Mobas moves up the national rankings in UK’s Top 100 Design Agencies

Cambridge-based Mobas has once again achieved regional and national recognition as a Top 100 UK Design Agency. Marketing and media publication The Drum reaffirmed Mobas as one of the fastest growing integrated agencies in the East of England, as it continues to thrive on creativity and deliver successful campaigns. The Design 100, which reviews design talent across Britain, is judged on criteria that includes recommendations from current clients, company turnover and profit per head.

A spokesperson for The Drum states: “A trend towards integration and convergence was evident this year, as statistics showed 71% listed advertising as one of their disciplines, however, as consumer behaviour continues to revolve more and more around online activity, the majority of the top 100 counted digital as a discipline and listed by 83% of agencies, while 91% of those in the financial table listed branding as a business discipline.”

Rob Bryant concludes: “The Drum’s high ranking of Mobas reaffirms our commitment to be one of the best agencies in the UK – and one with a strong commitment to today’s digital influence in design, and indeed across all of our disciplines.”

Homeowners must do their homework before considering home remodel

As spring will come in may, many homeowners can take advantage of the embellishment of their House during the "National Home Remodeling month."  Before you take a hammer to an obsolete kitchen or ripping off the last piece of siding that has been damaged by a furious wind storm, homeowners must do their homework first to bask in the glow of a successful renovation project.

There are thousands of entrepreneurs who claim to be certified and experienced, but can't figure out how budget a project or provide owners, workmanship and quality materials.  Jay Cipriani, owner of Cipriani remodeling Solutions, advises owners to be aware of something that may seem to be a good thing. "Most of these people have no idea how to run a retouching of the undertaking or to leave the homeowner with a good experience," said Jay Cipriani.  Cipriani is one of the largest companies of renovation House of southern New Jersey.

"They (contractors) do not know the things that must legally be in a home improvement contract to protect the owner of a House."  This means that if there is a problem during or after work, homeowners are left with few resources, "added Cipriani.

According to Cipriani, homeowners should do plenty of research before hiring someone for a remodeling project and should not just choose a name in the telephone directory.  It offers the following questions that a homeowner should ask when deciding on a contractor:

The contractor has a permanent settlement and a good reputation among local banks, suppliers and officials of the building? Request the contractor to provide the names and contact information for these people and then do a reference check.

Belongs to the contractor in good standing of a professional association?

How long has it been in business?  The contractor a licence or registration, if necessary in your area?

Check references.  It is important that you speak with people who have hired the renovator to do work similar to yours and ask if they would hire the contractor again.

Have you seen the work of the contractor completed and underway?  Check the quality of manufacture and materials.

Did you call the local Better Business Bureau or Consumer Affairs Office?  They can alert you to all complaints pending.

Was the contractor evidence of accidents and general liability insurance?  If not, you can be held responsible for any construction accident on your premises or damage to your property.

Reader Award selection.  If you like a contractor and are uncomfortable with his work, but he arrived with an offer that exceeds your price, ask what can be reduced to meet your budget.

Are you able to communicate easily with the contractor?  Misunderstandings during a project may lead to delays and cost overruns.

Do you feel comfortable with the contractor?  Remember, you will be in close contact with him and share your home with his crew, until the project is completed.

The contractor will provide a complete contract and well written as required by law?

Ask what type of warranty is offered.  Most remodelers offer some sort of guarantee in writing.

For more than 30 years, the company has been homeowners in southern New Jersey, North of Delaware and Southeastern Pennsylvania.

Mr Four Fingers’ First Solo Exhibition

London UK, Mr Four Fingers, a London-based art and illustration duo, are busy preparing for their first exhibition, aptly named What Lies Beneath, taking place on the 5th of April and ending on the 28th April. This is Mr Four Fingers’ first solo show and the South African-born duo are hoping to intrigue and excite with a variety of original artwork, limited edition prints, sculpture, fashion and t-shirt designs.

