We Blondes have recently received a couple of our latest publicity photos for Ordnance Survey. We are really pleased with them and can’t wait to see the rest. To celebrate our advancement along the corridor of fame (and to tone beautifully with our blue Ordnance Survey jackets), we elected to change our logo from orange to blue (cyan to be precise). The fact that we have a blue logo at all is down to Mr B2 who designed it in the first place, we also have pink, black, green and purple. We can’t wait to see our pink Ordnance Survey outfits next year!
Somebody pointed out to us that our new blue logo looks a lot like an Ordnance Survey map symbol. You know the ones, blue ducks (nature reserve), blue beer glass (pub) and blue moons (you don’t see those very often). We think this is a true and would like to propose to Ordnance Survey that they adopt our logo and place it strategically onto new maps. We would, of course, be fussy about where it was placed; Dartmoor would obviously be the best place to start but we are willing to expand to the Isles of Scilly, Exmoor, the Isle of Man and the Scottish and Welsh Mountains.
The question remains of course, of what the Blonde symbol should mean. We did a bit of Blonde-storming and came up with a few unsatisfactory ideas including: ‘rainy camp spot’, ‘cuppa rock’ and ‘silly river crossing’. None of these seemed quite right but I think I now have the perfect answer. Dear Ordnance Survey, please could our symbol mean, ‘Girls Can Go Here Too’ and please could you put it at the top of the highest mountains, in the deepest, darkest forests, on the most deserted beaches and in a few mysterious lakeside pubs!
Now that really would encourage the ladies of Britain to Get Outside!
