Gone Fishin'

Fri, 13 Mar 2015 11:02:38 +0000

Sooooo, we're currently in the process of redesigning our trusty website. ("About ruddy time," we hear you say. "Cobbler's children/lack of shoes", we retort...rather embarrassedly.) Anyway, as part of this much-needed overhaul, we're going to take some time to consider Reaction's place within our wider business. During this time, we'll be posting infrequently. So please subscribe to our RSS feed to be notified the moment that we publish something new. (Don't forget to subscribe to our newsletter too!) In the meantime, if you have any feedback, we'd love to hear it.
