A Fitness Expert Writes…

We at The Raygun know plenty about fitness, and have seen them all come and go, but we’re not necessarily the fittest people you know (anyone who’s seen us out and about can testify to that). We do, however, know a few people who are into this, so we gave the latest Tracy Anderson release […]

One challenge facing marketeers trying to push their catalogues and wares is how best to design the generic ad; the one that plugs […]

No Trouble In Stores

Back in a previous life, on a now defunct magazine, we had this great idea to have a regular monthly feature entitled “this month’s dead bloke”, to let store managers and retail know whose titles they should be bringing to the fore in store, following their untimely demise.

Convention dictates that we rarely look at these things when they’re given to us; it always seems a bit rude – we are there, after all, to talk about forthcoming product, not what free stuff we […]

Long Live The Queen

The day The Raygun speaks to ITV Studios global arm’s director of  operations Fiona Maxwell sees her relaxed and happy – and she has every right to be.

Playing The Numbers Game

Jim Caviezel is tired, jetlagged and waiting to finish promotional activity for The Prisoner, the new version of the much-loved TV programme currently airing on TV  and is due on DVD on May 3. He’s still finding time to speak to The Raygun as part of his British promotional activity which is supporting both the […]
