July 2016

Well it’s been a while since I’ve posted in the journal and for the sake of keeping somewhat up to date I feel it is about time I get back to it.

The lack of writing has not been for lack of work as we’ve been extremely busy at Brainstorm Design launching a whole bunch of new brands and getting them of to a great start.

I return with some great insights and today I wanted to share this one from you. The person is Thad Cox and he’s an old mate of mine from back in the UK when we were both young and reckless. It was great to get in touch again recently and I have to say that it is thanks to Social Media. That little gem that keeps people on opposite sides of the world connected. I know it has it’s flaws too. We all get slightly addicted to the ever constant flow of information and nothing seems to surprise us anymore, but it can also become a very valuable tool for business as well.

Well Thad is not only doing some extremely beautiful work but he has also set himself the task of waking up every morning at 5:00am and writing a blog which is rapidly becoming a fantastic source of information for designers around the world. I for one am hooked on the feed.

Recently Thad Cox Design created a great little gem named the Social Media Playbook. I know there are a lot of people out there trying to come to grips with Social Media and how to make it work for you. Well this might just be the insight you require.

Please check it out and I would also highly recommend following Thad Cox Design on the social media feed of your choice. Pretty sure he’s got all the main streams covered.
