The Diary is used to companies sending in old junk, but Yorkshire marketing consultancy A Vos Marques has gone one better, coming up with some 175-million-year-old bric-a-brac. Company head BÃ©nÃ©dicte Windle (a good, solid Yorkshire name) says: “You can’t beat a good design. This one lasted over 300 million years. Ten years ago, I designed A Vos Marques to offer affordable marketing solutions, tailor-made to your requirements. Don’t let your marketing plans get fossilised.” AVM will send fossils to the first 50 people who enquire about its services. Palaeontology buffs wishing to get their hands on an ammonite should visit avm-branding.com. Or pop into the Natural History Museum when the guard is at lunch.
