2nd worst shop front of all time

I took this pic of this shop front / side in my local neighbourhood. It’s easy to see when you drive past.


Startup blog prize (free book) for anyone who can tell me what they do without calling the number (or knowing someone who works there / digging around).

I’m all for single minded simplicity, but if we are going to go to the effort to paint the brand and phone number, it’s also handy to have a tag line which tells people what we do.

    From the name I would say they are either:
    (1) Witches who cast spells for you…
    (2) responsible for dubbing films and removed cusswords (i.e. “get… hecked…”

  2. Steve Sammartino · November 27, 2008

    (1) No
    (2) No

    Nice try Dr Dre

    We’ll leave it ‘open’ for now

    Long shot, but supplier/manufacturer of nuts/bolts/drivers? (hex nut?)

  4. Ross Hill · November 27, 2008

    Is it a recruitment shop?

  5. Nigel · November 27, 2008

    Is it a trendy graphic deisgn place?

  6. Steve Sammartino · November 27, 2008

    Nigel – No sorry. Nice try!

    Well , some crowd sourcing company ?? Crowd sourcing / crowd funding / collaborative or partnered stuff??? Hex – something 2 do with the bees??? So… something 2 do Collective work force .. or even “social networking” stuff ??

    Prabhu – some nice guesses there but none are correct.

    They make hexagons. Specialising in orange ones….

    Some good guesses all round.. and this has clearly dragged on enough….

    They work in IT Solutions. Fixing up peoples computers at home and for small business.

    I would never have known if I didn’t go in and ask. How many people wonder this but never ask…. In fact they could have even got some business from ‘me’ on occasions.

    Proves awareness matters a lot in the early days of any business.
