  • Why are some websites still so terrible?

    Posted on March 27, 2017

    The internet has come an incredibly long way in at a relatively short time, meaning that websites can begin to look out of date very quickly. For example, recent years have

  • 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 […]

  • What happens online stays online

    Posted on March 11, 2016

    You may have heard the phrase ‘what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas’ at some point in your life. The phrase refers to Las Vegas, the gambling capital of the world, which is also known as Sin City. The notion that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas means that you’re guaranteed anonymity by the […]

  • Loneliness – down to social media or human nature?

    Posted on March 22, 2017

    A report released this month by counselling organisation Relate gives some sad and worrying statistics about just how many people in the UK feel alone, with one in five of us experiencing loneliness and one in eight saying they have no close friends at all.

  • Have you spotted yourself on Google Street View?

    Posted on March 17, 2017

    Google Street View is one of my favourite tools on the internet and, as someone caught in a compromise between wanderlust and laziness, I find dragging Pegman onto streets all over the world strangely addictive. What’s more, it seems like every time I go on it, there’s even more to see and do. As this […]

    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 […]

    Earlier this month, some of the members from BNI Hooton, a local networking group of which Engage Web is a part, went for a friendly karting session. Now, when I say ‘friendly’, there was obviously some competitive edge to it. Indeed, when the instructor stated there was to be no ‘bumping’, the question of ‘what […]
