Double trouble for outdoor lovers

Let no one say the British poster industry is lacking in original thinkers. Only the outdoor sector could have come up with an idea as original as its payment and com-mission system.

However, just occasionally the odd hint of plagiarism creeps in. Either that or the Natural History Museum’s event sales staff only got as far as the poster companies in the Brad directory.

For how else are we to explain the following coincidence:

An evening of champagne at the aforementioned museum’s newly opened Earth Galleries, hosted on October 3 by Maiden Outdoor to launch its new Apollo poster package.

This is followed on October 23 by a “social evening” – with only a short speech to celebrate 60 years of More O’Ferrall. The venue – the stunning new Earth Galleries at the Natural History Museum.

Well at least it’ll be easy to find second time round.
