Design, Theory & Ramblings

Off to a flyer in 2017… What I’ve been upto

After having a relatively steady December after we decided to get all of our work done before the new year, 2017 has got off to a flyer.. With a mix of new clients and existing clients wanting things re-designing I have had a busy few weeks and I must admit, I absolutely love it. There is nothing better than getting my hands on a brand new website. I love the creativity and process which comes from starting a new design. Here is a short list of designs I have done since the new year..
