Great Looking Stories

Wiping the Sweat off our Brows

What we do know is that we mostly tried to stay true to our motto of sharing great looking stories with the odd ridiculous, random even, thing thrown in. And we also know that we ended up adding more Twitter followers to Creative Review’s existing Twitter fan base.

For those of you who missed it, or didn’t dare look in case, well in case it all went horribly wrong, here’s some of what we posted:
