Hello. It’s great to be back.
It’s almost mid-January, and that means the festivities are well and truly over for another year (and we don’t just mean The Motion Awards).
Whether your notepad is packed full of resolutions or you’re already back on the cakes and biscuits, there’s still one thing we need to do before we can officially kick start 2022.
So, grab yourself a coffee, take a seat, and take a look through our most viewed Quickies of 2021. Congratulations to everyone that made a list, and here’s to another incredible year of creativity and inspiration.
