by Eleanor

I was in New York last week and it was awesome, obviously, but this is a blog about communications, so I only want to share with you some really crazy advertising I saw. No, it wasn't Times Square where I pity anyone who may arrive not previously knowing of an…

by Kristen

Well it would seem that whilst Australia may be behind the curve on some issues, cigarette advertising is not one of them. The high-court back home has upheld a ruling that is going to make all cigarette packaging blank… that’s right, no logos, no enticing colours, just images of the…

Putting Footy in your Facestalk
