Somewhere over the rainbow.

The colours in the familiar children’s “I can sing a Rainbow” song are “red and yellow and pink and green, orange and purple and blue.” You may also remember the tune. However, this song is a little misleading, as the colours of the rainbow that Isaac Newton originally named only had five primary colours: red, [...]

The 3 R’s circa 2009

In education circles, I was always told that the three R’s were Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic. It is a little confusing, as only one of them starts with R!

Working with Sideline, a TV and DVD production company, we created the large-scale 3D letters from polystyrene foam. Unusually, they were left in their original [...]

Blown Away

The amount of information available on the internet these days is amazing, but finding the correct information quickly is a constant problem. Google seems to be the default search engine for the past decade or so, but they have a number of additional strings to their bow to make it easier to find new or [...]

Twists and Turns

Conversation is like being on journey with no map or ‘Sat Nav’, you just don’t know where you may end up. The “journey” in question was a meeting with our website designer, David Behan.
