Ever thought about your Social Media footprint?

January 8th, 2010

The idea of a Social Media Footprint came to me this week after contemplating this gift of life that we are bestowed. As I swiftly approach my 40th birthday, I am actually trying to be philosophical, as we are only here but a fraction of time, so the question on my mind is “what do we actually leave behind” as individuals, a trace of “who we were” or “what we achieved”?

Our predecessors, people such as Charles Dickens, Mark Twain, Jules Verne have left us enchanting books, filling our heads with fantastic images. Da Vinci, Picasso and Rembrandt left us great works of art which bring us joy hundreds of years after their deaths. The great compositions of Beethoven, Mozart and Bach to name but a few have given us magnificent classical pieces of music. Inventors like Karl Benz who is generally acknowledged as the inventor of the modern automobile, the light bulb by Thomas Edison and Alexander Graham Bell and his telephone. The first pioneers of flight, Icarus and the Wright brothers, all these people have given us things to remember and things to improve our lifetime… so what can we, the “everyday” folk of the world do to make us remembered in the future?

Not all of us are lucky enough to realise childhood dreams. Many boys hope to become a professional footballer, an astronaut, to conquer Everest or to follow in the footsteps of musical legends, like the Beatles songwriting duo of John Lennon and Paul McCartney or perhaps to become Movie stars such as Marilyn Monroe, James Dean or modern greats like Clint Eastwood, John Wayne and Elizabeth Taylor.

So how can we leave a little bit of history or a footprint of ourselves behind, something that actually makes our everyday lives seem a little more worthwhile and creative?

Many of my older relatives have started work on their family trees to see where their past lies. This seems to keep them contented and of course it is pretty amazing if you can find out that you are a direct descendant of someone rather unique. Others turn to religion and Christ to make their final days more worthwhile. I believe that all of us are rather special and if you were to analyze each of our lives we may be of interest to future civilisations even if we haven’t invented the Microchip, the world wide web, electronic mail or Microsoft.

The future for us is our Social Media Footprint. I truly believe that in many many years to come, when people are surfing the net in their brain with built in microprocessors in the ear so they can call their friends from anywhere… they will look back to their relative’s footprints, their blogs, their online photos and social media posts to understand from where they have descended! Probably a much more personal probe into someone’s life than ever available before!

My son for instance will be able to read how his Mother and Father felt when he was born, see scans of him inside his mothers womb and read how he grew up, watching video clips and listening to sound clips of those first important years. Learning how he developed and matured. Looking at and remembering all the countries he visited in his early years. He may then show his son and his son’s son and so on, whilst perhaps even continuing adding to that particular content long into the future!

How strange and incredible to know that our writing, anecdotes and rants may make people laugh or cry long after we and our families have passed on… start your blog today!!

Events in and around Slovakia and a quality service provided by Mystral.sk

December 28th, 2009

December was a pretty busy month for creative images as we were responsible for a few events in Austria and one in Slovakia, this year we worked in cooperation with a new company called the Mystral agency they are a professional team of people who have a vast resource of responsible and high-quality employees.

Mystral provide professional hostesses, for all types of events. They also can help out with photo models even cleaning ladies and babysitters who will take care of your children mainly in the region of Bratislava; however, they are able to provide our services anywhere within the Slovak Republic. This is very helpful to us as usually finding models for a photo shoot is quite a thankless task.

The Mystral agency offer services connected with promotion events aimed directly at target customers and can also organize a variety of cultural and social events according to a clients needs. Every employee of the agency has a thorough interview. The Hostesses are interviewed in a foreign language and have to pass through model situations. Their Babysitters have to pass psychological tests – this is to assure that your child is in the best hands. They also focus on the quality of work performed by their cleaning ladies – professionals with several years of work experience or helpful students who do their job well and with pleasure.

We would definitely work with the Mystral agency in the future and can highly recommend them.

ISPO 2010, Flexfit exhibition stand, design and build in progress.

November 19th, 2009

The build for this season’s Flexfit promotional stand at the Winter ISPO 2010 in Munich, Germany is well under way. All drawings have been approved and the build is coming along very well.

Here are some computer generated illustrations of how the stand will look and the basic design/ layout.

[nggallery id=5]

As you can see from the pictures below our construction team have already got most of the basic parts together. We build the entire stand first in our warehouse. We will then make all adjustments and finalize all items before dismantling, packing up, transporting and building up the stand in Munich next February 2010.

What’s Your Free Soup To Go Strategy?

November 18th, 2009

I really liked what John Jantsch wrote here, it makes sense and as I have read it so many times it made sense to post it here so you can read it too. Simple and spot on…

I write about exceeding expectations in business quite often. I happen to think it’s one of the secrets to success in business and life.

The thing is, it’s not really that hard sometimes because people have grown to expect so little. Just giving a little something extra, after the deal has been agreed to, can go a long way towards creating good will and word of mouth.

For example, my wife and I tried out this new restaurant in town – . Meal was great, service very cheery, atmosphere appropriate, price in line. All of these things added up to a nice experience that had us agreeing to come back some time. But, when our server brought the check she also brought a pint of soup in a go container and told us to let them know what we thought of it.

Now I’m not just going back, I’m sitting here at my computer telling your about Cafe Augusta. As I said, that soup didn’t set them back much, but I had found memories of my visit the next day over a bowl of warmed up soup.

So, what your soup to go strategy? Can you add something to the box, repair something for no charge, provide a free analysis of other systems, or give free stuff from your strategic partners?

The New Technology Centre – Ultra Light System

September 25th, 2009

Heidelberger Druckmaschinen - (The famous printing company in Heidelberg, Germany.)

Since Heidelberg developed the NTC, the New Technology Centre at the main plant in Heidelberg, Germany. Understanding of new technology and the additional peripherals that have been added to the print presses has grown enormously. This is due in main to the incorporation of a print press from the Speedmaster range. This print press has been “cut away” to show the internal workings of the print press. Staff have been able to show potential customers all the new features of the print presses and explain the functionality with a lot more ease than trying to explain with new technology with photographs or plans.

This original Speedmaster “cut away” from the NTC in Heidelberg was also used at last years Drupa exhibition in Dussledorf, Germany. It proved to be a great success. The Speedmaster “cut away” permanently resides in Heidelberg and as you can imagine with such a large machine, it cannot easily be moved around the Europe due to size and cost restraints. To solve this problem and create something as complete as the life size “cut away” creative images together with Heidelberg Druckmaschinen created the NTC Ultra light system. This is a 1:1 printed system that stands up to 2 metres 70 centimetres in height. It is a fabric print that is stretched over 11 individual frames and spans a length of over 13 metres.

This Ultra Light System (ULS) as the name suggests can be used all over the world at exhibitions to illustrate and help the explanation of information and technology to customers by the staff at the Heidelberg exhibitions and conferences. The ULS is today at the time of writing in Jyväskylä, Finnland at the Finngraf 2009 trade show.

[nggallery id=2]

Firstly a very complex and detailed drawing needed to be created here at creative images. We decided to make our illustration a 3-dimensional one. We knew that later we may need to have many different views of the machine and perhaps even create working videos of which could be made at a later date.

During completion of the illustration, the frame had to be constructed, especially built from a lightweight aluminium structure. Once the panels were constructed the fabric prints (11 of them) could be stretched over each panel. Each panel butts up against the next and is then screwed into place. Once all frames are in position the fabric panels can be hung in place.  (see pictures above)
