Following the success of this idea at Volante Ltd I got hold of some laminate from the factory and created a notice board as soon as I arrived. This would be a changing display of drawings, newspaper cuttings, ideas. In addition I set up a page on the NBS intranet site and updated people with drawings, paintings and news of my activities in the branch offices and in the schools.
Nowadays this would be called a blog and be alot easier to manage. It would also include video footage with a fly on the wall camera in the studio. The blog would be extended to the world wide web somehow and the publicity would be further grown with Twitter and You-Tube. Nor sure how much actual drawing and painting would get done. Not that the company would be bothered so long as it was getting its positive public profile built.0
