What Makes Good Afternoon Tea?

We here in the Ugli Office love a good afternoon tea, and so in celebration of Afternoon Tea Week, we thought we’d write a little appreciation post. Scones, cakes, pastries and teas – how could we not celebrate?

Heard of Silicon Roundabout?

“Fuhgeddaboudit” as Donnie Brasco would say.

West London is fast becoming one of the best creative clusters in London. The economic development and regeneration of West London has made it a better option for businesses to migrate to. Considering it’s cheaper and boasts amazing transport links to Central London and surrounding areas, it’s a wonder that West London has been overlooked before now.

It is not just the smaller businesses that are setting up shop here; with the likes of eBay and Paypal in Richmond and L’Oreal and Coca-Cola in Hammersmith, West London ...

What (and Who!) is Vojo?
Vojo came to life initially in 2013 as a research project within the Escuela Superior de Diseño e Ingeniería de Barcelona, a body associated to the Universidad Pompeu Fabra (UPF), with a view to generate personalised patterns for travel, adapted to social, behavioural and trends-guided influences in the use of technology in general and social networks in particular.

Can you imagine a world without social media? We can’t!

Why Pinterest?

It’s not just the fact that everyone and their mother is on it, and we are simply being brainless sheep. No, no, no. Pinterest is the place to be if you want inspiration for home décor, what to buy, and keeping track of what you like. We think that Ugli has a perfect spot in the Pinterest-sphere.
