Patriotic BW clients support the Queen’s Jubilee

June 1st, 2012 · Chris · No Comments

Several of our clients have joined the swell of goodwill in celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee with their own special contributions.

Lovells Estate Agents, for example, chose to reflect the company’s own traditions by recalling how it helped celebrate a previous Diamond Jubilee – Queen Victoria’s, in 1897!

Guernsey Gas simply used the ‘royal connection’ of its Broil King range of BBQs (Monarch, Sovereign, Imperial) on a patriotic Union Jack, 4 page cover wrap in the Globe newspaper as a prelude to the coming Bank Holiday weekend.

Happy Diamond Jubilee!

We hope this festival gets the exposure as it deserves! Read more

Olympic Games Tickets

May 22nd, 2012 · Paul · No Comments

I have to say I am beginning to like the Olympic brand. That doesn’t mean I like the logo, I don’t. But I do like the way they have hidden it away on the new ticket designs for the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games.

Surely, if the EU is forcing website owners to update their sites to protect users against being tracked and whatnot, then they should force users to update their web browsers too, to protect them against much more serious problems like viruses that exploit old browsers. Even better, if they did this, then they would be running modern browsers featuring a ‘do not track’ option meaning websites wouldn’t need to alert users. One last point, how can websites store a users decision if they want to use cookies or not? With a cookie, but do we need to ask permission to store that cookie too? And if they say no? What then!?
