New Cherryleaf logo – can you guess what it will look like?

The more sharp eyed visitors to the Cherryleaf Web site may have noticed our company logo has almost disappeared off the site. That’s because we have just signed off on a new logo that will be revealed shortly.

This gives the opportunity for a little bit of fun – can you guess what our new logo will look like?

Thank you

We’re celebrating our 10th anniversary today. Thank you if you have been a customer, employee, job candidate or supplier during that period. If you’ve not worked with us yet, then hopefully we will in the future – thanks in anticipation of that.

In some ways, little has changed since November 2002. Organisations still need to deliver clear and simple content their users and staff love. We still deal with user-focused content for software, medical equipment or IT hardware, as well as policies and procedures. Our services have remained essentially the same, as well: recruitment, content development, consulting and training services.

Over the last 10 years, probably the biggest developments have been using the Web, video and wikis to deliver information. Now, with analytics, we can measure the value of documentation more accurately.

Looking forward, we’ve a few things planned to coincide with our anniversary. Some, such as hosting webinars, have already been launched. Others should appear shortly. We seek to challenge and improve ourselves, to work with more customers. So our toast today is: to a successful future.

See you at Technical Communications UK Conference 2-4 October

We’ll be at Technical Communications UK conference next week. Ellis will be speaking on the 4th October (at 11.00) on “What does the iPad 3 mean for Technical Authors?”. The Technical Communications UK conference includes speakers from outside the technical communication profession, with the aim of bringing a new perspective on communicating information.

A successful conference is as much about the people you meet as the presentations, so it will be fun mixing with all the other delegates.

It does conjure up images of someone stroking a white persian cat in their mountain lair – do bloggers and tweeters really have a great deal of influence on their community?
