The power of a good communications campaign brief

Wednesday 25th May 2016 | Tagged as: Communication, Ellie Bunce, Brief

Author: Ellie Bunce

We have received a wide range of briefs over the years - one-liner emails, quick telephone discussions with our own back-of-a-fag-packet notes, face-to-face meetings and detailed 20-page written documents. It’s not how the brief is delivered that I’m interested in… but rather the information included in the brief. When it comes to a campaign brief, the age-old saying of ‘the more you put in, the more you get out’, is definitely relevant.

Bottle up or yes we Can?

Wednesday 18th May 2016 | Tagged as: Packaging, Michael Grass, Bottle, Can

Author: Michael Grass

Aaah, the can and the bottle. A classic pairing spotted in many an ice bucket on a hot afternoon and a winning combo fit to challenge even the most iconic double acts (Laurel & Hardy, Richard & Judy, Batman & Robin… the list goes on). Having worked for some time with clients and media in the packaging sector, it was during a recent trip to the local newsagent’s that got me thinking about these two very different yet so similar containers.

You’ve got a friend in me – the implacable rise of Facebook’s social sphere of influence

Wednesday 11th May 2016 | Tagged as: social media, Michael Grass, Facebook

Author: Michael Grass

I remember having a conversation with Dad sometime in 2010 about Facebook. My father, a seasoned Communications Manager, dismissed the social site as “a fad that will struggle to find a place in business”, before signing off with what can only be described with the benefit of hindsight as an ironic statement: “trust me, it won’t last”.

3D printing at drupa 2016

Wednesday 04th May 2016 | Tagged as: Printing, Greg Mills, 3D Printing, drupa 2016

Author: Greg Mills

Although for me the word “game-changing” generally falls into the same category of overused words as “unique” and “strategic”, a look at the impact that 3D printing is already having and could yet have suggests that game-changing really could be an appropriate adjective to use to describe this technology.  Although more accurately called “additive manufacturing”, the adoption of 3D printing is picking up pace (almost 133,000 3D printers were shipped worldwide in 2014, 68 % up on 2013) and we’re starting to see regular stories about how the technology is being used for a huge variety of purposes – from bra sizing to road-ready cars to pharmaceutical drugs to prosthetic feet for ducks and hoofs for horses.

Packaging in Asia: a Japanese edition

Wednesday 27th April 2016 | Tagged as: Signage, Packaging, Cerys Traylor

Author: Cerys Traylor

The Land of the Rising Sun…Japan. Just over 3 weeks ago, I hopped on a plane, had a hectic transfer in Beijing and eventually arrived in Tokyo, to begin my two week adventure around these amazing islands. I arrived during the heart of the ‘Sakura’ (cherry blossom) season and this was reflected throughout the country, from the bright neon lights of Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto, to the mountainous regions and the Japanese Alps.

Touch the future with Interior and Textile printing

Wednesday 20th April 2016 | Tagged as: Interior design, Daniel Porter, Textile printing

Author: Daniel Porter

As drupa fast approaches - in fact it’s only 41 days away now - I’m curious to discover how many exhibitors will be featuring some of the exciting new applications that are currently on a rapid rise in the interior décor and textile printing sectors. It’s an area that has sparked my interest recently, as I’ve been more immersed in these industry sectors, and it never ceases to amaze me just what is now possible by the constant innovation of wide format digital inkjet printing. I’ve even been able to pass on some tips in relation to architectural films to a friend who’s currently in the throes of a ‘Grand Design’ project, and I’m likely to see the end result of these digitally printed films in-situ very soon.
