Gordon Lamb Charity Football Match

Last night I was lucky enough to be a spectator at the Gordon Lamb Charity Football match - in aid of Ashgate Hospice.   It was a fantastic night and great to see so many familiar faces... some that I've not seen for quite some time!  There was an estimated 300+ spectators at Chesterfield's newly built B2net Stadium, and over £550 was raised with more ££'s to come in!

A big thank you to Stuart Pearce - Group Marketing Manager at Gordon Lamb (the guy who taught me all I know)  for letting me share these pictures.

Well done to everyone involved, I'd also like to say a special well done to 'The Lambs' aka my friends Sam & Rachel, who are going to kill me for sharing this photo with the world... but I think you'll agree, they look fabulous!

In full bloom - Tineke Floral Designs

These are not just flowers... they are fragrant, simply exquisite Tineke flowers!  If you've ever been lucky enough to receive a bunch you will know exactly what I mean!  Recently Bimbo Design has been doing quite a bit of marketing for Kerry at Tineke Floral Designs, above is an advert that I designed for Save the Date Magazine.

Magazine advertising can be an expensive part of the marketing mix, so make sure you do your business justice and have your advert designed for you - yes it will be an additional cost but trying to cut corners and design an advert yourself can be more damaging to your business than you might think!

Who ever said "never judge a book by its cover?!" In our industry we know that all new clients do judge your company by its branding and marketing package, so it is essential to get the package right!  If you would like any help or advice on your marketing give Bimbo Design a call on 01246 855 222 or email

Now back to the flowers...  Due to popular demand, Kerry is now able to dispatch exquisite Tineke bouquets nationwide - click here to visit the website or pop in to the shop!  - and tell Kerry I sent you : )

Add some spice - Chilli Butler

At Bimbo Design we have been busy making a few tweeks to the Chilli Butler website.  New packages have been added and the galleries have been updated with stunning photography by the one and only Simon Revill Photography  .  

I have been lucky enough to work with John at Chilli Butler for a couple of years and even luckier to see them in action at a number of corporate events that I have been part of.  Wether you are planning a hen or stag night, corporate event or even a BBQ in your own garden, add a Chilli Butler (or hostess) to keep your guests entertained and the glasses topped up!

Here is a picture to brighten your day... phew, it's getting hot in here!

Let them (me) eat cake!

For those of you that know me, there is nothing I love more than cake - and when that cake is for something special, like a birthday, it tastes that much better!.  So as yesterday was my birthday, I decided to slip away from the studio for a couple of hours and indulge in a little treat... bliss.

Just look at this delicious little secret I have discovered in the heart of Chesterfield...  Serendipity - Tea Parlour & Gift Boutique. 

Sit back and relax in the parlour with a pot of tea and a hot buttered crumpet.  Or why not browse at the gifts, including vintage style jewellery, gorgeous shabby chic nik naks, handbags,cards and homeware..but if sweets are your thing, stop by and pick up a bag of old fashioned traditional sweets... scrummy!

For more information contact Sarah on 01246 555749 or visit the Tea Parlour & Gift Boutique and enjoy a pot of tea and cupcake or 2!

Chasing Payments...

We all know that cashflow is crucial to any business, no matter how big or small.  With cheques eventually being phased out I decided to take the bull by the horns and leap into the baffling world of card payments... aaarrrgh!  For months I have hunted around, trying to source the best company and been bewildered and confused by so many of them... that was until I came across Accept Cards.

What a refreshing company!  No babble or hard sell, just genuine advice and helpfulness - and their charges are some of the lowest that I have seen.  So I thought I would spread the word to any business wanting to offer the facility of card payments to their customers.  I have now been taking card payments for four months and have actually found that clients pay promptly and it is their preferred method of payment... result!

So if you want to be able to take card payments I can thoroughly recommend Accept Cards - click here to visit their website.

Shhhh... it's been a little quiet!

Well firstly a BIG apology for the radio silence from Bimbo Design, my little blog has been neglected lately.  One of the main reasons is that I dared to sneak a quick holiday... which as a business owner is quite a scary experience!  

Since starting the business in 2007 i have lived and breathed design, helping many businesses flourish and worked harder than I ever imagined possible.  In under 4 years I have grown my customer base to just over 500 clients, which, when there is only one Bimbo has been an achievement that has exceeded all my expectations - which leads me to my next piece of good news...

I am thrilled to tell you all that from June 1st I will have a new member at Team Bimbo!  Charlie will be joining me as my apprentice.  I will be working closely with Charlie, developing her raw talent and ideas; very soon she will be managing her own clients ...... eeek! how exciting!

I hope you will all join me in wishing Charlie a long and successful career at Bimbo Design.
