Company Updates

  • In the lead up to the Holiday Season (yes, we are already thinking about it...) this month we decided to dedicate October to Health & Fitness. We've had a number of educational pop up events, as well as weekly exercise sessions such as Street Gym, Yoga and Lunchtime Walk Clubs.

  • Last week we launched our latest TV ad campaign. What do you think? Do you like it as much as we do?

  • As part of the Photobox Group, we have recently introduced our new philosophy on Diversity & Inclusion!

    We are lucky to say that for a group of businesses built around personalisation, we’re a very diverse bunch. Together with our sister brands Moonpig, Hofmann España, posterXXL GmbH and Greetz, we have employees from over 51 nationalities, we’re proudly based in five countries and our customers come to us from all backgrounds and walks of life. That’s a really good thing!

    But we’re still eager to do even more to ensure #PhotoboxGroup is a place where everyone can turn up to work as their authentic self, being valued for their unique contributions to our family.

    This is why we are rolling out a number of initiatives to attract, recruit and progress the best talent, we're launching a women in leadership programme and we continue to develop our culture to be more inclusive and work to raise everyone’s awareness.

  • #AI can help you create your wedding album, but can it really be emotionally intelligent? Rob Scammell from Verdict speaks to our Group CTO Richard Orme to find out how hashtag#Photobox strikes the right balance when using AI to create something as personal as a photo album.

    Can AI Be Used to Improve a Customer's Emotional Journey? - Verdict AI | Issue 5 | August 2018

    AI that tells your story with you, not for you The underlying concept of Photobox's AI is for it to tell the customer's story with them, not for them.

  • We've just completed an EPIC data migration project. We moved 5.7 billion photos on to the cloud. If you were to print all of those photos, you could cover the Earth's surface 1.25 times. That's right, that's 9 petabytes of data. It's because we are the guardians of Europe's largest consumer photo database.

    Can AI really be emotionally intelligent?

    By Vaughn Highfield Is emotional AI really the next frontier for artificial intelligence? In Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, author Philip K Dick questions the notion that an artificial brain could ever be capable of understanding emotion. Is it possible for a machine to really ever have an emotional connection with a human if it can't empathise or express emotion itself?
