Iconic Icons

As you may or may not know I am a massive fan of Macs. I’ve been using an Apple computer for over 9 years now ever since I had enough of constantly replacing PCs that would either fail or get clogged up with virus or dll errors. Since that day I have never looked back. […]

A Whole New Year

Colours and their importance

Colour is the fundamental design approach to reach and grab your target users. It’s key in a design’s non-verbal communication and creates the all important physical and mental reactions of the user. Colours, if used well, can instantly convey the right tone of the site as well as convey key important messages to the user. […]
