Ah, too much to do, too much to say, too little time. Fleetingly:
The Science Council are building (yet another?!) new science careers website, and they’re taking the branding/design thing commendably seriously. How seriously? Well, I’m glad you asked, thank you dear reader. They’re taking it seriously enough to have thrown up a stylish little examples-and-voting site; they’re asking for opinions.
To my eye there’s a direct correlation between the funkiness of the branding and the obscurity of the message, which is a bit of a shame, but you can’t fault them for trying. One of the ideas in particular I’d love to see rolled out as a sort of ‘kite mark’ for science engagement work – it’d be a neat little bit of branding.
Anyway, take a look, cast your vote.
More from me later. Promise. Mostly because if I don’t post lots this week, Patrick will get angsty in email again.
