In October 2012, we launched four primary school websites in the Dawlish catchment area (blogged about here). Since then the school websites have thrived, regularly adding posts and images, updating their calendar events and pages. Other primary schools in the Dawlish area were so impressed with the websites they decided it was time to revamp their sites too. Of course we were thrilled by this and in mid 2013 met with two local primary schools – Kenn and Gatehouse, as well as one secondary school Dawlish Community College. (more…)

Personal Projects – Illustrated Children’s Book – Scissor Story

Scissor Story Book Design

As you know we are big fans of personal projects. We think they allow designers some design freedom and stretches those creative muscles. We’ve previously blogged about the Lost Poster and Charlie’s Nursery Rhyme. Well, this next personal project is a book my mother in law wrote for Steve and his brothers when they were little. Very briefly, the story is about a small town called Bladesville where the various scissor families lived. One day Andrew Household goes missing and his neighbours Steven Sharp and Matthew Shears go to search for the missing boy. Needless to say they found him stuck in some brambles and the whole of Bladesville had to come and snip him out! (more…)

Westcliff School, Dawlish, Devon, website design

A client mentioned in passing the other day that they are so keen to crack on with new projects for 2013, they’ve forgotten what they’ve already achieved in 2012. They said it’s so easy to forget what you’ve achieved when you’re striving for the next goal. I thought this was very true, so this post is dedicated to some of our own favourite projects from 2012.

Children's illustration book design

Back in June I was honored to become God mother to my best friends Son – Charlie. So far, I have made a range of gifts for this wonderful (and very spoilt) young man – I knitted a cardigan, crochet a hat, blanket and booties, baked his Mum plenty of cakes whilst he was in her tummy and I’ve just finished my latest creation for Charlie… his very own nursery rhyme book!
