Getting a BAAD name for Pyramid Art Centre


Years ago we got a letter addressed to Judy O'Bard and we laughed.

Berated for our lack of marketing skills, we tried to get a consistent identity and build on it. Some publications have told me that they are not too interested in accuracy, so it is always a privilege to have our work selected by the AJ - we know how hard you work for accuracy. But seeing our new name in the Pyramid Art Centre article (AJ 13.3.03) we became 'disappointed of Hebden Bridge'.

It's dog eat dog out here - westeight (who they? ). Ahmm (polite cough? ) - I'm sure you wouldn't do it to them, so if there's a next time, we're not Baad, we're really BAAD.

Space was tight in the article, but would you please credit here these wizards from our Pyramid team: Graham Collingridge, Robin Hudson, Lucas Köhler, Jim Loftus, Guy Smith, Howard Smith (no relation! ), Joe Stott and Matthias Waibel.
