What is .London?
We have a thing for the .london suffix, it’s pretty awesome.
And here’s the bottom line on Dot London domains. You can get a really good one, because most of them are still available. If you want to own HOORAY.COM you’ll have to go back in time to 23rd July 2003. If you want HOORAY.CO.UK you’ll have a bit of an easier job, only having to bend the space time continuum to 22nd March 2004. If you want to buy HOORAY.LONDON you’ll just have to be quick because it’s still available on the 26th August 2015.
Dot London can make for some kickass brands.

If you want to get a single word .com, you’ll have to either fork out a fair few thousand dollars, or make up a new word. Literally the entire dictionary is taken. Has been for years.
Pretty much ditto for .co.uk names.
If you go for a Dot London domain, you’ll be able to get a word that describes what you do. And is memorable.
Ok, so that one’s a premium and costs a bit extra, but in terms of branding, recognition, memorability, it’s a pretty good name.

Supper was born from one of those moments that ends up becoming internet folklore. Late one evening, over a glass of wine, I was trawling the internet, looking at delivery options and finding that what I wanted just wasn’t available. I had been away from London for over four years and was shocked that the best restaurants in London were not an option for home delivery. Why not?
After several months of digging around and asking friends, colleagues and random strangers at parties, it became apparent I wasn’t alone in wanting this. So, Supper was created.

We’ve always held lots of events, and at them we meet lots of like-minded creatives from the local area. Lots of important people from the local design an advertising community began asking us to help them work on projects.
