I was having a gander at my usual footy websites in my lunch break this week and stumbled across a fascinating article about a football pitch in Brazil that has floodlights powered by the activity of players. Admittedly it was Pelé’s face in a thumbnail that caught my eye, but once I’d opened up the webpage I was hooked – as football and tech stuff is a heady mix. For me anyway.
There has been abundance of music magazines over the last decade. Don’t get me wrong, there’s been some great ones which have been really informative and introduced me to some great things, but I also feel that we have had an abundance of publications boarding on the ‘Uber cool’ fashion/music variety which often lose sight of the music.
While half the nation has packed itself off to the beaches of Europe the D4 studio works on. Next month we’re scheduled to launch projects in Germany, France and the USA, all on behalf of companies based in the Sheffield City Region. You may think a summer spent grafting is a disaster, but for us it feels brilliant. To understand why we have to go back, way back. To 1964.
