The struggle for a day for dads

All over the world, people have a unique and special relationship with their old man. Some good, some not so much, but unique all in their own way. Reflective about the fact that Father’s Day is here in Australia, it got me pondering about the history of a day dedicated…

What I never told my dad

Each and every one of us has a special and unique relationship with our old man. But we’d be lying if we said we didn’t hide secrets, large and small, from them. It’s Father’s Day coming up in Australia, so we thought what better way to celebrate our new book…

Books for brilliant brothers

As a company that wants to help make the world feel a bit more human by celebrating relationships, it makes sense that we spend a lot of time thinking about love. It’s certainly a lot better than spending your entire working day looking at spreadsheets. We put a lot of…

Luckily I wasn’t in charge of designing our new Australian book – we had our very own TBOE designers proudly wielding their paintbrushes for this one. Cleverly splashing streaks of yellows, reds, blues and greens across the pages…

Getting personal with innovative tech

As someone working in a digital startup I probably shouldn’t admit this, but I don’t fully understand our tech.  But maybe I don’t need to. Perhaps the measure of smart technology is that it does spectacularly clever things without mere mortals like me even noticing. As far as I’m concerned,…
