Company branding

I’ve looked at company branding a little recently and if a company isn’t doing so well they often re-brand their products and the company. Nike make sports shoes and trainers and they re-designed their shoes and changed the way the company did business. They had a bad reputation for the way they treated their workforce and so changed that and tried to produce their products in a more sustainable and environmentally way. Everything they do is part of the brand; part of their public persona; part of their image.  Can we apply branding to ourselves to improve business success? To help us get a job? To help us get higher pay? (more…)


Cameron’s Broken Britain…

MANOR 2 004

David Cameron pledged his government would “turn around the lives of the 120,000 most troubled families” by the next election as he said his broken society analysis is “back at the top of my political agenda.

I’m not satisfied that we’re doing all we can. I want us to look at toughening up the conditions for those who are out of work and receiving benefits … and speeding up our efforts to get all those who can work back to work.”

Typical Tory, get tough on the poorest in society. I have seen people who are mentally ill refused benefits that they are entitled to. Is that fair? Is it right that the medical examinations should be done by a foreign company? (more…)


A Sunday rant!

To appreciate art you need imagination; even more to become involved.

A Sunday rant!

“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” Albert Einstein.

I think we are only limited by our imaginations. My Neodigital Art appears to be appreciated by more people both online and offline. I can of course share it easily and it’s easy to do and so very socially inclusive. The people who rabbit on about social inclusion tend to be the people who think they are all so; exclusive. They deserve a super-obscene salary and a 35 hours week with maternity pay and an overseas vacation several times a year. They deserve that new luxury car and used isn’t quite good enough. (more…)

Great Expectations

Last week I wrote some satire entitled The Emperor’s New Clothes stealing the title from Hans Christian Anderson’s story. That story of course had a moral, Emperors, Kings, Queens, Presidents and politicians will believe anything they are told; if it suits them to do so.

This week I steal my title from a classic by Charles Dickens and one of my favourite books. It was about a young boy; Pip, who steals food to help a convict and later inherits his wealth; giving him Great Expectations. The story is quite complex and has many morals; there are two young ladies Biddy who is poor and ordinary and who treats Pip well helping him with his education. Then there is Estelle, who lives at the big house and treats him badly, but she is beautiful and rich; he of course falls for Estelle. (more…)
