A good degree of success: Sheffield Hallam University win

Our local, the excellent Milestone Restaurant and Bar, in the Kelham Island conservation area, has been helping us celebrate our latest Sheffield Hallam University win. So pleased were we with our latest account win that we made several visits to take advantage of its gastronomic delights (incidentally, Nic, Nug and Lenny can particularly recommend their Rosemary Infused Lamb Burger with rough cut chips and coleslaw).
The SHU win involved a 2am finish the morning before the pitch for two of the Iris design team, so there was also considerable relief that all the hard work had paid off.  The pitch was for the university’s Countdown Campaign, a phased 11-month campaign of communications to prospective students designed to help them hit the ground running when they arrive next August. We’ll stick some examples of the work as soon as it’s underway and approved by SHU. Watch this space.

Iris gets an A+ for science homework

Two atoms are walking down the street

One atom says to the other, “Hey! I think I lost an electron!”

The other says, “Are you sure??”

“Yes, I’m positive!”

Yes, it’s official. We’re geeks. We just got an A+ for our latest Go Science creative work. We were recently commissioned by The Government Office for Science to create a set of posters to promote the vital role that science plays in our everyday lives, and to emphasise the importance of government decision-making being underpinned by robust scientific evidence and long-term thinking. A very pleased client says the posters are now up and “are coming in for some compliments already”.

And finally, what’s the most important lesson to learn in chemistry?

Never lick the spoon.
