Gone to the races

No, we haven’t gone to Cheltenham this week, as we prefer the spinning of wheels to the gallop of hooves in the racing that we watch (we also prefer more than 1 horsepower). That isn’t to say we don’t have an interest in horses – we do, but it’s more in what they wear. Let [...]

Make the Big Switch to…

Bord Gáis Energy now intend to supply both Natural Gas and Electricity to householders and businesses alike with the launch of their “The Big Switch” campaign. They guarantee that householders can save a minimum of 10% on their electricity bills, compared with ESB, and invite people to switch energy suppliers using thebigswitch.ie. website.

Last year he sat cross-legged above the heads of shoppers on a canopy at the front of the Henry Street store, as part of the “Magic of Christmas” promotion. He endured wind, [...]

As Seen On TV

Yes, we can now use this cringe-worthy cliché yet again, as the letters we created for “Class Act” are on full display on the set of RTE’s Sunday evening programme. 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 [...]
