Back to School Collection

Here at Urban Sophistication Designs we have been busy working on our new back to school collection. If like me your fed up with your child coming home with the wrong book bag, backpack, instrument or even uniform then this is for you.

Each item is designed to be attached to your child's belongings making it easily identifiable to your child and whats more as no two pieces are the same, you can be sure your child will always have a unique item. All items in this range can be personalised with your child's name, initials, school details or anything else for that matter. The back to school collection will include zipper pulls, keyrings, book bag markers, backpack ribbons and instrument case markers.

Whilst we are excited to be launching this new range very soon, we also have a dilemma. Here at USD we are struggling to come up with a name for our new collection which is where you guys come in.

We are launching a competition to come up with a name for our new collection. Everyone is invited to come up with a name for our collection. The winning entry will be the one picked for our new range and the winner will receive a complete set from the collection, personalised if they so wish.

All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning is simply submit a name for our new collection. This can be done by Tweeting us, Facebooking us, emailing us at or sending us a text on 07904217986

We look forward to seeing some of your entries, good luck

The Wonders of Modern Technology

Now, I've never been the type to understand the ins and outs of modern technology. I'm more the kind of gal who knows what I need to know to get me by and just a bit more but even I have to marvel at the wonders of modern technology.
I used to dread the school holidays,armed with my pen and notepad I would always aim to do as much work as I could whilst keeping an eye on the kids in the park, at the beach, softplay etc but even then with emails to reply to, a website to monitor, sales to process, stock to purchase and everything else there was always a limit to what I could do.
The last mobile phone I had was brilliant, it alerted me to all my emails, twitter notifications facebook updates amongst other things. So when my upgrade was due I told the salesperson that I wanted something that could do all the things my previous mobile had done and maybe a few new 'teicks'. His suggestion sounded more like another laptop than a mobile phone!! I chose to take his advice and eagerly awaited the arrival of my new phone. When the phone arrived the first thing I did was link it to my email and twitter accounts and facebook business page. After a few days I was amazed with all the things I discovered my phone could do;it automatically remembered the people that I regularly called and texted, it recognised a link between my work email account, my twitter and facebook accounts and would suggest that they hadn't been updated in a while and what really blew me away was the reminders that could be set in conjunction with my website like items on sale, when offers should end etc. By far the two most impressive functions have been producing word documents and using my phone as a wireless wifi hotspot making it possible for me to connect my laptop to my phone's wifi and work virtually anywhere using the internet.
So now USD can operate from any location around the UK at any time!
Whilst I will never fully understand all the marvelous things my mobile can do or the ins and outs of modern technology and the information super highway, I am grateful that I can compute the day away and write this post while travelling up the A2 on our way back home after a day spent working on the sandy beach of Margate, thanks to the wonders of modern technology!
