Pitch & Presentation

Posted by in Thinking | No Comments

Now as print experts, we are used to printing pitch documents at short notice, making sure the content is presented beautifully.  When one of our agency clients asked to get involved in their client’s latest pitch, it was different to say the least. Whilst there was some printed collateral included, postcards, menu offers, seed packets, […]

Giving Back….

Posted by in Thinking | No Comments

I was asked last year, after doing some fundraising, to be a trustee of a local charity Alex’s Wish.  The charity has been on my radar since it was created in 2010 by Emma & Andy Hallam (I know a bit confusing!).  Their son Alex was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy just after his third […]

Web Production

Posted by in Thinking | No Comments

Thought we’d share some images of a recent project we managed.  The project was a door drop campaign, being distributed to just over 2,500,000 homes.  The production method used a web inline facility, put simply this means plain white paper goes into the machine on a reel and finished product appears at the other end!  I’ve […]

I have loved Bryan Adams for nearly 20 years!  I can’t even remember how I was introduced to him, I suspect it was something to do with a certain song from a Robin Hood film when I was a teenage girl, but I have loved him and his music ever since! I got the opportunity […]

Written by Jim Shields, who owns and runs Twist & Shout Communications, based in Leicester.  A self-confessed disciple of new-marketing Guru Seth Godin, Jim tries to spread the word at every opportunity that we, the people, have the means of production at […]

Emma turns 40

Posted by in Thinking | No Comments

Hard to believe, but on the 2nd May I turned 40.  Age isn’t something I have an issue with, life is so short, all birthdays should be greeted with excitement. From shopping days, to spa days to concerts, followed by a birthday night out with friends & clients in Birmingham in the middle of May, […]

Will it make the boat go faster…?

Posted by in Thinking | No Comments

I love this book, it’s such a simple but effective concept. Will It Make The Boat Go Faster? was born out the story of an ordinary guy achieving something extraordinary. In 1998, consistently failing to medal or even make the final of major regattas, the GB Men’s Rowing Eight decided to fundamentally change the way […]
