Simplicicity

Waiting by the car

Wim was talking about advertising.

He said that the main thing is to keep it simple. If you sell sauce, tell them it’s tasty. If you sell cars, tell them they’re racy.

If you sell diamonds, tell them they’re shiny. Anything more complicated and people get headaches.

I think he’d like our shop sign. http://wherearethejoneses.com/2007/06/17/day3b/

61: Lost in the Colosseum

Posted by Jonti Bloom on August 7, 2007

Dawn thinks she’s being followed. I said “Hello, what do you think I’ve been doing here all this time”.

Not funny apparently.

Posted by Jonti Bloom on August 2, 2007

Always a sensitive film-maker and seeker of truth, I feel that I may be touching sensitive areas. And paying for quite a lot.

20: The Man in the Windmill

Posted by The Joneses on June 28, 2007

I’m off with the guys to find The Man in the Windmill.

Marvellous. Who’s next? The Old Lady who lived in a shoe?
Puss in Boots? The Wind in the flippin’ Willows?

Cars are just a tool

Posted by Ian Jones on June 22, 2007

Donuts with Dutch Pop Soda

I never learned to drive. Is that a crime? Cars are just a tool. I prefer Dremels, pliers, snippers, clippers, files and paint brushes. With them I drive into a little world of craft-based adventure. With dice.
