The bear necessities...

A traditional Shropshire toy company will have a better chance to showcase its award winning products after winning the latest high-tech Apple iPad Mini in a competition on Facebook.

Merrythought of Ironbridge is famous for its classic teddy bears and is the only manufacturer of soft toys remaining in the country. Company directors regularly travel all over the world to exhibitions, shows and trade fairs.

The iPad Mini is the latest specification ‘must have’ gadget and was offered as a prize by leading creative agency Source Design of Shrewsbury, as part of the expansion of its social media services to clients.

Sally Tringham, managing director of Source Design said: “There is an ever increasing use of social media as a marketing tool in business and we are noticing an increased demand for setting up, developing and managing social media accounts such as, Twitter Facebook and Pinterest. So we thought this would be a fun and very practical prize to help highlight our services.”

Joint managing director of Merrythought, Hannah Holmes added: “When travelling the world, this new tablet will be ideal as a visual display to show customers our product range - rather than carrying a selection of teddy bears around with us, although we may still take the odd one, just for company.”

Merrythought can be contacted on 01952 433116.

Simple, Effective, Upton Magna Business Park

An attractive, photography-driven website was created to make the most of potential business for Upton Magna Business Park, a new venture undertaken by long-standing Source client Balfours Chartered Surveyors.

The site's elegant layout and simple navigation mean that visitors don't have to search too long for what they're looking for; information is displayed clearly and concisely. Integrated floorplans and Google maps make the site the one stop potential customers need to get in touch with Balfours.

This is an effective example of a simple website that went from design concept to live in a little under two weeks.

If you think your business, product or service would benefit from a similar online presence, get in touch - we're happy to meet with you and discuss your needs and budget at no cost.
