800+ followers
3 YouTube videos
1 viral YouTube interview video
2 full journals
5 series of booknotes
1 game of thrones note series
Co-founded 1 blog website
Published 30+ blog articles

Thanks to everyone who has hit that like button, saved a post, followed and supported me one way or another, it really means a lot.

Let's raise a glass to many more years of nudenotes in the future - cheers!


#nudenotes Journal 2

To celebrate I have just released the flick-through video of my second journal. Enjoy!

The highlight of this journal for me in my 25-part book notes series on Douglas Davis’s book 'Creative Strategy and the Business of Design' and my mini note series celebrating the final series of Game of Thrones, which lead to my first 100 likes post on instagram.

Work has already started on journal number 3.

I have a tonne of ideas for more nudenotes video content, I just need to find the time to work on them.

Watch this space.


This week’s recap notes: Skills for Success Based on an article I read a while ago on Tanmay Vora blog.

What skills do you need for a successful career?

These are a list of seven skills for success you should learn to help you in the robotic automated takeover of the future!

There was this great quote used in the blog by Socrates :
"The secret of change is to focus all your energy, not in fighting the old, but on building the new"

The only way to beat the machines is to focus inward, develop cross disciplinary mindset, learn new skills and be agile in your creative approach.


10 Career Behaviours That Could Kill Your Career', inspired by an article by jack Welch

Do you feel like you’re stalling or faltering in your career?

Living for the weekend may sound great, but this is a complacency mindset (no. 10 on the list), and it can become part of the downward spiral to career death.

The first step to solving the problem is to identify the problem.

Do you identify with any of these behaviours?

I’m sure we all have at one time or another.

Whether you act now or later will determine your future career trajectory.

As Jack says in his article:
"If you recognise your own behaviours here, make it your mission to change them - before you have to. In time, you're likely to see your career move from a stall to a soar".
