50,000 Visits and Counting


21 Jun

Just a quick one to thank everyone who has passed through our virtual, on-line doors since we went live with HoskingIndustries.com.au. We hit 50,000 unique visitors last night, which we feel is something to celebrate. Not sure what that equates to in page hits, views and the such. We reckon the number of visitors is a better representation.

We’ve probably been a little quiet around here lately. The work levels in the office have been phenomenal which has prevented us from posting anything but the bare minimum – which happily means Wicked Wednesdays FREE textures and samples from our feature car shoots, usually! – plus Ben is currently undertaking a course in teaching. Hopefully before the year is out we’ll have started posting juicy news tidbits and mind-pour rants like we did in the beginning.

Anyway, thanks again for stopping by and have a beer for us!

Oops, We Did it Again!


16 Jun

Yeah yeah, we know. We’ve missed two Wicked Wednesdays FREE texture posts in a row. Sorry about that!

Last week we were out of the office traveling north to shoot a stack of cars for some of Australia’s top car magazines and this week, well… we were processing them! We did intend to post up a set of textures last night, but alaz, time just got away from us.

However, we promise to have a set of six fresh new textures online for you next Wednesday, absolutely FREE and all for you! So be sure to stop by again next week and see what we’ve got for you.

Cheers,
Team HI.
