The Big Word Project is redefining words. Search for your word and link it to your website. Your website is then the new definition. Simple. Want to know more?

The end of boring gift ideas has arrived…

So it’s your dad’s birthday, or better yet it’s Father’s Day (as it’s upon us). You don’t want to get him the usual slippers or socks, so what other presents could you go for?

Fresh Trend

Fresh Trend have redefined the word presents with their website/blog about unusual gift ideas. “We’ve got the latest cool stuff in gadgets, fashion, entertainment, design and a bunch of other unique gift ideas.”

Good Morning Ulster

BBC Radio Ulster

We had a spot on the local radio station BBC Radio Ulster this morning on the Good Morning Ulster show with Wendy and Seamus. We were only on for a few minutes but the radio spot seems to have done the job as we’ve had a lot of local websites on today. Thanks guys!

Listen to us

You can listen to the show here (Thursday’s show and we’re on in the last 5 minutes. This will probably only stay up for 1 week).

Fifty Thousand Shirts

We came across a fantastic project recently called ‘Fifty Thousand Shirts‘.

On Monday, May 19, one week after the quake, reports surfaced estimating that 50,000 lives would be lost in this tragedy—our vision is hope. One by one, fifty thousand hand drawn tally marks create the “x” on your shirt, each one representing a life that has passed, and connecting it with a life that has committed to help rebuild. Your shirt is a symbol how one person, multiplied 50,000 times, can do something amazing.

Each shirt will be individually numbered and all involved will have their names recorded on the Wall. You can be a part of something important. You can be hope.

Fifty Thousand Shirts

The project is a great idea and for such a great cause! The site is really simply designed, something we really love here at The Big Word Project. We snapped up some shirts straight away, check it out below. We would encourage everyone to check out the site and sign up to this great cause!

Television rules the nation

Here’s a few words which have been redefined to popular tv shows! We’re particularly big fans of a few of them so thought we would share them with you all.

Skins [Skins]

Skins

Skins revolves around the lives of a group of 16–19 year-old friends. A fantastic ‘no holds barred’ show which is one of the most realistic representations of the messed up lives of today’s youth, and also a personal favourite of ours. Series 2 has just finished and it has been revealed that they are axing the entire cast for series 3. Bold move but we’ll definitely be tuning in!

Shameless [Shameless]

Shameless

Shameless is another brilliant show which is side-splittingly funny and tragically dark at the same time. Some amazing characters and twisted plots make this another favourite of ours. Series 5 has recently finished and filming for series 6 has just started, we’re looking forward to seeing Frank and the gang back in action.

Afterworld [Afterworld]

Afterworld

“Welcome to Afterworld on Channel4, a tale of a world trying to recover from a cataclysmic event that has changed life on Earth beyond all recognition. 99% of the population has vanished and all technology has been rendered useless. Russell is going to have to go through hell and back if he is going to be reunited with his family 3000 miles away.” It’s available online so check it out!

BBC Switch [Switch]

Switch

BBC Switch is the brand for BBC content aimed at UK teenagers and pre-teens, from ages 12-16. There’s a variety of television and radio shows available on their site. We recently got to see around the headquarters in London courtesy of a mate of ours, Barry (aka Barryoke).

Banzai [Banzai]

Banzai

Banzai is an amazingly funny show which features characters like Mr Shake Hands Man, who maintains a handshake with a celebrity for as long as possible and Lady One Question who poses as a celebrity reporter, asking a single interview question and then staring silently at the interviewee. Viewers are invited to bet on various things throughout the show. It’s a great show and you can watch some classic episodes on the site.

Sky Showbiz [Showbiz]

Showbiz

Sky Showbiz is your one stop shop for all that showbiz news.

Word of the day

Television - the broadcasting of a still or moving image via radiowaves to receivers that project a view of the image on a picture tube.

Hello Finland!

Interactions now points to Nordkapp.fi, a design company based in Finland. Nordkapp ‘create contemporary brand interactions and innovations, seizing on those special moments that happen in the constant dialogue between people, brands and technology.’ Quite a mouthful you might say but these guys do everything from interaction, graphic and web design to interior design and branding.

Nordkapp

We particularly like the navigation on their site. It’s one long page and you jump to the different anchored sections, but it’s less of a jump and more of a smooth, romantic boat ride. :-) Their design is really plain, just black and white, but it’s really effective. You can tell they are a high class company, even before you get to their showcase. Some impressive work in there, check it out!

Kiitos Nordkapp!

Word of the day

Interactions - the act or process of interacting.
