For the Want of a Tree Surgeon

OK, where am I going with this? It looks like it’s going to be a be a heck of a leap from expanded polystyrene foam to a tree surgeon, but there is a link, a video and hopefully a bit of a story too. I’d better get started… Weedle is an online service that allows [...]

Bottling it

Some people are afraid of it, some are just ignorant of it and others want to measure it … Social Media. Whether it’s blogging, Facebook or Twitter, there are various way to publish, inform and communicate to your friends, your customers and to the world, about absolutely everything and anything. It does sound quite intimidating, [...]

Apple iPad following our trend

It has arrived. The Apple iPad, no, that’s old news now. The media hype surrounding its launch has been disappointing, with many journalists and industry experts commenting that there is nothing really innovative about the device, and that it is just a super-sized version of the iPhone. Well, we do have something new and innovative, [...]

National Chocolate Day

When you take away the religious element of Easter Sunday, you could be forgiven for thinking that the day is devoted to the consumption and worship of all things chocolate. The major brands, like Nestle, Cadburys and Mars, and the smaller artisan chocolatiers all do their best to get their products onto the shelves so that we can savour [...]

Polystyrene Politicians

The original idea behind this post was to show you examples of signs that made we created from expanded polystyrene foam (EPS), and which feature government ministers.

Home for a mobile phone

In April, we created this Samsung Tocco Ultra mobile phone replica for our client, Kick Communications, for the launch of this model onto the Irish market. The launch and subsequent media coverage proved to be very successful but it left the giant cell phone taking up space in their Donnybrook offices. We were pleased to [...]

Formula 1 is go, go, dough.

The flag has dropped and we are into the start of a new school year, when kids across the country are encouraged to reach their potential and beyond, no matter what discipline they choose. An example of this is F1 in Schools. This is a unique challenge that enables second-level students to get their hands [...]

Making it Big

This article has been gathering dust in my draft folder for a number of months. It was getting to the stage where I was going to delete the story as some missing parts never materialised… Well they did today, only 3 months late and on the wrong side of the world. Mr Pat Phelan, from [...]

Coffee to go

This is going to be a caffeine fuelled post and it’s not because I’ve been drinking espresso’s all afternoon. I am going to try and write about three coffee related items and show how they are linked to polystyrene. That would be enough to drive anyone to coffee, so we might as well make it [...]

Going ape for Styrofoam bananas ??

The recession must be hitting hard in America as people are turning to desperate measures to make ends meet. But we can’t understand the logic behind this gorilla-suited woman stealing display bananas made from Styrofoam. No, it’s not an April fool prank but something very weird and unusual. (Via Fox11 online) So why would you [...]
