I decided to try a different approach with the fifth Test. For the first ti...

Chiller: A BMX-style moped from Saint Petersburg

The debate rages on whether electric motorcycles are better than petrol-powered ones. Meanwhile a group of mad scientists in Saint Petersburg have side-stepped the argument completely, by building two near-identical bikes; one petrol, one electric. And we honestly don’t know which one we like more. Meet ‘Chiller’—a cross between a BMX cruiser and a moped, with the option of two different drivetrains. It’s the work of Blackmarket Project, who’ll be offering each variant as a limited production...

generational marketing

Epoch Strategy Director Alex Murrell wrote a fascinating piece a couple years ago on “The Ageism in Advertising” and the knee-jerk way that marketers obsess over younger generations. Alex cited that only 5% of advertising spend is targeted to adults aged 35-64, despite the fact that over 50s hold 80% of the wealth (in the UK), make up 60% of car sales, 58% of travel spending, 50% of health and beauty sales, and 49% of all FMCG sales. He concluded that “the over 50s are one of the largest,...
