Merry Christmas

It’s that time of year again. The cold, dark nights have taken hold and Christmas is upon us. It’s almost time for us to shut down our computers, lock up the studio and head home for a well deserved break.

This week the ADOsquad have been diligently working away to ensure that all work is wrapped up and that our clients and their businesses are prepared for the festive break.

It’s been busy. We’ve worked our way through a fair few mince pies and the studio has been filled with festive music. Some of which was provided by our good friend, the Manchester based artist Kamal Arafa, who, along with some talented musician friends, has written and recorded a fantastically festive song “It’s Christmas Time Again”! We were lucky enough to be one of only 50 recipients to receive a free copy (ours was #11). You can have a listen to it here.

Kamal also designed the cover artwork. Do you like his style? He also designs t-shirts, have a look and buy one of them here via his online store. So thanks to Kamal (and said mince pies) we are feeling well and truly in the festive mood.

We will be in the studio until Friday afternoon and we will be locking the doors until our return to work on the 7th January 2013. However, Steve will be available via email ( for any problems or enquiries you may have over the holidays. But do remember, poor Steve needs a holiday too, so please keep it only to urgent enquiries where possible!

It’s been a very busy year for us, and the new year looks set to be our busiest yet! We are all looking forward to a fresh start in January when we will be rolling out some exciting new plans.

We would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a fantastic new year.

Christmas Shutdown

Following a fantastic year of business at ADOtowers the team are being treated to a well deserved break! Therefore we will be closing the studio over the Christmas period from 22nd December until 5th January 2012.

On behalf of everyone at ADOmedia I would like to thank each and every one of our loyal clients and suppliers. Your help and support really means a lot and we hope to work with you all again next year!

Have a fantastic Christmas and see you soon.

The final countdown!

Yes folks, it’s December already. Nope, we don’t know quite how that happened either! If you are running behind, then chances are that you may not have thought to sort out your last minute Christmas promotions or sent out your clients Christmas cards. It’s a busy old time for everyone… especially if you are running a business. But don’t forget, these last minute promotions and thoughtful thank you’s to your valued clients can really make all the difference.

There is still time to send out your promotional e-shots and jovial e-cards. Just drop us an email or give us a bell on 01625 612 198 and we’ll get it sorted for you, we are here to help.

And finally…

A huge thank you to everyone who supported our moustache sprouting efforts in aid of Movember and mens health, a cause very close to our… hearts. The final tally was a whopping (drum roll please)…£315.00! Tashtastic!
I have grown rather fond of mine and have decided to keep my lip warmer for a while longer, a fluffy reminder of your astounding  support and generosity. Thanks everyone!

Here is a final snap of the completed hairy appendages:

Moustache update and other things…

Yet another busy week at ADOtowers. Our nostril skirts are coming along nicely and, as I suspected, we are suddenly wielding all new powers. We are stronger, more powerful, healthier and wealthier!… well that may be a slight exaggeration but we are certainly… hairier! So far we’ve managed to raise £279.00 for Movember… and all courtesy of our magnificent chums and supporters! Thanks guys, a big old high five coming at you from team ADO. If you would like to get involved or donate then follow this link to our page. We will continue to update you with our progress until the end of the month.

This is where we are at the moment:

We will update our website with the latest photo evidence every week so you can keep up to date with our venture into facial hair.

Speaking of the end of the month, did you realise it’s practically Christmas? Yup, I hate to break it to you but we’ve got just 35 days (and 36 sleeps to go). Now before you all run away screaming from your desks to begin the frenzied panic buying, mince pie eating and gift wrapping, it might be an idea to think of your clients. It is the time as they say, to spread good cheer, so why not make them feel appreciated? The moustachioed band of brothers here at ADOmedia can certainly help.

If you are one of the lucky ones and you already have one of our websites in place, we can help you to put together an e-shot or e-card personalised for your business and emailed directly to your selected recipients. Perhaps you would prefer something a little more traditional, we can also help you to put together some eye-catching festive cards, signs, menus or flyers to promote your yuletide wares and special deals. So whether you want to simply let your clients know that you care or keep them in the loop about your merry little offers, just give us a call. We can’t speed up your amazon deliveries but can certainly help with your Christmas promotions.

Ooh pass the eggnog…

Jingle Bells

Christmas is fast approaching and we are in the process of winding down for our closure for the holidays on the 23rd December 2008. Our offices will re-open again on the 5th January 2009. So if you need any work completing this year then let us know as soon as possible!

Everyone in ADOmedia is busy with projects that we will be able to tell you more about in the new year… watch this space. Last week we completed the first two of a range of four adverts for our good client Collins Performance Engineering. We have done plenty of work for them including their on-line shop as well as a host of printed work. The first two adverts will be seen in the upcoming Fast Ford publication.

Projects on the board that we are working our way through this month include an online locket shop for local jewellers Don Massey, stationery development and website designs for Iron Manpower, corporate identity for a rail engineering recruitment company and a load of other jobs which we can’t mention for the time being as they are hush, hush… sorry!

One more thing, another of our clients and trusted partner we work with, Nexus IT Services’ website went live last week. Don’t look anywhere else for all your IT requirements, they are great guys who actually know their stuff.
