  • Has the internet killed satire?

    Posted on November 25, 2016

    I love a good bit of satire. Whether it’s old episodes of Spitting Image, Aristophanes’ ‘The Frogs’ or a bit of the Daily Mash – nothing beats good satire. The problem is, does satire remain as satire when too many people believe it? For instance, the spoof news website BFN was originally set up with […]

  • So you think you don’t need a website?

    Posted on August 26, 2016

    Before I start this post, I must first apologise for the vitriol that is about to spew forth. John, our Content Team Leader, will have attempted to edit much of the hatred and anger from this but, if he’s caught all of it, the word count won’t be sufficient for a blog and you won’t […]

  • Happy 1st birthday to ‘covfefe’

    Posted on May 31, 2018

    Throughout history, many U.S. presidents have become credited with coining or popularising new words still in use today. Theodore Roosevelt was thought to have been among the first to have uttered the term ‘lunatic fringe’, while the verb ‘to sugar coat’ was perhaps first used in a figurative sense by Abraham Lincoln in 1861. Modern […]

  • Has Google grouted the curiosity gap?

    Posted on May 29, 2018

    When people start to read an article, particularly if it’s a news or informative piece, they do so hoping that they will know something by the time they have finished that they didn’t know before. This distance between what they know and hope to know is called the ‘curiosity gap’. Copywriters, journalists and anyone in […]

  • Brew Cards Infographic, updated rules

    Posted on October 22, 2014

    Two years ago we produced our first ‘brew cards’ infographic, to help explain the complex rules we have here at Engage Web for brew making in the office.

  • The growing importance of infographics

    Posted on August 30, 2013

    In a world saturated with adverts, stories and statistics, and with the internet only a mere click away, there is a real danger of consumers being overloaded – trawling through so much information can be monotonous. A well-designed infographic, however, can set companies apart from their competitors and should also enhance brand awareness. So many […]
