Another week in lockdown complete… but this week brought the exciting news that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expecting a second baby. We might be working remotely from our Windsor office, but it’s always great to get good news from the (ex) royals. Harry will forever be the Prince of our hearts! http://bit.ly/3bh8b5R

#DeleteFacebook has been trending on Twitter following a decision from Facebook to block Australian users and publishers from sharing news links in response to a new bill. Some argue that Australia is a ‘test’ to see how democracies will react to having a news ban. If this carries on, we don’t imagine it will bode well for the social platform – we’ll be keeping our eye on this! http://bit.ly/3dp8xK9

New year, new emojis (finally)! Apple has announced 217 new emojis to enjoy in its next software update in response to the current pandemic as well as a more gender-diverse emoji selection. The Covid-19 inspired emojis include an upgraded syringe and a face that looks suspiciously like a cough but could also be a sigh. What’s your take? http://bit.ly/2ZqakGI

Last week we mentioned the new invite-only social platform, Clubhouse, and it seems Facebook now wants to join the party. It is reportedly developing its own Clubhouse clone to keep users on the platform and snuff out the competition. Will this spell the end for Clubhouse? http://bit.ly/37rZIeN

Ad Campaign

On Thursday night, commercial TV channels across the UK, such as ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5, united to screen an important Covid-19 vaccine message. The video featured celebrities busting myths about the vaccine to urge people from ethnic minority communities to get vaccinated. Did you catch the ad at 21:56 last night? http://bbc.in/3u9ZL8J

Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best. An ad concept for Kit-Kat designed by Sam Henning for the One Minute Briefs Twitter account has amassed tens of thousands of likes thanks to its topical portrayal of current working life. Whilst Kit-Kat can’t claim the genius design for themselves, the ad has certainly attracted their attention. http://bit.ly/3k8ILve

Tip Of The Week

Good copy is all about the words, right? Not necessarily! To draw readers in, the copy must be visually appealing in the first place. Think about how off-putting a large block of text is. Instead, opt for a clear font, short paragraphs, bullet points and subheadings to break up the text and make it easier to digest.
