wants to hear that, do they? Or how about “…you are too much an individual for this agency…”? Erik Kessels suffered both of these let-downs early in his career as he told us at the first in a series of lectures organised by D&AD North. Perhaps he shouldn’t have worn a chicken suit on his first day of work.
