August 8th, 2013
In which we vainly try to explain why it's been eight months since the last time we posted to our blog.
We often tell our clients that a company blog is a great idea, just so long as you have the time to keep it up-to-date. So here goes, our first blog post for eight months! We should probably explain ourselves.
January - March
We kicked off 2013 with a few trips up the M1 to Leeds to meet with the great team at Leeds Mencap. They were looking to refresh their website built on Google Sites. Whilst it didn’t look good the team had become accustomed to having full control over content so we needed to balance creating a fresh new design with ensuring the team could update things quickly and easily. We designed them a clean new site and built it in ExpressionEngine.
At the same time we started on developing an ambitious HTML5 app for another client - it’s yet to be launched so we’ll keep quiet about that one for now.
March to June
This part of the year was where things got a little busy. First off we were creating a logo for Good Morning Beautiful - purveyors of stylish dressing gowns. We also designed and built a new Perch-powered website for ValueFinder UK alongside helping Beyond Tabletop look their best for World Tabletop Day.
June to August
We’ve worked through the crazy heat of a London summer - apart from a week of remote working from the countryside when it all got too much! We’ve just finished a new website for our friends at Kampala Film School in Uganda and brand identity and web design for new venture, Mile 91. As August isn’t finished there’s plenty of time to fit some more design work in too.
We’ve also been working on an ongoing basis throughout the year with a couple of large clients: designing ads for Tube carriages, apps for iPhones, landing pages for startup incubators and MailChimp templates for your inbox - that’s been filling in all of the gaps!
So yes, we’ve been busy - just not busy updating our blog. Don’t let it put you off though, we’re always keen to hear from prospective new clients. We love designing websites, creating logos and visual brands, designing apps and most other design tasks in between so drop us a line and we’ll take it from there.
