3 years ago I wrote a blog post that suggested 2013 was the quickest year ever known to man, well, I was wrong - 2016 has absolutely flown and the popular saying of ‘doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun’ is spoken out loud once more.
You all know that we are a Creative and Digital Studio in Manchester. But have you ever visited our studio? We think it's a pretty awesome place to work, the interior is 'delicious' and the people I work with are just bloody brilliant. Here's a look inside our studio ( our home from home ).
"My time spent at the Made by Shape studio had been a great experience for myself. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to work on their Shape Christmas project this year, with it being such a well received project by everyone and that it was revolved around the theme of Christmas (and I must admit I absolutely love Christmas, but then again who doesn’t)."
It’s that time of year again where we start looking for christmas jumpers in the run up to Santas arrival. Some people buy xmas jumpers for 25th December, some for office parties, some for everyday fashion, and some for a special works party or night on the razz. Whatever your situation or occasion - don’t hide it, christmas jumpers are ace and should be worn with pride.
You can’t wear it all year round, but you need to have at least one in your wardrobe, so I’m here to help.

Watch the new John Lewis Xmas advert for 2016 everyone is talking about. But, did you know it’s not the official TV advert?

If you’re somebody looking to choose a web design agency in manchester, a web design agency in london, a web design agency in cheshire, or a web design agency anywhere in the world - it may be worth knowing who I am, what we offer here at Shape and what I’m currently working on.
I often get asked the question, can we handle a job of ‘that scale’ or do we have enough staff to work with ‘that client’. And it’s very easy to give a Yes or No answer once I’ve received a project brief, and/or had a meeting with the potential client. We have worked with large brands such as Blackberry, Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, Fox Home Entertainment, Morson International and L’Occitane. So this does showcase that we have the experience of understanding brand guidelines, working with in-house brand project managers, and having meetings with ‘really important people’. It’s great in theory to think about the financials, and accept any project enquiry - but, What if that job is too big for the agency? What if they don’t have the expertise? What if they miss the deadline? The project crumbles, and the financials won’t be worth it as the agency will have harmed their reputation and/or have to refund some money as they didn’t deliver.
