Digital Nativity. Very App.t

'If you want to achieve something incredible, getting staff on board with a real sense of pride in what they are doing can achieve real integration'.

Read Neil's full essay on integration in Campaign.


Avid readers of our blog will know that one of our very first posts explains the reasoning behind our ox logo:

'The winged ox is the icon of St. Luke - the apostle we named our company after. We wanted a name that brought the ideas of creativity and curing together and St. Luke is patron saint of both artists and doctors. A bit grandiose - but there are very few problems out there that human creativity can't remedy.'

The big man himself

This approach runs through the veins of the agency and is something we wanted to extend across our blog, with this in mind, we have renamed it Oxblood (celebration, applause, fanfare etc etc).

As ever, the same rules apply...

1) All posts should encourage conversation
2) All comments should be constructive
3) Be sensible - don't reveal anything confidential
4) Respect the poster - don't edit or delete unless it contravenes the laws above
5) Post your name!
6) Mind your language

We hope you like it, do come and visit and let us know what you think.

Christmas Costumes

Readers may remember seeing a picture of my new puppy Stanley on Wimbledon Common with his friend Carlos, the Great Dane.

For those of you who didn’t, here he is modeling his new winter coat.

As the festive period gets underway, invitations to Christmas parties are in abundance with fancy dress being a mandatory requirement for guests.

This has resulted in me looking for a suitable costume for Stanley so he can join in the merriment. My search uncovered some of the most hilarious outfits and I thought it might be fun to share them here.

First up the more conventional choice: Father Christmas.

Next up some more seasonal favourites…

And for those dogs hankering to be Rudolf…

Or Blitzen...

And for all the angelic pups out there…

For those who claim to have superpowers…

For those in search of a temporary species change…

And for those with owners who want to go the whole hog there’s always this approach…

I think I might just stick with a bit of tinsel round Stanley's neck...

How colour affects our purchasing habits

Even though this research has come from the US I think it's an interesting insight in to how colours affect our habits.
