We’re a litter bit fond of Chewie, the angel who sits at the top of our recycling tree🎄🌟
 
This Christmas ♻️by recycling your waste safely, reusing or it, placing it in the bin instead of littering, you can stop pets from being injured, and even save an animal’s life. 🐾⛑

Happy Howlidays Chewie, we look forward to seeing you and urbaser in the New Year ✨

A new month & another Typography Tuesday!
.
This is Garamond. The original G.
.
A classic serif typeface that originated in the designs of French punch-cutter Claude Garamond. Such is its timeless appeal that Garamond is still widely used today, especially as a beautifully legible typeface in books… We’re talking harrypotterfilm & drseuss aswell as some great logos for the likes of abercrombie 
.
Classic Serif? Yes please.

We’re getting spooky in preparation for our favourite holiday of the year! We’ve been discussing horror flicks over our coffee this morning and the conversation has been heated! Everyone has made their claim for their favourites!
.
We had some classic old school 80’s zombie horror, found footage, slasher, supernatural horror & to lighten the mood some comedy horror. In the end there was one clear winner…
.
Halloween! (Quite fitting really as it was released on this day in 1978)
.
Check out this killer design (see what we did there?) from jasonedmistonart of the infamous Michael Myers!

It’s National James Bond Day and also an incredible 59 years since the release of the original Bond film, Dr. No, but do you know the origin of these famous three numbers?
.
James Bond's 007 status is legendary. Bond has become synonymous with "007" - those three numbers that denote his famous license to kill, in Goldeneye Font.
.
Today we are looking at the 007 font and how it has stood the test of time as one of the most recognized movie logos ever.  The logo, designed in 1962 was composed of three bold and sleek black digits “007” with a black gun coming out of the “7” and pointing to the right so that the digit became a handle of the gun. The numbers, executed in thick lines with smooth contours have some of the edges slightly curved, which adds a sense of luxury and style. A bit like bond himself! 🍸 
.
The black and white colour scheme of the Bond logo is a perfect choice, allowing placement on any possible surface and pattern.
.
59 years old and still selling out cinemas! Iconic typography at its best.

This months Meet The Team feature is on Paul, our chief Account Manager here at Origin.
.
Paul has been in the print industry since he left school… that is a whopping 37 years’ experience and has been part of the Origin team for the past 17 years. Paul has seen many changes along the way and has been archetypal in the development of the business in that time.
.
Paul loves working with the team who all have their different characters and enjoys the bespoke nature of Origin where no two days are the same! At weekends Paul can be found at a grass roots football ground watching local football having played and managed for his village team for many years ⚽️ Any excuse to have a beer or two after the game and enjoy the banter Paul? 🍻 
.
Recent years have seen Paul develop a passion for cooking and even a spot of gardening… oh and there’s always plenty of dog sitting from the family’s ever increasing dog family 🐶 
 .
If Paul could share a meal with any 4 people it would be Roy Keane, Jamie Oliver, Paul Weller and Bono. Great choices!!!

This months Meet The Team feature is all about Sue, our wonderful Account Manager. Sue has worked at origin for over 6 years and loves the variety each day holds! Making customers happy is Sue’s number one goal.
 
Our blonde bombshell loves weekends away by the beach, spending time with her family and a spot of gardening. Sue’s love affair continues in her garden as her fave hobby is flower arranging. When our green fingered queen has put down her trowel at the end of the day, she loves nothing more than sipping on a glass of prosecco & getting lost in a good mystery book.
 
We asked Sue who she would like to play her in a film. Her response? “Any classy blonde lady that looks good for her age!” (We wouldn’t expect anything less Sue) “Kylie Minogue would be a good start”
 
Prosecco, chocolate, 80’s music & her famous pink nail varnish would accompany Sue on a trip to a desert island. If Sue could share a meal with any four people it would be Ricky Gervais, Peter Kay, Mary Berry and George Clooney – “Two to entertain me, one to feed me and one to look at”
 
Why would you want to look at Mary Berry all day Sue….?
