Having spent two weeks glued to the Olympics, I am as anxious as the next Brit that we don’t lose the impetus and continue the fabulous development of sport in Britain. But the last two weeks have demonstrated another area at which we beat the world hands down – one that will need just as much attention as our sporting endeavours if we are to continue our world beating performance.

Our Managing Director, Richard Morris, has been up to his musings again in The New Statesmen. This time he’s talking about Microsofts new tablet offering, Surface, and why he thinks it will work. Here’s his piece…
Names are funny things. Take for example “Starkiller”. It’s not a bad name. It’s pretty appropriate for a character in a Sci Fi story – probably a bad guy, someone you wouldn’t want to mess with. But the world would have been a poorer place if George Lucas had left the main protagonist of his most famous work with that moniker, instead of the more evocative (and appropriate) “Skywalker”.
Our Managing Director, Richard Morris, has been musing on the dangers of gambling on IPOs in The New Statesman. Here’s his piece…
Merchant banks do apparently gamble vast sums on hunches.
Watching the Facebook IPO launch on Friday struck me as a typical example of Emperors New Clothes syndrome. Mainly because I’ve lived through it before.

A remedy for January blues and a New Year’s Resolution
A recent design industry survey suggested that many agencies feel their clients not only want more work for less money but perhaps more concerning for us creative types is that they also appear to want much safer design solutions as well. These are solutions that won’t cause too many difficult conversations within the business nor do they result in additional challenges over and above those dealt with day to day. We all know that safer solutions will not enhance, our own or indeed our client’s reputations and that ‘safe’ will ultimately not make the world a more interesting place to live.
The human tribe is a collective of storytellers – capturing experience through myth, legend, fireside tales or paintings on the cave wall. We communicate, empathise and find historical continuity and meaning through tales told, stories heard and images experienced and remembered.
In the commercial world, companies too have their stories to tell. The challenge is, not many know what makes a good story or how to present their story in a way that will really engage their audience.
