Yellow (Jersey) Fever

Tour de France fever has certainly gripped the studio over the last few weeks, even to the extent that MJ and myself had to leave the country. We had a thoroughly enjoyable trip to Boulogne to watch the Tour pass through, catching an inspirational glimpse of the riders on their epic journey.

Hopefully for the very first time in its 99 year history, it will be an Englishman on the top step of the podium.

Allez Wiggo! 

Unrivalled Creativity

Ideas Factory and Douglas & Gordon have celebrated their 12-year relationship with Unrivalled Creativity, a compendium of the work these two companies have created.

We have created a short video of the book as we are so proud of it. Take a look!


Table Football Tournament

So Friday saw the introduction of the table football tournament in the Ideas Factory studio. Harriet, our capable intern, drew up the fixtures board for us – painstakingly umming and ahhing over whether her lines were straight enough. Games commenced in five rounds so everyone got a turn to play everyone.

I won no games (I’m blaming the fact that I’m new! I obviously haven’t had enough practice…), but as the tournament went on it was a clear contest between Harriet, MJ and Jonathan for the winning title, and between Guy and David for fourth place. After some tense playing MJ managed to win the deciding match against Harriet by two goals and therefore got Hugo, the highland cow trophy.

That's magic...

Following on from the double win at the Cream Awards, our Douglas & Gordon Extraordinary People campaign has been shortlisted by the Property Marketing
Awards 2012.

Each year the prestigious Pamada awards recognises and salutes the very best in property advertising and marketing so it is a great privilege to have the Extraordinary People campaign held in such high regard. 

The campaign focuses on the wonderful talents and diverse backgrounds of the Douglas & Gordon team, highlighting what makes them outstanding agents.
