Challenging Design

Cyber Security Challenge (CSC) aims to uncover hidden cyber security talent from across the UK through competitions, challenges and learning programs, and then work to develop their skill sets to help them enter the industry. It’s an exciting world, and their work uncovers some immense talent (we attempted one of the competitions, and it’s fair… more

Personal Space

With 20 years working closely with many companies we know that a brand should span every touch-point, whether it’s taking your number from your business card, getting directions from your website or stepping into your workspace for the first time. People should feel connected to your brand. From an internal perspective, a branded workspace helps… more

Summer Snippets

A Cut Above the Rest Simon visited the Matisse exhibition at the Tate Modern this month as one of over 200 Better Bankside levy payers, and it was always going to be something of a highlight. Watching films of Henri Matisse at work with colour and form demonstrated the gulf between being artistic and a… more


Thinking logically

Fancy a Challenge?

Sam says: “We wanted to create something that everyone can take part in and to inspire others to take up the challenge by running and getting fit.

Basically, this means an article that uses significantly more text than your usual web page – so for instance, a report, narrative story, detailed cased study or guide. But it’s not just about amount… more

Not again

A while ago I blogged about an online service called ‘Catch notes’ – a really useful (and free) note taking app that synced with the cloud, enabled sharing and collaboration and had a really cool user interface. It rather abruptly went from ‘next big thing’ to ‘closed forever’ in the space of a few weeks. Well,… more

Loving every drop

We met Anglian Water on our stand at the PR Show last year, where they spotted our promotional showreel. They said they’d get in touch when some work came through, and as you can see they were true to their word. Anglian Water is the largest water and water recycling company in the UK, and… more
