bible marketing

don’t get me wrong, the bible is an amazing book almost beyond description.  as a christian i believe it contains actual words from God.  which is quite amazing when you think about it.

it’s also available online

targetted messaging

i  like this sign a lot.  it’s obvious who it’s aimed at and what they need (not) to do.  and the final sentence in brackets is very ominous: “If necessary we will telephone Mr Smith”.

“big ben and the houses of parliament”.  in quotes.

horse !

Here’s Kate.  she’s the friend i mentioned at the Interesting conference who appeared on the front of Horse magazine which lead to me having the word ‘horse’ stuck in my brain which when repeated for long enough starts to lose its meaning at turn back in to sounds. 

most words do that if you say them long enough and really think about them.  it’s a bit like walking.  if you really think about what you are doing it all gets a bit tricky.

so there you go.  i wasn’t making it up !

chiltern way extension

extensions are very popular at the moment.  although, the chiltern way is the chiltern way isn’t it ?  that like saying the ‘stonehenge extension’.  it’s just not right.  not that i’m an expert on national footpaths.  just so you know.
