Hi, my name is Dirk Assent and I’m the editor of the Isle of Ideas. For fun and income I run an advertising agency by day (and sometimes by night) and in between I wander the web. In both worlds I constantly stumble upon fascinating things. The ones that really stick out I collect here.

Although I never bothered to define something like a content philosophy for the Isle it somehow positioned itself at the cross-section of popular culture, art, design, technology, advertising and ideas.

In a nutshell: On the Isle Of Ideas you find bits and pieces or just random thoughts on ideas, communication, design, film, music and all the other stuff that is at least remotely connected to what I do for fun and income.

If you like what you see join me on the Isle and feel free to comment or get in touch.