The opening night, of the exhibition is taking place on the 5th of April at the Haggerston Espresso Room, in Haggerston, East London. The venue is an intimate coffee shop/gallery space which is a little unconventional compared to your regular London galleries and Mr Four Fingers is hoping that this will make their work more accessible to the public. These are guys who like to go against the grain and their first attempt at curating their collection of work sounds inviting with the inclusion of DJ’s, cakes, free alcohol and even shots of Tequila plus the first 10 people to spend £30 or more  receive a free gift bag.

Mr Four Fingers commented on the up-and-coming event: “We’re excited to be showing our collection of art, illustration and t-shirt design to the world in our first solo show. Our ideas and illustration, which have been spawned from the darker realms of our human psyche, convey images with dark undertones, visions of mortality and representations of who we are underneath. Plus we just like making cool shit.”

Original work and Limited edition prints from Mr Four Fingers have already been featured at the Curious Duke and Brick Lane Galleries this past year and a solo show is the obvious ’ next step’ for a determined pair who are producing new work at a rapid rate. The show also sees collaborations with Elizabeth Dunn, an up-and-coming fashion label and In Her Glory, creator of crude knitted cushions and dark crafts.

Mr Four Fingers added: “We never imagined we would be doing anything like this. We started Mr Four Fingers as a playground for our ideas and now like some weird science experiment the beast has learned to walk.” Go and share a beer with them on their opening night and view their story which has been told through a mix of inks, illustrations and skulls.

The concept of barn quilts began with Donna Sue Groves and its desire to honour his mother, Maxine and his inheritance of the Appalachians by the presence of a painted quilt hung on his barn in Adams County, Ohio. As friends has promoted the project, Donna Sue suggested instead that a "sampler" of quilt twenty seats could be created on a trail of conduct which will invite visitors to travel through the countryside. The first quilt square was a Star of Ohio, painted by local artists installed in 2001 on a building in a greenhouse in Manchester, Ohio. With the encouragement of Donna Sue Groves, other quilt trails began in Ohio, Tennessee, Kentucky and Iowa. This simple idea gradually extended to 44 States and Canada, and the trail continues to grow. More than 4,000 quilts are part of organized trails; the tens, more are scattered through the countryside waiting to be discovered. Find more information

The Vintage Hour - Celebrating Two Years Of Broadcasting To The World

Dave opens each show by describing the time line covered as 'the best in vintage music from the 1920s to the 1970s...and way beyond!'. Those three words say it best. Dave covers far more than those 'official' vintage years. Over the past 24 months, music from as far back as the 1880s and as modern as a track or two from today has found its way into The Vintage Hour. Dave: 'I have a John Peel approach to music. I have a curious mind and a love of the unknown, the new, the daring. I hope that my show reflects this.'

We think it does. Banned Music, Global Music and a complete show broadcast using an old wind-up gramophone and a stack of shellac 78s are a few examples of Dave's style. There is no danger of slowing down or running out of ideas, and surely it is only a matter of time before Dave graces the national airwaves with a syndicated show. The Vintage Hour Second Birthday Edition is available at Stroud FMs Listen Again facilty at or by following this link:

Hi – I’m Dave Ireland…why not join me for the next sixty minutes as we journey back in time for some of the best in vintage music from the 1920s to the 1970s and way beyond.

The bunting is out, the flags are flying and the red carpet is stretched all the way from the car park at the top of town to the gilded portals of the Stroud FM Studios…Yes, folks! The special day has finally arrived. It’s Time After Time the Vintage Hour’s Second Birthday. 104 shows, goodness knows how many tunes and after twenty four months of the Vintage Hour, we have listeners all over the world.

So, kicking off the show in my inimitable style…with a song that could be another of my themes: Anything Goes…

•   Tony Bennett – Anything Goes
•   Monk Hazel and his Bienville Roof Orchestra with Sizzling The Blues
•   De Paris Brothers Orchestra – Change Of Key Boogie
•   Willie Smith Six – I Found A New Baby
•   Edith Piaf – Non Je Ne Regrette Rien
•   John Lee Hooker – Boom Boom
•   Pete Seeger – Goodnight Irene
•   Judy Garland with Gene Kelly – For Me And My Gal
•   The Pointer Sisters with Fats Waller’s Your Feet’s Too Big
•   Nina Simone – Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood.
•   Bobby Darin – Mack the Knife
•   Buddy Holly – Everyday
•   Beatles – Love Me Do – featuring Pete Best On Drums
•   Dusty Springfield – The Windmills Of My Mind
•   Bobbie Gentry – Ode To Billy Joe
•   Round The Horne – Butch Boutique
•   Dory Previn – Yada Yada…
•   Donovan – Colours
•   Abba – Summer Night City

