Benched

Here is my latest upload to my flickr profile.

I was lucky enough to spend a long weekend in Orlando with the girlfriend and had a brilliant time. Particularly liked this capture as it was taken in the middle of Universal Studios. Amongst all the hustle and bustle, and floods of people, there sat this quiet, interrupted space.

Firing Up the Blog Machine Again

As any of you regular visitors will have seen, my updates have not been nearly as regular as your visits. This was due to a slight change in how I’ve been earning a living for the last year, but as new and exciting things are in the not too distant future, I now plan to revive and renew this blog as both a personal, and professional site.

A new look has also arrived courtesy of a great new wordpress theme created by Matthew Buchanan

I hope that the content will keep you hooked and eagerly anticipating the next instalment.

In the meantime, heres a brief snapshot of what has been occupying both my mind and my time just lately.

A year goes by too fast.

Well, there is the best part of another year behind us, and ‘oh nine’ will definitely be one we will remember for many years. There are very, very few people that have not been affected in the downturns in the worlds economy this year, with a large casualty being the yachting industry. But just as it has before in this cyclical business, it would appear that the tide is on the turn and there is some good activity in the market. News of a 140m new build contract last week gave a lift to all concerned I’m sure!

I now make my trip back to the UK for the holidays, and will return in the new year.

I wish you all a very merry christmas, and happy and prosperous new year.

New Lone Star Yacht Sales Website

I wanted to share with you something I have been working on for the team at Lone Star Yacht Sales. The had identified their need to update their online presence with a new site. The brief was simple in the respect that they wanted a site that was clean, easy to navigate, and did not overload the viewer with hoards of information.

The site also now has a new address, with a shortened url than previously used www.lsyachts.com

The site gives visitors the ability to search for pre owned vessels worldwide, search for featured listings of LSYS vessels, view photo galleries of their hosted events, and various boat shows worldwide, the site also features some amazing video from Azimut & Lazzara. The brands represented by LSYS, Azimut, Bertram & Lazzara, all have dedicated pages.

The site will still have a few additions to come in the next few weeks, including details of the LSYS charter marketing division.

Please take a minute to visit the site www.lsyachts.com and I would welcome any comments you have.

Im not flattered…or am I?

Rich Lazzara once wrote what was a very interesting blog post to me, you can read it here http://www.richlazzara.com/2008/12/13/boats-blogsuncle-brad-and-im-not-flattered/ I find myself in a similar situation, and I’m not flattered either…or am I?

I was recently asked to come up with a design/idea for a web banner to be used on a very prominent yacthing website. After giving a lot of time to thinking about what I actually wanted the banner to do, and not wanting to look and read like ‘every other’ banner out there, I came up with a design that worked perfectly. The banner was launched, and worked REALLY well, then the inevitable happened. Not only did new banners start popping up, but using the exact same wording, or very similar takes on it.

The Wonders of Technology

So I’m in the office on a Saturday, and thought I would share some weekend fun with you all. Found this earlier on youtube and had to post it. I know there has been some skepticism as to if this is real or not, but either way, from my point of view, its either and amazing feat of technology or even a very clever marketing tool!
