On 14 October 2004 the two word concept developed by Peter was announced in an article in the MEN, with a photo of him. The phrase he came up with was: "original-modern". AOR says: Coming up with a two-word catchline to sum up a city is not easy, but used in conjunction with the right marketing campaign, it could be very successful.
