It’s a funny old Christmas this year isn’t it? At this time of year we’re both usually complaining ceaselessly about the supermarkets having had Christmas aisles since September and the prevalence of Christmas songs on the instore radio.

This year as we wander the streets where we live there are more and more Christmas trees up in people’s houses and with many shops being shut the Christmas aisles go unmolested and uncommented on.

Whatever side of the Christmas fence you sit on we hope this newsletter finds you well and that Lockdown 2 isn’t affecting you adversely. Remember that a little bit of self-care goes a long way, so treat yourself. Put the kettle on, sit on a comfy seat and have a read of what we have for you this month (only if you want to, obviously. We're not qualified mental-health professionals or anything…)

Cookies and Privacy – make sure your website is legally compliant

Do I even need a Privacy Policy and cookies banner on my voiceover website?
The quick answer is YES. You need both.

We know – what an amazingly dull read for a blog. Unfortunately, it’s an often-missed legal requirement. You need to know what the requirements are, and how to ensure you are compliant. Helen is here to help!

Working from home means we can do lots of small jobs for multiple clients, so how do we best convert our audio to the format the client has requested, organise out files for quick finding, store our audio for quick pickups and back our work up for future reference? Let’s take a look.

New branding and website for Abbe Opher

Specialising in sleep and mindfulness reads, Abbe wanted her brand to reflect the calm and peaceful nature of her reads. Helen created a website and branding that reflected the soothing, more-ish listening experience, creating a warm and safe visual style with a hint of bedtime story magic.

Abbe's project included:
• Brand Identity • Logo • Website • Social Media Templates • Business Stationery •

Abbe said:
"Capturing and distilling my brand's mission was fundamental to - and one of the most vital aspects of - Helen's branding exercise. Those words are bang on what I felt but couldn't articulate. I can't quite believe how professional it's looking and sounding. I just loved this whole process, from beginning to end. I'm soooo pleased!"
