I thought you might like to know that Beattie McGuinness Bungay have updated their website.
It's better (there are some really nice photographs) but it's not great.
I'm not stalking them or anything, but loads of people arrive at this site having searched for Beattie McGuinness Bungay on Google. So if that's the case you'll find the new website here: http://www.bmbagency.com/ Glad I could help.
And if you're reading this Trevor, you say that you'd like to "make the wheels turn a little bit faster" and then you call your agency BMB. Couldn't you have started with a mould breaking name? You managed it for FCUK, why couldn't you do it with your own agency?
Glad you liked the photos on the BMB site. You know that we've shot 2500 pics of Bs and Ms for them so far? One of our favourites is a B that's made out of a rotting ram's skull and backbone that we stumbled across on Dartmoor. Got a good one out of a moulded car's reflection/refraction headlamp recently (shot in Plymouth), and a nice multiple cactus M (when viewed upside-down) that we poked our eyes out on in Buckinghamshire!

Hello, Rebecca and Mike, are you guys the photographers?
Be great to see the ram's skull.

Sorry for any ambiguity. Yes, we personally photographed all that stuff for BMB (however, we're not 'Photographers' in the vocational category sense; our remit's broader than that). Just to say though, that on that job we only did the photography (and the idea), we didn't lay it out with text on their business cards (and all other applications) etc.
In a few weeks time you should be able to see a 3d logo variant through their office door. That one incorporates a piece of 19th century church panelling as the M. What's nice about it is that it's some panelling that was salvaged from a church that had been squatted, so it comes complete with far-out symbolic painting.
Unfortunately we can't really release the Ram's skull picture. That's BMB's property now. If you were REALLY keen you could either:
do lots of business card swapping with various folk from BMB (its probably on someone's card - each person has multiple versions)
put a request direct to Trevor Beattie. Out of the 2500 photos he should remember it.
However Ben, as you may point out, you're not THAT keen to see it!
Actually, it's also due to make a brief (and thumbnail-sized) appearance in the next issue of Super Super magazine. It's part of a pull-out poster piece by us that they're hoping to run with. http://www.myspace.com/thesupersuper is their rather manic (and highly appropriate for them) site.

Thanks for that R&M. I'm sure Trev reads this, so maybe he'll email it?

Hi Ben, Just curious, what makes you sure Trev reads this?

It was a joke.
