Newly-formed consultancy Philosophy has discovered a novel marketing method which aims to bring out the philosopher in all of us. It has issued blank flyers to all its contacts in the industry, including potential clients, to gather information for its database.

Philosophy will feature the cream of the crop on its website: www.philosophydesign.com.