•   I’m Dave Ireland and you’ve been listening to The Second Birthday Edition of Time After Time The Vintage Hour on Stroud FM 107.9 your community radio station.
Thanks to Laura my producer for humping the fifteen mailbags of birthday cards up to the attic studio and thanks to Sam for giving me the special birthday tattoo on the birthday suit I decided to wear during this week’s show and thank you for joining me on this week’s very special show…oh, and Coco for being a good dog and NOT eating Cresbie’s cables.

Elsa Schiaparelli Style Inspires Georgian Era Statement Necklace from Sweet Romance

Fashion in the 1940s was distinctive, vibrant and glamorous.  Women brought elegance and style to their everyday outfits and donned big and showy costume jewelry to finish their look for evening when cocktail parties were THE way to entertain.  

Between WWI and WWII, the fashion houses of Chanel, Dior and Schiaparelli dominated the world of fashion design, but it was Elsa Schiaparelli who was the most innovative and experimental. She dazzled the fashion world with costume jewelry designs of large scale and materials made expressly for her collections by companies such as Daniel Swarovski.

“Schiaparelli believed jewelry was of critical importance to fashion,” explains historian and designer Shelley Cooper.  “She would readily pair an 18th century look like this necklace with modern 1920s fashion.”

The Floral a Filigree Collar from Sweet Romance features layers of teardrop and round filigree beads alternating between molded coraline coral accent stations attached to a heavy cable chain. These necklaces were meant to be dramatic and showy, and this same retro style lives on in the designs of Shelley Cooper.  

Sweet Romance Jewelry Manufacturing is an American design house and manufacturer producing the jewelry lines of Sweet Romance and Ollipop.  CEO Shelley Copper is an artist, designer and historian who weaves history, beauty and imagination into jewelry designs which radiate the authenticity and spirit of many eras of fashion history.  Her lines are sold to retailers and wholesalers worldwide as well as through the online jewelry boutique at and

The Software Project Manager's Bridge to Agility

When software development teams move to agile methods, experienced project managers often struggle—doubtful about the new approach and uncertain about their new roles and responsibilities. In this book, two long-time certified Project Management Professionals (PMPRs) and Scrum trainers have built a bridge to this dynamic new paradigm. They show experienced project managers how to successfully transition to agile by refocusing on facilitation and collaboration, not “command and control.”


The authors begin by explaining how agile works: how it differs from traditional “plan-driven” methodologies, the benefits it promises, and the real-world results it delivers. Next, they systematically map the Project Management Institute’s classic, methodology-independent techniques and terminology to agile practices. They cover both process and project lifecycles and carefully address vital issues ranging from scope and time to cost management and stakeholder communication. Finally, drawing on their own extensive personal experience, they put a human face on your personal transition to agile--covering the emotional challenges, personal values, and key leadership traits you’ll need to succeed.

Coverage includes

  • Relating the PMBOKR Guide ideals to agile practices: similarities, overlaps, and differences

  • Understanding the role and value of agile techniques such as iteration/release planning and retrospectives

  • Using agile techniques to systematically and continually reduce risk

  • Implementing quality assurance (QA) where it belongs: in analysis, design, defect prevention, and continuous improvement

  • Learning to trust your teams and listen for their discoveries

  • Procuring, purchasing, and contracting for software in agile, collaborative environments

  • Avoiding the common mistakes software teams make in transitioning to agile

  • Coordinating with project management offices and non-agile teams

  • “Selling” agile within your teams and throughout your organization

For every project manager who wants to become more agile.

