Live-Feed

Create a live-feed of photographs for your event.

11 June 2012, 11:17

Display images in a live feed using a smartphone, a few apps and a Mac. A couple of people asked me how it was achieved so I thought I’d write a quick post on it. There’s nothing big or clever here, just a few smart apps and a bit of tweaking.

Mobile Web

Your Website on a Phone

27 April 2012, 15:33

Before I point the finger, hands up, I’ve done it too.

Yep, along with the hoards of a new generation of mobile phone users, whilst walking down the street, I too have almost bumped into the bloke coming the other way because I’ve had my head down starring at my smart-phone.

70's Cars - the future!

12 August 2011, 10:09

Maybe it’s the fashion, maybe it’s the desire to reduce fuel use with aerodynamics or maybe it’s shared platforms for cost savings , but new cars do all seem to look the same.

The relief is of course found on Flickr, and surprisingly in the style dead end of the 1970’s. Which isn’t such a dead end after all, but joyous madness going by these pictures.

QR Codes

13 July 2011, 11:46

They are nothing new (first presented in 1997) but I’ve recently begun to see more and more QR codes about the place and actually using them. In the Quad exhibition I visited the other week, you could snap a photo of the QR code and get an audio guide of the exhibition. It’s a great development of the gallery audio guide, where you might usually have a headset and select the number relevant to the artwork you’re looking at.

LogoCrunch

12 July 2011, 10:32

If you’re in any way interested in new technology, you will have visited the TechCrunch site at some point I’m sure. Set up in 2005 this US based site offers news and analysis on all things tech, start-up profiles, product previews and web site analysis.

TechCrunch quickly grew to become a very popular site with 4.5 million rss subscribers. The big and controversial news in September 2010 was that AOL was to purchase TechCrunch, which it did in January 2011.

The End of Print?

1 July 2011, 16:46

It’s a question that’s been asked for a good few years now, with the increasing accessibility and availability of technological solutions to consume media that traditionally would be provided by newspapers, magazines and books, how long does print have to live?

Over the last couple of weeks a number of news stories have moved the debate on a step, including the latest edition being the final one in print for industry magazine Design Week. Almost 25 years after it’s first edition the publication is going web only. There is naturally a lot of talk on the web about what it means for the UK design industry, of which DW has been a large part of for quarter of a decade.

Logo Project Delivery, What Files Should You Expect? »

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?


Logo Design in 2017 »

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.
