Copywriter Robin Stam defies rules, challenges conventions and loathes the status quo in advertising. After five hectic years in Dutch advertising he studied at the Miami Ad School in Hamburg and worked at Duval Guillaume Brussels. Now he's back in Holland again to work for Lemz Amsterdam.

If you've worked for six years in Dutch advertising and if you went to almost every advertising party and you've been active in a young creatives organisation, you can't help meeting a lot of people. So it wasn't a complete surprise that I happened to know the new creative team that walked in the Lemz building this week: Rogier and Matthijs.
And slowly I see more and more people again. Last week I saw a former Young Dogs boardmember at the terrace under my agency and today I met an art-director who was on the ferry back to the central station. Advertising is a small world.
Talking about small worlds, in my hometown Alkmaar there are also people with creative ideas. Some friends of mine at NmTrix, a 3D animation agency, made the nice internet film that you can see above. It's a better than most advertising agencies promote themselves. Or your name must be Grimm Gallun Holtappels.
