"Hopefully it's just a blip but our industry is becoming bland: obsessed with process and methodology over creative output. It's hard to find work these days that make us gasp, rock backwards and forwards in maniacal laughter or simply gets stuck in our heads for days afterwards. I cannot wait for the emotional rollercoaster that judging the Chip Shop Awards will hopefully take me on."
