With much surprise on the 3rd of September, Android, the smartphone operating system created by Google announced a naming tie up with the KitKat chocolate wafer.
It kind of appeared from nowhere and the BBC reports that no cash changed hands, until this point the Google was calling 4.4 “Key Lime Pie”. The variations for Android have been named alphabetically after sweet treats and desserts, with Cupcake, Froyo and Ice Cream sandwich as examples.
But what’s more amazing is, and this is from my little Graphic Design site here in Derby, not your typical place for breaking tech news, but in line with the trend set by the KitKat brand arrangement, the next version of Android will be called “Liquorice Allsorts” and will feature a Bertie Basset inspired mascot!
This is great news for the Liquorice brand, originally from Sheffield, England. So look out for future packs of Allsorts with Nexus 7’s sandwiched between layers of coconut fondant!

Fascinating imaginary news from Google I’m sure you’ll agree!

It was refreshing to work with an experienced, professional graphic designer who quickly understood what we wanted to achieve at Scoops Diner. We provided the bare bones and Kieran fleshed it out to create a spectacular end product design. Aside from the graphic design, I found Kieran to be a warm, genuine, humorous and down to earth chap who pro-actively gave positive and constructive advice on other aspects of our business. I have already and will continue to recommend Kieran to other businesses for his design services work.

When the ReST vulnerability hit the news, I was happy that my hosted websites were already safe.
At some point in the discussion of a new branding project, the client will almost always ask what files they expect to receive. At first, I found this an odd query, although perfectly valid, my assumption was alway that I’d supply every file they’d need, why would I design a logo and do anything less?
Lets cut to the chase, I’ll assume you’re reading this because are looking for a logo?
Good, because designing logos is what I do.
