Royal Bolton Hospital Children's enhancements

We have just finished installing a series of enhancements in the newly refurbished Children's and Young People's Unit at the Royal Bolton Hospital. We asked the patients what they would like to see in the enhancements and used these focus groups to determine the content of the illustrations. It was a lovely project to work on and we hope the unit has a really successful opening.

Firecatcher's Sunny Thinking about Ombudsman Services

Everything has been going a bit super round here, especially since we teamed up with the fantastic Sunny Thinking to liven up the Ombudsman Services Annual Reports with some heroes. Energy Girl, Communications Man and Property Man will help you fight all those service providers who rip you off, give poor customer service or bill you too much. We were lucky enough to be invited to the report launch in Westminster, though our arrival was somewhat overshadowed by a certain Mr Murdoch and Ms Black...

Our illustrations covered three areas, property, communications and energy providers, and looked rather lovely in print, if we do say so ourselves. Hats off to Sunny Thinking for a great creative solution and for being such jolly good chaps! Now, to the bat cave..!
