GOODSTUPH’s founder Pat Law brings with her over 15 years of digital and social advertising experience. Often referred to as the bitch of advertising, she rose through ranks from Publicis to Leo Burnett and Ogilvy.
At GOODSTUPH, Law grew the business from a negative $10,000 loan to a multi-million agency within the first 3 years, serving as both CEO and ECD. Never one to rest on her laurels, Law has since expanded the agency into Jakarta, Indonesia, and Bangkok, Thailand.
In 2017, she was appointed to the Cannes Lions jury.
In 2018, she was appointed chairperson to Hall of Fame, one of Singapore’s longest-running advertising award show.
Law was named one of Singapore’s Most Influential Creative Directors for two consecutive years in 2017 and 2018, being the only other female out of 15 creative directors to do so.
Pat resides in Singapore with her fiancée and chihuahua.
Tame Impala (Kevin Parker) has emerged as one of the most influential voices of the last decade. His latest album serves as a deep reflection on the passage of time - The Slow Rush. "'The Slow Rush' is an extraordinarily detailed opus," said Pitchfork. "I have to marvel that all this sound and history comes from Parker alone, picking every string and twisting every knob." His last album, Currents (Interscope) was released in 2015 and was just certified Platinum in the U.S. It earned him a second GRAMMY nomination and word-wide commercial success. The New York Times labeled it a "a tour de force" and Pitchfork said, "nearly every proper song on 'Currents' is a revelatory statement of Parker's range and increasing expertise as a producer, arranger, songwriter, and vocalist while maintaining the essence of Tame Impala." NPR noted, "[Parker] advocates for constant reinvention... That commitment to evolution helps make Tame Impala an unlikely but worthy candidate for major stardom."
He first toured the U.S. in 2010, playing small clubs for crowds of 200. A handful of trips to the U.S. later and thanks to the ravenous demand of fans for a transcendent live performance, Tame Impala has gone on to headline festivals and theaters around the world and released four full length albums - Innerspeaker, Lonerism , Currents and The Slow Rush. As a writer and producer Parker has collaborated with Travis Scott, SZA, Lady Gaga, Mark Ronson, Kanye West, Kali Uchis, Theophilus London, Miguel, A$AP Rocky, Kendrick Lamar and more.
In 2019 Tame Impala headlined multiple major festivals including Coachella, Primavera, Lollapalooza, ACL and more. He debuted two new songs on Saturday Night Live and sold out arenas around the world including two nights at New York City’s Madison Square Garden and two nights at the Los Angeles Forum.
