Having spent a happy afternoon setting up my new Pinterest account (more of what this is about in a moment for those of you saying “what on earth is Pinterest!”) I have been pondering on the whole phenomena of social media and the massive changes which have taken place in only a few short years.

How we communicate and, more importantly almost, what records we leave behind for future generations, have both changed so momentously and with such speed that is must represent one of the greatest social changes ever known to mankind.

For those of you still wondering what Pinterest actually is, I would say to go and have a look! (www.pinterest.com/emmycollageco ). It is like a global online picture pinboard which anybody can add to or view. You can find inspirations, quirkyness, ideas and much much more. The whole of life is there in pictures, from the weird and whacky to the practical and everything in between.  b2ap3_thumbnail_Screen-Shot-2014-04-16-at-16.30.12.pngBut this really did get me thinking (in a somewhat Luddite way!) of how will future historians and social chroniclers manage to research our lives today? From Roman times, it has been possible to search through letters, diaries, musings and art to delve into peoples’ lives and attitudes and build pictures of those who are long dead. Where will this information now be found? Will our blogs still be in the ether in a hundred years time? Who  will be still looking at Pinterest and what will it tell them in the year 2093?!

Whilst I feel that there may be a major issue for historical chroniclers, more importantly, what about our own personal histories - the stories of our families and our forebears? Our memories and heritage remain key to our identities and it is vital that these are preserved for the generations to come.

How better to keep these family stories and memories alive than by reverting to a marriage  of the good old fashioned medium of print, with modern software which enables us to create digital photographic collages using photos old and new. These unique memories will then be there for your children and their children to enjoy for years to come.b2ap3_thumbnail_Nicola-RobinsonBlack-paint.jpg

Emmy Watt set up ‘The Collage Company’ in 2010 after finding a gap in the digital photographic market. Instead of creating photo books, which end up on the shelf along with long-forgotten photo albums, they wanted to find a way of getting all your favourite photos out on show and still produce a quality product. Taking their marketing and design experience they have taken the traditional collage idea into the 21st century...
