I am delighted to launch my Facebook page today. It will be an important part of my marketing, and a good chance to experiment with a view to aiding my clients with their pages. Having worked with clients’ Facebook pages in the past while working for design bureaus, it is a great chance to re-acquaint myself with all things […]

Logo Design Love is a book written by the designer David Airey. Essential reading for designers as a guide to creating iconic brand identities. It is also a fascinating read for anyone in business. His blog at www.logodesignlove.com is also well worth visiting.
One of my favourite magazines is Computer Arts. It’s tagline is ‘The essential read for the modern designer’. Which is exactly what it is. It is filled with inspiration, techniques and fascinating industry features. I also read it’s sister magazine .Net, which keeps me up to date with the latest trends in web design. While […]
