Identities – those stars behind our People Projects

Tracey Blunn + Dr.Nigel Smith
Thank you to the Priory Hospital (and Dr. Nigel Smith) for sponsoring World of Water.

– How did it work for you?

Great People create great projects and when projects are lucky enough to get the backing at the right time, they surface and make the headlines.

But what of the energy and the inspired thinking that continues un-noticed?

If you have news of projects and aims that should be out there on the frontline getting noticed, let us know and we’ll see if we can do our bit to shout about them from here at ‘HoBB Virtual’.

Can you name this Fungi …

There are four books on Fungi in the HoBB library. I’ve searched through all of them but still cannot identify this species that I found growing in a flint gravel driveway, Sept. 2021.

Can anyone help?


King Offa’s own Badge

When you need to refresh your clothes,
Your shoes, including your toes.
When your pigment’s been bleached
And your end has been reached
We are here at the end of your nose. Hello.


With a little help from his loyal subjects, King Offa has new clothes. Whilst his PR guys were pushing for something bright and vivid – Offa was hooked of the look-of-his-age – something cosy and matching his long long long long Dyke.

We brought in a selection of hand woven local materials whilst his PR guys spoke of a flashy new brand identity for ‘the street’. We quietly created a look to emphasise the rural  nature of his earth workings and combined it with a simple back-to-basics head band. Offa smiled, which is rare for him, and gave us the go ahead for the makeover. Exit PR guys. Enter quality.

We worked with Julia’s structure to freshen Offa’s image and adapted Joanne’s early colour scheme to fit in with Offa’s back to nature range. He wanted to ensure that his regular and new visitors to Knighton would still be able to recognise him in logo form as well as a welcoming character to the Offa’s Dyke Centre where tourists come to find news of all the local attractions and supporting local businesses.

When the new badges are ready, Offa will be presented with the first one we unpack, along with files of his logo in various formats so he can use it for greetings cards, forms and party invites.

Offa’s new brand identity badge is fit for every dyke walking king and queen as they arrive in Knighton from the North and South.
