On May the 25th 2018 GDPR becomes/has become the new European law for businesses and organisations that store or process personal user data. This post is from the perspective of what you need to consider when storing and collecting data from your website users.

The object of GDPR is to bring back more control to the individual about how their personal data is used. This includes the ability to change or withdraw their personal information at any time. Now that detailed personal information is stored electronically, it’s easily transferred due to hacking, leaks or unethical practices. GDPR covers hard copy as well so be sure to consider anything held also in this form.

I’m sure we’ve all had those train journeys where we are subjected to a vocal human boom box sharing their conversation with the entire train. This morning I had that very joy but it did make me consider this environment in relation to how we communicate through campaigns and marketing messages. There were lessons to be learnt from the megaphone passenger.

My experience this morning homed in on three things:

  • Volume
  • Awareness of the environment
  • Clarity of information

Very few items of clothing come as loaded with cultural significance as the football shirt, and the signifiers shift depending on the team and the year the strip was released. I’m sure there have been a thousand theses on the subject. However, when Liverpool FC unveiled their new shirt a week or so ago it had a design feature which felt a little different and more considered than the average shirt. It boasts a chequered pattern with differently sized squares that is “inspired by the red and white mosaic formed when supporters on the Kop hoist aloft their Liverpool flags and scarves on a matchday.” It’s a sweet nod to the supporters and their significance that feels particularly resonant considering the Hillsborough disaster investigations.
