It’s quite something when you mention tweed hoodies not knowing they really exist. And then you’re followed by them. @maude_fox Fascinating!— pat.galea (@4DC5) May 17, 2013
Tweed with a twist, Maude & Fox is all about making urban country chic come to life through combining traditional materials and great design to make contemporary clothes that can be worn by lad or laird alike.
Boombox tweets on behalf of this Dorset based company and love the reaction their tweed products create, such as the tweet above.
We’re outside Kennington Park Tube Station with the guys from Hiplock, High 5 and Evans Cycles. Stop by, say hello and try our Muc-Off chain lubes!
The team from Muc-Off helped ensure a smooth commute for London cyclists yesterday.
Broadcast Video Europe is the UK’s essential broadcast and production technology event.
BVE is a popular broadcast show that took place in the capital last week. Exhibitors included Sony, Panansonic, JVC and Polecam. For 2013, the show moved its base from Earl’s Court to the London ExCeL centre for the first time.
Not surprisingly for a technology event, BVE was already active on social media channels including Twitter, Google+, Facebook, LinkedIn and YouTube. But whilst the show has great branding with its ‘play’ icon, this was not consistent across all channels.
Win a polar bear from black+blum
Design duo black+blum create products for the home and office, combining ruthless practicality with a mischievous and intellectually-satisfying design aesthetic. Their latest product is is a polar bear ice tray who can live in your freezer called brrrrr… Not only does it take the fuss out of making ice cubes, it also stops them picking up taste and odours of other items in your freezer. How cool is that?
To tie in with today’s International Polar Bear Day, a competition to win a brrrrr… was announced via the black+blum Facebook page.
Boombox created a bespoke Facebook competition page tab that included an online form for entrants to add their name, email address and an option to sign up for black+blum newsletters.
The competition is free to enter, just visit the black+blum Facebook page using a computer (not a mobile or tablet) and click on the ‘Win a polar bear!’ tab under their cover image. The closing date is the 8th March. After which time we’ll send all the entrants names onto black+blum so they can choose a winner.
The ice tray is so new that it’s not even on the black+blum website yet (they’re expecting in the next month) but you can see their current product line-up here.
Muc-Off C3 ceramic lube
If you’re a keen cyclist or into muddy sports then you’ll know that Muc-Off are the team behind the famous pink bike cleaner. They’re constantly developing exciting new product ranges, which keep bikes, cars, motorcycles and even caravans clean and sparkling.
Their latest bicycle product is so trick, Boombox thought it need a Facebook page tab all of its own. Muc-Off’s C3 ceramic chain lube is the first of its kind with boron nitride compounds, fluoropolymers and integral UV tracer dyes. By using the special torch that comes with each bottle you can see clearly where the lube has been applied ensuring your bike chain is properly protected, maximising life and minimising pedalling effort.
Check it out in the video below. You can also visit the C3 ‘Seeing is believing’ page tab we built and are securely hosting here (please use a Mac or PC to view).
