…following the last post it’s not all bad news for designers these days. Back in the old days you’d spend all day working on an illustration concept only for it to be rejected out of hand, never a good thing. All hail, then, our friends at istockphoto and shutterstock - take a screenshot, get outline approval, then work up and customise for the required purpose. Happy days.Friday 25th January, 2013
For the past few years we’ve printed an offer voucher based on old French bank notes, a different one each year, as a ‘bounceback’ offer for Brasserie Blanc customers to tempt them back in over January. Alas, no more. It’s all online these days - still, a nice design but I wonder how many other old favorites will go digital this coming year?Sunday 30th December, 2012
Like most people we love Christmas here but, if you work in the restaurant business this means hard work, and for us the hard work starts in July when we get the commissions for their Christmas campaigns. So, on the hottest day of the year we rediscovered this beautiful twilight winter image taken on location in Norway, and this became the basis for this year’s White Brasserie and Brasserie Blanc festive menus and promotion.Thursday 22nd November, 2012
latest update from our cycling friends
Busy times ahead for Milltag, after an enjoyable research trip out to Slovakia to meet with our production team in December (mmm..beer), it’s down to work creating the new range for 2013. With our first export order to Japan in the bag, interest from a pan-European distributor and a deal in the offing with a large online cycle store things are looking rosy for our a little baby project. Allez, Allez, Allez.
