Will the real Jane Porter please step forward

The power of the press was proved again last week through a scam by a would-be Design Week hack. Mere mention of our esteemed organ and a feature on how to win business had at least two design groups telling their secrets to one Jane Porter.

Sounds more like a devious trick from a less than ethical design group rival than the tactics of an honourable journalist.

So if you find yourself being grilled by a Jane Porter, remember you were warned – and call us with the details.
