I recently discovered Charles Frith's blog, Punk Planning, which details his journeys through China as a planner from the advertising world.
(FYI: In the advertising world, the planner is the bridge between the consumers and the writers/producers. They're typically the ones running focus groups and interviews, and are responsible for crafting creative briefs to capture the essence of the consumers' viewpoints.)
The writing in the blog is a little bit too rambly for my personal taste, but there are frequent gems, such as:
- These beautiful porcelain cups. (Original post.)
- An interesting post about his visit to the Tier 4 city of Ba Zhou, read entire post here. Highlights within include:
- Polythene sheet insulated windows... with a Snoopy decoration hanging in the middle of it.
