Good morning everyone. It really is a good morning too! This Friday is blessed to be sandwiched between National Burger Day (if you missed it yesterday, treat yourself today) and a Bank Holiday weekend. Lovely stuff.


If you’re at a loose end this weekend, you could do worse than checking the London Street Photography Festival out. It’ll definitely get the creative juices flowing!

Love award winning films but don’t have time to watch any? Fear not, Giphy has you covered by launching the first ever film festival for works no longer than 18 seconds.

Of course, if you don’t have time to watch a film, you definitely don’t have time to read a classic novel (at least, that’s what you tell yourself. We understand). Fortunately the New York Public Library’s got your back by turning classic novels into Instagram stories.

Speaking of doing stuff ‘for the gram’, this trend identified by Barclays is an interesting, if somewhat damning, insight into customer purchasing behaviour.

If you find all that cynical fakery is getting you hot under the collar, we suggest that you take 90, an awesome campaign in its conception and a great cause to boot.

Finally, this petal-paint brings a whole new meaning to flower power. Living proof that a great creative idea can spring up in any category, at any time!
