Biggest news of the year so marketing was mad busy with graphics, web, PR and social.

New solution = new website look

Welcome to PortLog Pro

We’re super excited about the launch of the powerful new version of PortLog – PortLog Pro.

To celebrate we worked on a new website look.



See it in situ here on the PortLog website.

New in August: TikTok

MarTrust is a b2b and b2c business – we have corporate customers as well as crew/seafarer customers.

For the latter, we’ve just done our first video designed for re-posting onto TikTok.

Here it is (on Vimeo – 31 seconds!).

August AI

We’re very much into the benefits AI can bring for not only our solutions but also in Marcura marketing.

Of course, we use ChatGPT and similar tools to ensure our copy is as good as it can be.

We’ve used AI to produce videos – see below.

Most recently, we’ve used AI to produce more compelling images for our stories.

It took quite a lot of iteration but here’s the end result (it goes with a current LI campaign).


From July:

We’ve been testing out some marketing AI tools.

Here’s a new video we’ve just finished featuring video AI – from Synthesia.

It’s a really good tool and we’re delighted with the result.

We’ve run “Dragon” (at the top of this page) for a few months.

I wanted a more digitally looking visual for “Digital Transformation”.

Why a second creative attempt? Well, Digital Transformation…’s ABSOLUTELY 100% what we do!

See our LinkedIn page for how we’ve replaced Dragon.

Archive – April 2023 – The DA-Desk deck of benefits

This is a just-launched DA-Desk campaign.

I wanted to show all the many benefits of DA-Desk, within a theme.

The concept was built around a deck of cards – there are many benefits/ cards – see here.

Special (creative) focus on…. MarTrust

I love these two pics.

Seafarers just setting out on their careers.

And is this a card or a cake?!!   Ok, it’s a cake, but it’s pretty cool, right?

My favourite 6 Marcura graphics

#1: FinTech meets Maritime = MarTrust

#3: The people and teams we Serve

#4: Solutions smile
