It's been a corker of a week - mostly thanks to the news that we won the pitch to develop the comms for the GLA's ‘A Summer Like No Other’, a programme of free cultural events hosted in London throughout summer 2012. We can't wait to get started.

We were thrilled to win a silver award at the London International Awards last night for our Mooncup 'Love Your Vagina' song. Here's a picture of a very happy St Luke's Creative Partner Julian Vizard and Mooncup Marketing Manager Kath Clements accepting the award.

The song comprises over 25 pet names women call their vagina, which were submitted to a poll we ran last year. The poll received over 14,000 different names and over 50,000 votes - and it's still going! The song has received over 250,000 views on YouTube and coverage on Absolute Radio, ELLE and The Daily Star.

Enter your name to the poll and download the song from iTunes.

PM endorses Local Business Accelerators

Applications are flooding in for Local Business Accelerators, our latest campaign for the Newspaper Society. Almost 500 local newspapers are activating the initiative in their communities. They'll be seeking out Britain’s most promising fledgling businesses and supporting them with free advertising and professional mentoring.

Endorsing our campaign the Prime Minister said: "The Local Business Accelerators campaign will help provide the boost that our smaller British businesses need right now. By joining forces to launch this excellent initiative, local newspapers are demonstrating their commitment and providing exactly the sort of practical, hands-on support that will help young local businesses succeed and grow.”

The first of three full page press ads, designed by Ed and Dave has appeared in each participating title. Simultaneously campaign ambassador, Deborah Meaden, has been busy leading a national PR campaign to promote the scheme.

Top girls still top

Last night I went to see Caryl Churchill's play Top Girls, directed by Max Stafford-Clark and starring Suranne Jones.

"Top Girls is a wonderfully provocative study of powerful women in 80s Britain, revealing the compromises made in the quest for success, and what happens to those left behind."

Even though the play is set in the 1980s the topic of women being successful over men in the work place is still very much apparent in 2011 and that at today's current pace of recruitment it would take 20 years for one in three directors in the boardroom to be female.

The first act sees the main character Marlene holding a fictional dinner party with 5 historical women that like her have been successful but have sacrificed to be so. It did make me think who I would have at my dinner party... who would you invite?

Top Girls is on at the Trafalgar Studios in London until Saturday 29th October, it is a wonderful production that has you laughing one minute and close to tears the next, go and see it quick!

Day Of The Dead!

I'm not talking about Zombie movies people! I'm talking about the amazing Mexican tradition of honoring their dearly departed. The Wellcome Collection is one of the coolest galleries in London and on the 5th November they have some fantastic events that will help us to honor our lost ones and party!

Personally I'm going straight for the decorating 'Sugar Skulls' activity. If that's too ghoulish for you try your hand at playing an Aztec instrument, skeleton dancing, the list is endlessly. I'm not missing this and neither should you!

The fact that I'm going to the Ghostface Killah / MF Doom gig at the Roundhouse that very evening seems to make so much sense!:)

I snapped this sassy car on Great Marlborough St and could not help thinking that if Betty Boop had a car this one would be it!

I have a question for y'all:

If you could customize your car which cartoon character would you pick for inspiration??

We read an exclusive, never published Anthony Horowitz story, called "The Double Eagle has Landed".

RNIB Autumn campaign launch

Our new RNIB campaign launched today - focusing on the loss of the written word on everyday objects that we take for granted.
The campaign covers print, radio and online - all coming soon to the website!

Beyrouth Cool!

On a whim I decided to take a little trip to Beirut. They have to my surprise a really cool underground music scene and i was quite keen to check it out. Whilst strolling down a side street in downtown Beirut, I happened upon a piece of 'Banksy' stencil style street art with the witty caption: "Art Is For Everyone Except Ugly People". As there was a luxury Mercedes Parked directly underneath, I'm inclined to think it really is a Banksy. What other street artist can afford a Merc for a getaway car?:)

My next favorite pic is of the 'Jealousy Mosaic'. This mosaïc decorated the entrance of a wealthy home located at the heart of Byzantine Beirut. The purpose of the inscription,Envy is an evil; it has beauty however/ it eats out the eyes and the heart of the envious, was to protect the inhabitants against envy and evil.

So naturally the next step to guard against the evil eye would be to hook yourself up with a 'Hamsa' a hand shaped talisman The hamsa was a bit pricey but totally worth it. It looks fantastic! Evil Eye be gone!

A Majestic win!

We're very excited to welcome Majestic Wine Warehouse to the St Luke's family. They're a great brand with big ambitions and we can't wait to get started.

It means that our fridges, currently bursting with Bulmers and Strongbow, will have to give up some room for a selection of Majestic's best. On second thoughts, maybe we just get a bigger fridge.

The shape of things to come: Sculpture

Last week I went to see this Exhibition at The Saatchi Gallery. Showcasing the work of 20 sculptors, both up and coming and well established. Some of the work is very original, I particularly liked this - thats action packed, energetic sculpture for you! It's on until October 26th so if and when the wet weather comes back I would highly recommend a visit.

Andrey Muratov is a director of film and photography from Moscow, Russia. This video, titled 'GTLK', addresses components of space and considering the video is literally a ball of ice melting, the unique filming and editing makes it very interesting to watch.

Over the past year his non-photoshopped double exposure images have received much praise, with certain photos getting viewed over 50,000 times on flickr.

Today our 'Love Your Vagina' song for Mooncup launches! It has somehow already reached number 19 in the iTunes vocal charts which is pretty exciting.

The song is created from names submitted to a poll we ran last year asking women what they lovingly call theirs. We received over 14,000 different names and this our way of saying thank you to everyone who took part.

The song was filmed at Proud Cabaret and was written by composer Simon Bass.

erm...its Ci-der!?!

Taking inspiration from Stella Artois’ ad to launch Stella ‘ci-dre’ (pronounced cee-dra), Strongbow took more of a down-to-earth approach to show the nation how to say ‘Cider’!!

It had a fab response with over 600 likes on facebook and some very positive comments!
