Re: Terrorism

I think that the idea of a group of people being responsible should be de-emphasised - the emphasis should be placed on the disrupted mental state of a person that would cause them to kill themselves and others in such a way.

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

I hope HSBC also update the First Direct debit card, which (despite their very simple branding) is a mess: Agreed! If the mother ship has decided to suppress account details on cards (as the HSBC designs suggest), then one might expect First Direct to follow suit, which would surely prompt some sor...

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

Meanwhile, whilst the Argos catalogue and the Yellow Pages seem to increasingly get smaller until they will disappear into thin air or something, the NEXT Directory continues to be printed in a big hardback book with supplementary softback catalogues, for free. Go figure. I thought NEXT Directories...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Another "not exactly high street" contribution... but aligning with the current trend for flat graphics in single tints of single colours. IHG (the hotel group) goes from: https://up.metropol247.co.uk/032017/1490181680_203272820.png to (with apologies for poor quality): https://up.metropol247.co.uk/...