-Create a customized estate plan with a Will, Health Care Directive, and other essential documents

-Documents reflect the laws of your state*

-Easy interview format lets you complete documents at your own pace

-User-friendly legal manual answers common questions

Quicken WillMaker Plus is the original will-writing software, written and updated regularly by Nolo’s expert attorneys. Free legal updates will keep your program current through 2013. Technical support is also available.

New for 2013:

-Updated with new estate and gift law tax information

Plus, get a free living trust! Spare your family from the hassle and expense of probate court as they carry out your wishes. Quicken WillMaker Plus 2013 gives you free access to Nolo's Online Living Trust, a $169 value.

Here’s a deeper look at what you can do with Quicken WillMaker Plus:

Your Will

The heart of every estate plan is a will, also known as a last will and testament. This legal document puts you in control of who inherits your property and who would assume guardianship of your children if it were ever necessary. Without a will, state law will determine these issues. Your will allows you to name an executor (“personal representative”) whose job it is to see that your wishes are carried out. And you can appoint a trusted person to manage property left to young people. With Quicken WillMaker Plus, you can revise and update your will whenever you like.

Your Health Care Directive. Spares your loved ones difficult decisions by laying out your wishes for medical care and naming someone to carry those wishes:

Health Care Power of Attorney
Permit a loved one to make important medical decisions for you if necessary.

Living Will
Specify whether you want your life prolonged through artificial means in certain circumstances and set out your wishes about specific medical treatments and procedures.

Your Final Arrangements

Plan a funeral or other ceremony and ease the burden on your loved ones. Describe your preferences for burial, cremation, memorials, obituaries, and more, and select someone to oversee your final arrangements.

Documents for Your Executor

Make sure your executor has all the forms and instructions necessary to do the job: checklists, letters, notices, claim forms and more.

Information for Caregivers and Survivors

Organize your estate so that your survivors don't have to. Use these documents to give them information about everything from bank accounts to the names of people you'd like contacted in the event of your illness or death.

Personal Finance Documents

Over a dozen forms let you handle common financial situations, such as lending or borrowing money between friends or family, creating a bill of sales, and ending a credit card account.

Home & Family Documents

Practical forms you can use every day to help run your home and keep your family safe, including authorizations and agreements, promissory notes, limited powers of attorney, and child and elder care forms.

*Estate planning documents not valid in Louisiana or U.S. Territories.

Manny Gonzalez of KTGY offers Insights on Green Building - it Doing Right

National Award-winning architecture and planning firm KTGY Group, Inc.'s thought-leader Manny Gonzalez, AIA, LEED AP, principal and, says that putting the right design team together and selecting the right product and density that provides the best return on investment are vital to success. "A good design team can be very innovative in interpreting zoning and building codes. "A perfect example of this are the walk up garden apartments KTGY has been designing at densities over 40 units to the acre and urban wood-frame apartments over 200 units to the acre," noted Gonzalez.

"We also need to be aware of the latest products and technology that can help us create affordable, sustainable communities. "But, just as important, are the 'low tech' opportunities like using 2'x 6' studs at 24-inch centers and installing electrical outlets that stop 'vampire' charging," Gonzalez said.

"While developers are embracing the sustainable practices that LEED promotes, they seem to be less willing to pay the added cost of certification and commissioning. Just building to the current California Building Code nearly guarantees that a project can achieve LEED certification. However, the six-figure cost for LEED certification is one of the first line items to get scratched from any development budget. "Because of this, I think you will be seeing more and more 'LEED inspired' projects in the future," Gonzalez stated.

"As cities update their building codes, they will undoubtedly continue to add green building regulations, which will level the playing field for the construction industry as a whole since it will no longer be an elective cost to build green." But being able to build green in an affordable manner will put the savvy builders ahead of the pack,"said Gonzalez.

"One of my favorite examples is Garbett Homes and the KTGY - designed Solaris Collection at Daybreak, a single family community near Salt Lake City, where a billboard with a picture of one of the community's homeowners has a quote that reads, ' My power bill is $5." What's yours?' " González stated.

