The web is what you make of it

21 Dec

I love the concept behind the Google Chrome advert. It is fantastic and shows how one person made the most out of the internet…

Which leads me onto my own personal experiment.

I would LOVE to work at Hootsuite, and as a result, I have created a blog dedicated to this cause! I am eager to see how social media will help me in my quest in landing a job at this creative company!

The blog is in its early stages, but have a little peek, share it if you like and give me some feedback on it! I’d love to hear what you guys think about it!

The blog can be found here:

Fingers crossed the Owls Hootsuite will catch a glimpse of this!


Beer Mat Characters

5 Dec

Yes, this post has been a long time in coming, but I was going through my stickies on my mac and re discovered my list of these beauties!

@InkyGoodness posted these on their twitter. From what I can tell, they held a beer mat character competition and a number of Illustrators have designed them. My personal favourite is the happy jellyfish one! They’re all linked to the original Instagram posts with the individual illustrators accredited to.

The Social City

30 Nov

Towards the end of October 2012, Hurricane Sandy devastated the east coast of the United States. With social media channels packed with images of the storm approaching and the after effects. Reports after the hurricane showed that social media assisted in spreading the news to New Yorkers, whilst using “light weight apps” such as Twitter.

Hootsuite hosted a great webinar with Rachel Haot, who is the Chief Digital Officer for NY Government. Rachel detailed the social media plan for NY and explained how New Yorker’s can donate their twitter handle during an emergency to spread news faster in desperate situations.

I have only brushed the surface of the content, so have a little look at the Social City webinar and let me know what you think.
