3B's @AdamFisher has written a super piece extolling the virtues of adopting the wonderful new world of Responsive template design.
Back in May 3B Digital were delighted to be approached by the Royal Albert Hall about a wall mural they'd commissioned from Peter Blake. The mural featured over 400 of the most famous artists to have appeared at the historic venue over the years.
Being serious just for a moment, this whole nude celebrity thing brings a very real concern to the fore, and it's got absolutely nothing to do with hacking, theft or even privacy... it has everything to do with common sense.
The advent of social media, and our acceptance & adoption of digital technology in general, affords us all the opportunity to use our brains when employing the toys now available to us.
Happy New Year to you all - I hope by now you are in the swing of all things 2014 and the new year finds you refreshed. 2013 was very kind to us here at G&I towers what with winning the Wandsworth business award for Marketing & Social Media and the addition of our Senior Account Manager Heather McKay to the team - all working to drive forward more successful campaigns and events. No doubt you have started the year sorting things out for the way ahead - perhaps (if we may be so bold) this might include booking a place on one of our social media training courses...
We're very happy to have met a new player in the local marketing community.
David Wright of YellowPrintShop came to see us to discuss their print offering. We're delighted to note their broad range of print items and genuin;ly competitive tariff, and will be using them ourselves very soon.
Emma Jane will host a special Twitter training session at Ben's Canteen, Earlsfield on Thursday 18th September from 7.30am. Attendees will hear Emma Jane present 10 top tips for marketing via Twitter, PLUS have the opportunity to network with other local businesses and enjoy a delicious breakfast from the Ben's Canteen menu. At the end of the talk, Emma Jane will answer as many Twitter questions as attendees can ask.
Some extraordinary new plans have been submitted for five blocks of appartments at Battersea's Power Station development.
3B Digital's Alex Bremer read with interest today a short piece by Rhodri Marsden in the iPaper relating to his own frsutration with targeted advertising. To be fair this frustration is shared by many but it is worth a moment to consider the alternative; a return to the mass untargeted "carpet-bomb" approach of just a few years ago.
Alex makes the point that he'd "much rather be exposed to messages and brands that I'm actually interested in than those that mean nothing" to him.
Same deal as always. Local tech, entrepreneurs and small businesses get together for a drink or two. Informal place to seek out interesting people/ideas/freelancers/businesses in a local setting.... come join us all for another Silicon Junction Meetup. It's a chance to meet new contacts, local businesses, find work, find freelancers, and ultimately see how we can all work together in Battersea (also known as the Clapham Junction area).
We had a good turn out last time round, and you all asked for more so let's do more!
Let us know you're coming... or just show up! :)
Date: Tuesday, September 9 2014
Time: 7pm onwards
An IT colleague of mine recently told me about Code Club and I thought it might be of interest to the community here in Wandsworth.
Christmas has seen quite a lot of events happen around Battersea, with some of them adopting more traditional methods of promotion than others. This year we noticed that events like the White Christmas Fair and the Hanne & Co. Charity Auction are using social media to promote their events very effectively.
