Box Bush Bricks (Buxus)

Potted Box BushesHi,

I’ve some great ideas for anyone involved or interested in box trees (Buxus) and topiary, who would love to profit from spending some effort and time indulging in their enjoyment of horticulture.

I make it my personal goal to use all my brain’s down-time for thinking up a whole spectrum of ideas.

Some are impractical, wacky and weird, all need continual update in a fast world, but some can be gems if you put together the right team to progress them.

The concept underpinning the HoBB began with an urge to explore more creative ways to live and to channel these ways to good effect. Here at the HoBB, a vitality grows promoted by the surroundings.

Anytime we are unable to carry forward an idea ourselves, we ‘direct it into up currents’ and will it to climb. I can’t remember who said it, but as “originality is just undiscovered plagiarism”, we know that somebody else is sitting somewhere having similar ideas, but all important is the speed at which the idea is accomplished and making sure you link the best people to put it together and work it.

So if you see anything through these HoBBlogs that you want to follow up, act swiftly and contact me without delay

‘Trade Colours’ – a masterpiece

trade stand of many textures and coloursDesigning trade shows has never been so colourful. One painting that always catches the attention of visitors to the HoBB was prepared by us as a trade stand design for a producer of paints and finishes.

Our design brief was to incorporate as much of their range as possible but in large enough panels to allow visitors to ‘dwell’ upon individual colours as they walked through an environment of walls and textures.

The last trade show I went to see was at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham. In the main halls, vast trade stands were under construction ready to be fronted by neatened well produced staff or specially trained ‘fronters’. The atmosphere was charged with ‘push’ and it made me pensive, thinking of the deals that needed to be done on these plastic and wood stages to keep jobs going and economies growing.

I went into the overseas pavilion where units were small and blood heats were normal. Here, the owners and managers of companies were talking to each other. Here, the day before opening, the simpler stands were in place as a morning market might be, ready for people to be greeted. Here, I was offered countless invitations and given warm smiles. Their enthusiasm for trade was almost bloodcurdling; I had to smile back, even though I well understood their power to drain the life of many established communities in partnership with many in the larger halls.
