The London Blogger Interviews #32: Ghost Signs

Sam of Ghost Signs is this week’s blogger, whose fascination with the legacy of painted wall advertising has led him to document them as they come and go in London’s ever-changing environment. The blog has been mentioned as a favourite by many of our previous interviewees so we thought it was high time we found […]

The London Blogger Interviews #31: The London Dossier

This week’s blogger is Jean-Paul Séculaire who has been documenting London’s nightlife, cafes, record shops, bars and more since 2001, including a monthly calendar of club nights.

Londonist: The London Blogger Interviews #6: Brockley Central

This week’s interview is with Lovely Nick from Brockley Central who was life-savingly quick in his responses in my post-Twestival week! i think this is a really cool blog, in the way it has developed such a strong local community – and 4000 views a week gives it some real power!

We first spotted this fruity obsession back in June, and we’re pleased to see it graduate to an exhibition of true London randomness, London Banana: A show of 1000 portraits of banana skins discarded in London’s urban environment.

Digital Dining @ Inamo on Wardour Street

I was lucky enough to be taken to an uber geeky restaurant last week, especially chosen for the attendees because of it’s geek-credentials! Inamo on Wardour St, Soho has gorgeous Asian fusion food and interactive touchscreen tables, meaning you can flick through the menu, view images, order, and then play games and change the table design […]

Air New Zealand’s abseiling pilot

We’ve been working with Air New Zealand this month to amplify a cool stunt in which one of their 747 pilots abseiled down a huge billboard in East London to paint on the missing ad slogan. A time-lapse video – see below – of the activity made it onto sites I love like AdRants, TrendHunter […]

Delicate Mayhem London cityscapes

These are cool prints from Delicate Mayhem who are at the Backyard Market on Sundays. They do great London cityscapes, which if you look closely feature everything from Banksy’s to plugged in Bearskin guards, fried chicken shops and a glimpse at what’s really below the tube line – as well as normal Londoners getting on with […]

Twestival

Didn’t plan to do a Twestival post but then I saw this picture of Paul from Annie’s collection and couldn’t resist! Bless him! Fab event, saw lots of the same old social media blagger crowd and was also pleased to meet some new people in real life like @documentally, @jester, @jedhallam, @brothermical, @jamiec and probably lots of others… […]

The Girl Geek Dinners are a fantastic networking community for women working in a special interest area, often tech, but other areas are welcome and present. They were initiated by Sarah Blow after she attended […]
