more new office stuff

When people make the decision to leave innocent for pastures new, we immediately slam the door in their faces and refuse to speak to them ever again.

Not really.

When people make the decision to leave innocent for pastures new, we ask everybody to send in their favourite memories of said person so that our creative team can produce for them their own golden innocent bottle, compete with a personalised label.

The completed bottles look a bit like this:

As part of the recent office refresh we’ve been having, the fourth floor now has a wall dedicated to all of the golden bottle labels we’ve created over the years.

A close up of the wall looks a bit like this:


We’ve also installed a swing ladder to make perusing the wall a bit easier. Not only does it remind us of all the lovely people we’ve met working here over the years, it also means if we’re ever bored we can stand on the ladder and imagine we’re an eccentric old Aristocrat surveying the books in our 14th Century library. Which can really break up a long afternoon.

The wall complete with swing ladder looks a bit like this:

If you’re ever in the area, pop in and give it a try. It’s pretty cool.


our lego wall

On the third floor of Fruit Towers, we once had a very dull wall in need of more than just a lick of paint. So behold - our lego wall.

It took 2 days, 77 baseplates (2 were binned), a 5 minute queue outside Homebase until it opened and 6 litres of very stinky adhesive to put it all together. We feared no one would do any real work once we had it but its okay - after about 10 minutes, your thumbs get sore from pushing lego into the wall so you stop playing. 

Sam did a bit of maths and worked out there are about 160,000 teeny tiny lego studs on the wall.

Here are some photos of how it was built and some army men.

major laser

Office Superman David is playing around with lasers today.

We don’t know why. He claims it’s because he needs to make some really straight lines, and apparently rulers aren’t good enough to do the job.

This sounds like rubbish to us, but we have to admit we’re pretty jealous that he’s now in an elite band of people who get to use lasers as part of their day job. The list now includes:

- Bond villains

- Daleks

- Jedi Knights

- Coldplay

- Superman David

Not bad company to be in.

a little insight into an innocent meeting

we discuss loads of great things during our meetings here at innocent. Sometimes we talk about what kinds of juices we like. Sometimes we talk about why pineapples are called pineapples when they’re neither pines nor apples.

And sometimes we intricately plan the meticulous process of cooking a hen’s egg. If you need proof, have a look below:


Meet Pete and Vince.

One's Scottish and the other Irish. One does something or other in finance and the other does something or other in production. In many ways they couldn't be more different.

They do secretly enjoy dressing the same, however, and try to co-ordinate their outfits as often as possible.

Checked shirts - slowly uniting the nations.
