SEO Job titles through the ages

Tom Critchlow: Business Card

Today we increase the number of Critchlows working for Distilled from one to two, with the addition of Tom Critchlow. (What is the collective noun for Critchlows? - I vote for thicket).

So whilst coming up with Tom's job title we came up with this list of job titles through the ages..

Initially I was going to have the business cards evolving over time as well as the job titles, but my skills aren't quite up to that but I'm sure you are all impressed by the coffee stains! #Search Engine Job Titles
