The hunt for Pointy Fingers.... (posted 27th June 2013)
I have developed a bit of an obsession. It's all about The Pointy Finger. For all those who came to our party or who have had made the trip (trek?) to our new offices then you will know what I am talking about as it has been a great success in guiding all and sundry into our new office. Even some of our most sat-nav-unsavvy fabric reps, who are more used to Kings Road and Wimbledon Village and somehow feel like they might have taken a wrong turn somewhere can manage to find us now.
Whether driving or walking, the instructions to find us are now eminently more simple than they ever were at our previous office. So "straight on along the artery road of the industrial estate (t'was a glamourous location we picked for ourselves), past the bacon sarnie van, right at Wimbledon Studios (see, it gets better doesnt it?), and then veer into our yard the minute you see 'The Pointy Finger'..and if you have got as far as Tenable Screw (yes, there is a company near us called Tenable Screw....I must google them and find out what their service offering is....ok, maybe not, we have a strict internet content policy) then you've gone too far"
So, back to my point (geddit?)...since our foray into the Pointy Finger (on advice from our rather wonderful branding company me&dave, we took a graphic risk and went for the slightly kooky rather than just opting a for boring old arrow, chevron or other form of Pointy Device), I have been seeing them everywhere.
I am tempted to ask Helen if we can have a Pointy Finger wall, and fill it with the massive variety of pointy finger graphics that seem to be out there. We could have Pointy Finger coat hooks, Pointy FInger tea light holders, for our more romantic work meetings, Pointy Finger book ends, keyrings, earrings, and even (and here I must contain myself) Pointy Finger foam pointy fingers....visions of 'it could be YOU' moments in an Alan Sugar 'You're Fired' voice....I think Helen might say no.....
Pointy Fingers, it seems, are everywhere, but go largely unnoticed unless you are the lookout, and I seem to have inadvertantly become a one-man-band-look-out for them. I am even starting to have favourites......anyway, here is a small selection..feel free to send me more (please?!)
...and then the Piece De Resistance...The foam pointy finger Pointy Finger...I really really want one.....
