It really doesn’t feel like 2 weeks ago that the whole of the design team were at OFFSET2013 for 24 solid hours of inspiration, dancing and a few drinks. It was great to see so many faces for the Northern Ireland creative industry make the journey down to soak up what was on offer and share ideas.

Since its introduction in 2011 a lot of fuss has been made about Google+, Google’s latest attempt to break in to social media. Google has been trying hard to make people use it, and is migrating Gmail and YouTube accounts to Google+ accounts. Google has also merged Local with Google+, so that every business that had a Local business page in Google Maps will have seen that change to a Google+ business page.
On top of all this, there’s a lot of speculative writing and commenting out there from technologists and digital marketers about the uses and advantages of Google+. But much of this writing is based on theoretical uses of Google+, with few concrete and actionable insights. Many who have tried using Google+ say it’s as quiet as a graveyard and has almost no user interaction, but others claim it’s a vibrant social media platform with millions of active users.

On Thursday 14th March, Queen’s University Belfast launched the new Institute for Global Food Security at an event at Riddel Hall, attended by guest speaker Philip Clarke, CEO of Tesco.
We were delighted to design the brochures for the new Institute, which included photography of Professor Chris Elliott, Director of the new Institute, surrounded by grain and feed, and Grainne McGovern, a former student at Queen’s, who was a great sport agreeing to be photographed in a field of cows.

Yesterday, in a Pierce first, the design team were all silent! The reason for this momentous occasion was that all their mouths were full of delicious donuts that were hand delivered by our hosting provider Big Wet Fish.
