The writing’s on M15’s wall

Pssst! Furtive looks and whispers usually prelude any mention of M15. But the agency has now produced a nice glossy brochure to encourage high-flying graduates, (which naturally includes designers), to come and join the whispering passageways of the think-tank.

Graduate Careers in the Security Service reveals intriguing glimpses of M15’s secret world. It “stresses the exotic while admitting to the occasional mundane interlude,” according to reports.

Apparently the brochure has nice colour photos of M15’s Batman-like head office overlooking the Thames.

But no cash was available for a consultancy. “Oh no, it wasn’t done by a specialist, it’s just typed pages. We haven’t got the money for that sort of thing,” a Home Office spokesman let slip.

But he forgot to whisper.