The Solaris Collection was named Residential Project of the Year in the detached product category and won a Gold Nugget Grand Award in 2012. Solaris offers high-density ENERGY STAR rated single-family homes for cost-conscious, eco-minded buyer, from the low $200, 000 s. Unique to this price-point, Garbett Homes includes solar panels, geothermal heating and cooling, and a super-tight energy-efficient building envelope with HERS ratings under 40 in a Climate Zone 5, which saves residents up to 70% on their monthly utility bills. The homes' eclectic, modern exteriors with fiber-cement siding are used in unique ways not seen before in this market and a vibrant color palette add to the overall unique appeal, according to Gonzalez.

Garbett Home's urban infill project, TerraSol in nearby South Salt Lake, broke ground in August 2011, and all 60 homes were sold by April 2012, without Garbett Homes building any spec homes, according to Gonzalez. The single-family homes designed by KTGY are ENERGY STAR rated and include as standard either photovoltaic solar and solar hot water or geothermal heating and cooling.

"While KTGY has been quite busy with many exciting new sustainable projects, the ABC Green Home is certainly one of the most important to the homebuilding industry," Gonzalez said. "Being able to demonstrate that architects can design a Net Zero Energy home that is affordable, buildable and certifiable has been a tremendous opportunity for KTGY."

According to Gonzalez, the project's designer, the ABC Green Home is a 1, 695-square-foot single-story affordable, entry-level, certified green home, the first of its kind to be built by Southern California Edison (SCE) or any utility company. Built in 70 days and sponsored by Green Home Builder magazine, the ABC Green Home is currently on display at the Great Park in Irvine, Calif., and is open to the public. The home will be on display for the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2013, October 3-13, at the Great Park. This is the first time this world-famous competition will be held outside of Washington DC, and the ABC Home will be a key display. Eventually, the home will be donated to Habitat for Humanity and given to a wounded service person.

Gonzalez added, "Another exciting project designed by KTGY is Primera Terra, a LEED Platinum luxury for-sale multifamily community in Playa Vista, Calif., developed by KB Home." "An innovative redesign/repositioning solution, Primera Terra achieved LEED Platinum certification without incorporating solar panels."  Primera Terra won numerous top honors in 2012 including the NAHB Pillars of the Industry and BALA award programs and the EcoHome Design Grand Award. plus the USGBC LEED for Homes Award in the Multifamily category in 2011.

Other recently completed sustainable multifamily communities designed by KTGY include Dana Strand in Los Angeles, a LEED Gold 100 - unit senior apartment community, which was a public/private partnership between the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA) with ROEM Development Corporation and Dana Strand Senior, LLC. Dana Strand combined eco-friendly design with luxury, amenity-rich living at an affordable rental rate specifically targeting the needs of seniors 62 years and better. Dana Strand received has NAHB Best 50 + Gold Award in the Affordable Rental Community category in 2012.

Heritage Oaks Senior Apartments in Oakdale, Calif., is a LEED Platinum 50 - unit apartment community for low-income seniors age 55 and better, which was designed by KTGY and developed by Central Valley Coalition for Affordable Housing and Adroit Development, Inc. The community offers a variety of creative indoor and outdoor amenities including a "Garage" with wide workbenches for the men and a hobby and craft studio for the women. Residents can even try out their green thumb skills at the raised-bed gardening areas. Construction was completed in 10 months and ahead of schedule. and was 100% leased within 3 months of the completion date. Heritage Oaks earned several awards in 2012 including NAHB Best of 50 + Gold Award for the Best 50 + Outdoor Amenity and a special Innovation Award for the Outdoor Amenity for the community's "Garage."

Gonzalez will showcase thesis award-winning green projects at the 2013 NAA Green Conference on April 15-17, 2013, in Baltimore, MD. Gonzalez will be joined by panelists William J. Greene, III, of Wood Partners; David Woodward of CompassRock; and Matt Miller, industry principal for Yardi Energy Solutions ™, will serve as moderator on the panel "Green Building and Utility Management - Doing it Right Makes Sense." Hundreds of multifamily property managers, developers and suppliers will gather at the 2013 NAA Green Conference, which is sponsored by the National Apartment Association. Gonzalez is based in KTGY's Santa Monica office.
