Those of you who know us will already realise that we’re not normal.  Normal is average and we would hate to think of ourselves as average.  

We aim to be extraordinary in everything we do, whether that’s designing an exhibition stand, providing outstanding customer service or giving witty replies to silly questions.  We sent a questionnaire around the office to find out a bit more about everyone here, including which cartoon character they’d like to be.  We maybe should have done it after going to the pub to loosen people’s tongues…  we might just try that next time.  For now though, here’s some of the replies we got:
