Keep your eyes peeled you talented people.
The title is a quote from a famous Scottish manager (Sir Alex Ferguson) after United won the Treble in injury time in 1999. As it turns out, all the greatest managers are Scottish.
Another up and coming Scottish manager (David Clark) has won this seasons fantasy football in a Celtic-esque romp at the top of the table with a points gap wider than a hippo’s yawn. Shane came second, Jay third, Roger 4th, me 5th, Ian 6th and Paul came last dramatically by a single point.
Sadly David won’t be able to join us for the traditional Dilli lunch, but we will raise a glass and send him the change in the post (along with his £1 trophy).
Well done David.
Today we say goodbye to Ian Footitt who is leaving us to take on new challenges.
Ian has been with us for 8 years, and has grown from a freshly graduated art student with an interest in design to an experienced designer with a high level of digital geekdom.
We all wish Ian the best of best wishes in his new role, and will miss having him around.
It was with great pleasure, and a plateful of Danish pastries, that C21 welcomed six students from Abraham Moss High School and their two youth workers, as part of a community initiative to raise student aspirations, funded by BBC’s Children in Need and Manchester City Council.

C21 was my first work placement I have had within the graphic design industry, being the first I was very nervous, but they made me feel very welcome, and I have learned so much.

I sent the lovely people at C21 a picture of my bottom and a request for some work experience. There is slightly more context to the picture of my bottom but nevertheless it earned me a week of invaluable experience.

C21′s baby boom continues with Lindsay being the latest to leave us to have a little one.
In a dramatic deviation from being a typecast female, Lindsay’s favourite colour is pink, and her favourite object is her Mulberry handbag. Luckily for her she is having a little shopping partner (also known as a baby girl).
Good luck Linds, you may be too posh to mosh but not too posh to push!
Today is National No Smoking Day, a day when you are encouraged not to puff any white noxious smoke into the atmosphere.
Ironically, today all eyes are on a chimney in the Vatican hoping to see plumes of white noxious smoke. This signifies there a new Pope has been chosen. If the smoke is black, it means they can’t agree who it should be. If there is no smoke at all, it means they have run out of matches.
If you want to give up smoking, here is a good place to start.
