Class gives poor boy a smartphone ❤

 

 

A student’s class celebrates his birthday. Coming from a poor family, the boy receives a gift that is beyond his wildest dreams. His reaction is quite moving. Money and expensive things aren’t everything, but the love of your friends is priceless.

GDPR

 

Today marks the launch of GDPR, the Europe-wide data protection legislation which gives more power to the individual about how their data is used, gathered, treated and stored by public and private corporations. As someone who works a great deal with customer data, this is something I’ve been prepared for for a while. My inbox meanwhile, is groaning from all the GDPR compliance emails from companies I never realised I had any dealings with XD

Dreaming of getting on the property ladder?

 

I’m a dreamer, I must confess. I’m hoping to eventually at least part-buy a house after years of god-forsaken housesharing. I’ve managed to save a lot towards a deposit so far, but London property prices at an all-time high, I don’t know if I’ll realise this dream of being a homeowner/first-time buyer.

I received this GIF via email in late August.

Something new has landed at ClearScore

 

A GIF from a ClearScore email I received in July 2017, promoting their rejigged mobile phone app. There’s an iPhone showing the app in use. It looks very cool, although I haven’t downloaded it myself… yet. Notice also the subtly colour shifting gradients at the bottom of the GIF. Oddly satisfying.

iPhoneWave

 

This piece is based on a stock photo of someone’s hand holding an iPhone. I added effects via Blingee, then post-processed via the ScreenToGif software program. This piece combines aspects of the vaporwave art movement with normal advertising layout standards. Some could view this as a subtle critique on consumerism, but I’ll leave you to create your own impression.
