  1. Cruddy bell!! I couldn't believe it.

    Vernon gets the CIPD magazine and with the current one is a review of recruitment marketing. It's
    stuffed dull of adverts and one really stood out to both Vernon and I. It's for an advertising
    agency called Ward Diamond Advertising and the ad is full-page, glossy, picture of a slightly muddy
    cyclist, face view, with partial of bike frame in front (looks like a road frame). The theme of the
    ad is to promote the agency and its strap line is "feel the benefits" and goes on to say how the WD
    team cycle 325 miles to & from work every week andf how they feel the benefits. Cor! A really
    positive image of cycling! The only very minor criticism (and it's me being very picky, I admit) I
    have is the face of the cyclist is mud-splattered. Cycling doesn't mean always arriving
    mud-splatted. But then, if this aprticular agency is located off-road, it may well do ;-)

    Cheers, helen s

    Nevertheless, the way the weather's been round these 'ere parts of late, they'd have to take their
    own water to whip up a bit of mud....if they could break the concrete like mud down enough to mix it
    up....... Not that I'm complaining of course ;-) Good to hear that it's starting to be used in the
    marketing world though. Shouldn't be long before it's profitable to start up a little independant
    adult training company. Dave.

    I remember years ago, i.e. before 1990, I saw an advert for Xerox photocopiers and their after sales
    service, it showed a roadie receiving adjustment on the move from a mechanic leaning our of his car.
    The strap line was something to do with keeping your business moving. I noticed a phase about five
    years ago of bikes appearing in adverts for all sorts of things.

    Sounds like something that ought to be a guest publication on HIGNFY...
