Guinness releases limited-edition cans illustrated with original John Gilroy artwork

16th October 2017 – Guinness is delighted to launch a series of collectible John Gilroy cans in the UK, in celebration of the 120th anniversary of the British artist’s birth. The charming limited-edition cans, which include some of Gilroy’s most iconic designs – the flying toucan and lobster – will be available nationwide from 1st November.

Gilroy, the artist behind Guinness’ eye-catching campaigns spanning across four decades (1930-60s), is renowned for his vibrant and humorous designs, which not only put Guinness on the map as an iconic brand advertiser but also revolutionised the global face of advertising as a whole. In keeping with the style of his earlier work, the new cans display his delightful artwork on top of a white background – untypical for the brand renowned as ‘the black stuff’!

Nin Taank, Guinness Brand Manager, said: “Gilroy’s iconic Guinness campaigns are recognised around the world and we are thrilled to be celebrating the 120th anniversary of his birth with the launch these limited-edition cans.”

“My Goodness, MY GUINNESS!” – one of the world’s longest running campaigns in history, features a hapless zoo keeper character – a caricature of Gilroy himself. Gilroy’s toucan design, which features on one of the cans, has long been associated with Guinness, appearing in posters, press adverts and promotional materials for the brand since 1935. The other limited-edition can features Gilroy’s lobster illustration. From the early 1930s Guinness and food was a popular advertising theme with the association of lobster and Guinness stretching back to the early 1900s – the dry roasted, slightly bitter taste of Guinness is said to be the perfect seafood pairing.

Jim Gilroy, Gilroy Estate, explains: “Not only was John Gilroy a gifted artist, he was an advertising revolutionary and ahead of his time. We are very proud that his work is being commemorated in this way – how fitting that his toucan and lobster designs should now feature on the Guinness can itself.”

The cans will be available in multi-pack formats across all major retailers in the UK from 1st November.

Pharos Social.

With the rise in cyberbullying to teen suicides, as well as, deadly online peer-driven challenges, such as, ‘the blue whale challenge’, just in time for back to school season – I’d like to put on your radar an app and web-based platform for parents to non-intrusively monitor their children’s social media activity called Pharos Social.

What Is Pharos Social?

The Pharos Social team has built a proprietary technology to collect, analyze and detect questionable social media content, both incoming and outgoing, that may be harmful to your child. We combine this technology with a unique methodology for how to provide this tool to both parents and their children without breaking trust between the two.


Pharos Social includes various features, including, Health Score, an algorithmic score based on the health and strength of ones connected social media accounts. It’s like a credit score, but for social media.

Other features include:
Flagger – A system that reviews social media content automatically so you don’t have to invade your children’s privacy to keep them safe..
Notifier / Alerts – Receive alerts by SMS (text) or email whenever we find potentially problematic content.
Top posts – We show you your child’s most popular recent posts so you can help them understand the elements of a healthy social media presence.
Biggest Fan – See the friends who interact the most with your children on social media.
Most Flagged Friend / Follower – See which of your child’s friends are sharing offensive content most often.

Perfect For College Students

This app is also very ideal for college students, who wish to clean up their presence before applying to schools – since social media screening is now a major part of the college enrollment process for prospective students! How many stories have we heard about a college candidate rejected because of a racy image or tweet!

Founder – from athletes to adolescents

The app was created by online safety expert, dad, and tech entrepreneur, Ben Graves, who recently made the shift from making apps for athletes to adolescents.


Pharos Social is a SAAS (software as a service) company.
$9/mo for up to two children
$12/mo for up to six children

Actively playing and participating in a sport can be highly beneficial to an individual’s physical wellbeing and mental health.

Despite this, an estimated 8.3 million men and 11.8 million women across the UK are categorised as ‘insufficiently active’.

Interested in physical activity, analysed information from the London Datastore to reveal what percentage of the population (adults 16+) in each of London’s 33 boroughs do not play/participate in any sports.

