Acid FC

Post by jackgg » 03 Feb 2019, 22:47



Saw this on Twitter today and have seen mention before of Acid FC in the programme as well I think. From looking at their site it seems that they are a football clothing company (some of the t-shirts currently reduced from £50 to a bargain £25 Image) - so seems a bit odd that we are promoting them.

Just interested what our relationship with them is, are they designing the programme for us or anything more? And why does it need to be done by a company - I'm sure we have individual members who would love to help...

Hopefully someone from Comms committee can shed some light.

Probably need a wider discussion at a meeting soon about how we partner or work with brands/companies.

I know as part of Matchday committee for example we have tried to choose a food supplier who can benefit the community by donating proceeds or food to local causes - this was part of the decision-making process, we asked the various suppliers to answer how they could help the community. So maybe a good starting point for this discussion is always trying to use companies that help the club and/or community in the best possible way? Not that I'm suggesting Acid FC don't benefit the club and/or community - I don't really know much about them, hence the post!

Acid FC = Ed, the member who designed basically 99% of what we produce on really (extremely) tight schedules and for nothing else than a mention on programmes and tweets sometimes.
He has been designing ALL programmes, finding designers/illustrators for covers, found the printer and sometimes managed to redesign some pages and sort out content which was a mess to do.
He also helped us finding a scarves production company fitting with the requests of workers rights the Comms committee had.

I suppose that's enough for an answer?
