The Fairy Tale of Burscough Bridge

The Fairy-tale of Burscough Bridge is a scheme developed by Liverpool based design agencies BCA Landscape, Smiling Wolf and Woodscape back in 2008 with the brief to ‘enrich the sense of identity’ of our local village.

The scheme enabled the redesign of a selection of pedestrian areas and the creation of new small interlinked squares. These areas were animated with a range of bespoke furniture, paving, artworks, lighting, signage and a village clock. The village clock now stands proud as the centre point of the village. Its design consists of photographs of local people etched within the tower of the clock.

Do Your Research

If you are stepping out of your comfort zone, and possibly even out of your time zone, you need to have as much information about your potential market locations as possible. If you don't already have a base knowledge of the country you aim to trade in, do some research. Educate yourself about the culture, language, currency, laws, and regulatory requirements in order to pinpoint and prevent potential risks before they occur. This is necessary if you want to commit to becoming an international business.

Face for Business


How do you decide on your company name? Do you use your surname? Another name that’s personal to you? Or do you brainstorm ideas relating to the nature of your business? It’s obvious to see where some company names come from, but not so for others.

While a clever and witty name can impress the type of clientele you’re trying to attract, a name that bares no relation to your business can leave potential clients wondering. Although you can change your company name, it’s not really giving the best impression.
