The answer is ‘Polystyrene’

Social Media never ceases to amaze me, it can be a link to an interesting site or to something completely random. The flow of information, news and conversation is constant and endless. I asked a question on twitter late yesterday evening (Thursday) and was quite surprised at the number of responses I received, considering it [...]

Take comfort from the Social Media political onslaught.

With the Dáil dissolved and a General Election set for the February 25th, we will undoubtedly see our political parties, supporters and candidates bombard us with leaflets, posters and billboards spewing out their plans, dreams and promises to win our votes. The trouble is they have a new tool to exploit, and that is ‘Social [...]

Back to the drawing board

The first spark of an idea or that sudden light-bulb moment usually involves scribbling a sketch and writing it down somewhere. Whether it’s a creative drawing or inventive concept we like to put pen to paper, to make sure we don’t loose the train of thought. This is the the beginning of design and many [...]

I thought it would be topical, particularly with media talk of a cabinet reshuffle and the recent resignations of Fianna Fáil’s Willie O’Dea and the Green Party’s Trevor [...]

Says What it is and it is What it Says

We were bouncing a few ideas around the office and workshop the other day, looking for some inspiration and a new project, when we came across some clear perspex table tops that we had left over from the Irish Blog Awards. So the discussion then switched to: “We could do this?”, “What if we tried [...]

The winning caption

We would like to congratulate Garman and Roseanne on their winning entry to the competition that we ran at the 2009 Blog Awards. It seems that he already has a grasp of “this reading and writing malarkey” and we hope that this will give him the encouragement to continue and follow in his mother’s footsteps [...]

Irish Blog Awards

We are pleased to be sponsoring a competition at this years Irish Blog Awards, being held at Cork International Airport Hotel. The event is promising to match the excitement and drama of the Oscar’s ceremony, who are conveniently having their show on Sunday to avoid clashing with the Cork event. The image is the front [...]