The research fascinatingly revealed:

3,508,300 million Londoners shockingly do not undertake any sporting activities
Barking and Dagenham is London’s least active borough with 67% of the local population not participating in any sports
Camden is seemingly London’s most active borough with only 35.7% of its residents not participating in any sports
32% of Londoners don’t play sports because they are too “pre-occupied/busy with work”

Best wishes,



10 years ago a meat revolution was carved out and the neighbourhood butcher was reborn. Parson’s Nose was amongst the first to raise this flag, and this year it celebrates its 10th anniversary of fine fillets and carnivorous cuts. Sister and brother team, Serena and Ed, have captured their childhood memories of those greatly loved high street traders, and have poured them into their South West outposts. They have established Parson’s Nose as a butcher tinted with nostalgia and steeped in tradition, albeit one that is thoroughly prepared for the 21st century and current day needs.

The fortunate residents of Fulham, Putney and South Kensington can delight in the joys of wandering to a local butcher, and it is common for visitors to make the journey from further afield. Equally, in accommodating the customs of convenience, Parson’s Nose operates a “Click & Collect” scheme, whereby orders placed online will be ready to pick-up from the store. It is this marriage of professionalism and artisanal charm that has earned Parson’s Nose many a fan, and positioned the trader as an integral fulfiller of London’s great meat demand.

It has long been known that the butchery realm is a male dominated industry, and Serena Hindhaugh is a much needed figure for aspiring female butchers. Her dedication to the craft is palpable, and her passion for sourcing the best produce is infectious. Her warm and personable demeanour runs thick through the veins of each Parson’s Nose. Serena has developed a series of valued and trusted relationships with suppliers across the country, and this ensures that every animal coming in and back out of their doors is of the highest quality. Similarly, customers of Parson’s Nose can rest assured that all meat delivered from farm to shop has been treated and upheld to only the best standards of animal welfare, and farmed without the use of intensive farming or additives.

The hillsides and glens of Scotland is the home of Parson’s Nose’s lambs and cattle. Third generation suppliers, MACDUFF, provides liberty to its animals, and a natural diet, consisting of grass for cows and kale and turnips for lambs. This translates into a supreme depth of flavour aided by a rich fat cover. Pork and poultry are treated with the same care and attention. Living full lives, Packington Free Range pigs and chickens roam English pastures in an idyllic setting. Truly worth the effort, Packington farmed animals have been celebrated for their full flavoured meat in a showering of awards. To help down and compliment the mouth-watering morsels of meat, a perusal of Parson’s Nose’s pantry is called for. Condiments, cheeses, seasonal vegetables, stocks, pies and a host of other artisanal products stack the shelves and more than warrant a sample.

10 years have steered Serena, and Parson’s Nose to become one of the top butchery establishments in London, and the team has pioneered and broken the ground for a herd of boutique butchers. Parson’s Nose cares about its produce; a care which is passed onto the customer in the guise of exceptional meat, and that community sentiment so synonymous with the traders of old.

gifts for him 2017

At Maxwell Scott we believe that Christmas is a time for presents that will last as long as the memories of the day. That’s why, though a British bag brand nestled in the Yorkshire countryside, we use luxury full-grain Tuscan leather and Italian craftsmanship for all of our designs. This durable material over time develops an individual patina, resulting in an entirely unique gift which becomes a map of your journeys and memories.
Browse our Christmas edit of briefcases, travel luggage and accessories for the special day, and many more to come. With our embossing and gift-wrap services, the gentleman in your life can receive a valuable, personalised gift he’ll love, delivered straight to your door. Finally for added Christmas joy, there will be a MSB Advent Calendar over the course of December which will be offering our customers a daily offer – be that free embossing, free delivery or others, including reductions.
A gift for him from Maxwell Scott is handcrafted from start to finish at our small Tuscan factory, and signed off with our signature, #MSBWithLove

Plinth publishes artists’ objects and merchandise in the belief that art and design are for everyone. In the run up to Christmas, we’ve compiled our most recent offerings along with some old favourites to wish you a very aesthetically pleasing season – on a budget.

