Cake Friday is a long standing tradition at howies.

Basically, on Friday we have cake.

This Friday is Lily's last day. She has been with us for a few weeks doing work with teepay and design.

So to mark Cake Friday and give Lily a sugary send off - Hollie has made these amazing cupcakes -


Happy Birthdays!

It's Happy Birthday to Hayley and Adam today at howies!

Emma made some cakes, but out of kindness we didn't sing along as Hayley blew out the candles. No one needs to hear the howies office attempt to harmonise their vocals.


It was my birthday on Monday, but we were driving back from the world cup in Scotland and I totally forgot about it til 12 when I looked at my phone... It seems like there are a lot of June babies at howies.

It's been a bit of a busy weekend

Here are a few photos of our adventures... more to follow!

Here's our tent, which was a bit of a saga to set up but finally ended up looking pretty good...


Later we tagged a policeman...


and saw some mountains...


We're at the mountain bike World Cup, so if you're around tomorrow... come and find up! Just follow the trail of stickers.

Chicken: Low Art, High Calorie

  • 2 June 2009



A while back, Siaron Hughes came to do some design work with us.

Now she's published this book.

Throughout the world major fast-food chains are easily recognizable, synonymous, for better or worse, with an American way of life. Far more interesting, however, are the generic fast-food establishments that serve menus that are more or less the same, but not as slicked with corporate marketing.

You can find out more about the book here.

If you'd like to get your hands on a copy, I have one I can give away.

To make it interesting, lets run a competition!

To enter -  just send me a photo.

It can be of anything you like, but you will score extra points if it features chickens, or howies clothing, or both.

The winning image will be posted up on the blog!

Beautiful Weekend

The weekend was great. (if you like hot sunny days, anyway)

Some of us from the office went out for a meal and some drinks on Friday night, and then we went for a walk on the beach to watch the sunset.

I love long summer evenings, and I'm just hoping this isn't the end of summer as well as the start...
