Have our indigenous press publishers really had their chips?

I started my media career in 2000 at The Scotsman Publications’ Holyrood HQ in Edinburgh, just a stone’s throw from where the Scottish parliament now sits. This was back in a simpler, pre-Smartphone, era, when Big Brother was yet to hit our TV screens, turkey twizzlers were still on the school menu and editor-in-chief and political rabble-rouser Andrew Neil held the keys to the kingdom.

Neil loved nothing more than shaking things up and managed […]

18 years in the making: changes to media planning since Space and Time Media launched in 2000

It isn’t a startling revelation to point out that advances in media technology and the ways in which consumers access information are driving profound, fundamental change at an accelerating pace. If you want to feel old, show a CD to a five-year-old.

Less obvious to many is that for all this change, the basic role of media within our lives remains constant: when media works, it connects us to friends and family, powers our careers, […]

Be prepared for ‘data privacy backlash’ in 2018

News reports last week include some problematic stories for the media industry. ‘Advertisers use Google phone apps to eavesdrop on TV viewers’, The Independent and ‘Hundreds of smartphone apps are monitoring users through their microphones’ The Independent. Or perhaps most worryingly, ‘Some mobile games are listening to what children watch’ Engadget.

The original source of this troubling news item is a recent New York Times story, concerning American software company Alphonso whose solution is used […]

Space and Time strike a pose at Vogue House

This month Space and Time were delighted to attend a very special dining experience at the iconic Vogue House, located in Mayfair, London.

We were wined and dined in style whilst learning more about the fascinating history of the prestigious Condé Nast publishing house. Although some details of this business and its heritage are well known, there were several fascinating nuggets revealed on the day which were news to even the most fashion-fascinated among us.

Does out of home build trust for brands?

Last month saw the relaunch of the famous Piccadilly Lights. The lights had been out of action for a number of months and so the great and the good of the advertising industry assembled to see the new-look Piccadilly come back to life in its new form – and it’s as impressive as ever.

One of the most recognisable advertising locations in the world, the biggest brands have fought for space on this location ever […]

GDPR Mythbusting

With only 6 months to go, there still seems to be a lot of scaremongering surrounding the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), so here at Space and Time we wanted to dispel some of the myths out there and give you the truth – warts and all.

Myth 1: Brexit means we won’t be affected

For a short while, some marketers thought they’d dodged the GDPR-bullet. “Hurrah”, we’d read in forums, “now I don’t need to worry about […]

Connected Marketing

Fresh from two days spent listening to some insightful talks and mixing with the global travel industry’s deal-makers at London’s World Travel Market (WTM), I was perhaps ready-primed when I heard a spot on the radio for Thomson, the UK’s biggest travel company, who have now rebranded to ‘TUI’. Working in advertising, every so often we see an ad campaign, a visual or perhaps just a slogan that we wish we’d come up with […]