Plinth x Wellcome Collection

They say an image speaks a thousand words; in the case of Plinth’s new range of products made in collaboration with Wellcome Collection, we could take that number down to three or four. ‘Keep clear of me’, for example, is expressed with a blue rectangle inside a yellow square – that is, according to the International Code of Signals, which we’ve made into a series of five pin badges (£20 the set, £5 each).

Tote bags (£12.50), mugs (£10) and t-shirts (£20) pull slogans ‘Courtesy is Infectious’, ‘Falls Are Not Fun’ and – perhaps most bafflingly – ‘Long Hair is Dangerous’ from 20th century workplace posters and into your home. Drawn from Wellcome Collection’s archives, the range is inspired by the many ways that humans have used the power of design in order to stay safe, healthy and happy.

Our notebook (£10), emblazoned with STOP on its red side and GO on its green, will suit even the most fickle design-admirer. Embrace an urge to pull the brakes just as eagerly as a flurry of productivity; we know things aren’t just black and white, but sometimes they are red and green.

Really Good-bye

As we prepare to bid farewell to David Shrigley’s Fourth Plinth commission in Trafalgar Square, there’s still time to keep the optimism alive. The last few units of our statuette (£25) are going fast but still available – just! – so make sure you snag one before they disappear for good, along with the real thing.

Otherwise, bag yourself a tote (£15), pick a pin (£7.50) or try a tee (£25); they’re all Really Good Buys (sorry).

Magnum Photos x Plinth

Lipstick on your teeth? You’ll never leave that particular mishap to chance again with Martin Parr’s makeup bag (£28). Breakfast on breakfast on breakfast with our eggs and bacon tray (£42.50) – and, for the literalist, a photographic PHOTOGRAPHIC pin badge, by Ferdinando Scianna, (£15).

Slingsby Gin announces local club partnership with Leeds Rugby and sponsorship of two top players, Ben West and Callum Irvine

Award-winning Yorkshire artisan gin brand, Slingsby, is proud to be partnering with Leeds Rugby, following on from their successful partnership with The British and Irish Lions during the 2017 tour of New Zealand.

The partnership deal will be with both of the Leeds Rugby teams, the professional rugby league club Leeds Rhinos and rugby union club Yorkshire Carnegie. The agreement sees Slingsby Gin sponsor Yorkshire Carnegie’s accomplished second row player Ben West and their Harrogate-born fly half Callum Irvine.

The partnership will also involve Slingsby Gin having ground boards and big screen sponsorship at the renowned Headingley Carnegie Stadium, where both teams play, with the corporate bars at the stadium stocking Slingsby’s acclaimed London Dry gin.

Having established itself in the rugby world with the sought-after British and Irish Lions deal and releasing a collector’s edition gin earlier this year, Slingsby is delighted to now be supporting its local teams and championing two exceptional players at important stages in their careers.

Brand owner, Spirit of Harrogate Limited, was co-founded in September 2015 by Marcus Black and Mike Carthy, who are both devoted rugby fans.

Co-Founder and Managing Director of Spirit of Harrogate, Mike Carthy, comments:

There is a deep-routed passion for rugby at Spirit of Harrogate and we couldn’t be happier to see our brand displayed proudly on the kits of Ben and Callum who are both superbly talented players and real pleasures to watch.

I have strong ties to Headingley Carnegie Stadium, having played and coached for a number of regional rugby clubs, so this partnership is a real honour. Even as we extend our listings across the country, we are a proud Yorkshire brand through and through and are excited to continue to make our mark in the region.

Slingsby Gin is made with only the finest natural and locally sourced botanicals, Harrogate aquifer water and pure single grain spirit. The key botanicals are locally-grown plants that are synonymous with the beautiful and restorative nature of Harrogate and half of Slingsby Gin’s 24 botanicals have been grown in Harrogate’s Rudding Park Hotel kitchen garden.
