In this article we are going to talk about some of the major web design inspiration sites we frequently use to keep our creative tanks filled up so we can carry on producing fresh, creative and interesting work that our clients love.
The imagery a site uses really does have the power to make or break things. There are countless examples online of companies, big and small, that made changes to their sites images and achieved a greater conversion rate and higher overall sales as a result.
As a soon to be graduate, going on placements is a great way to gain valuable knowledge, and experience. You learn how a studio works and all the extra bits that go with that, that you would not otherwise see as an outsider.
Here at Shape we are always looking for new, bespoke projects to get our teeth stuck into. We are all young, energetic, creatives trying to find ways of develop our skills.

With a new year comes a new way of sharing our designs with our clients, We have decided to start using a website called InVision.
We are offering a unique opportunity to celebrate our growth in 2015. Have you ever thought about getting a website? but you don’t know where to start? or you don’t have the budget for it?
From starting my 2015 not too well, getting under-par grades in my first few briefs at University, to getting a job at Shape, This year has had more ups and downs than a rollercoaster.
Dribbble is a very easy and convenient way of sharing our progress through different design jobs we are doing. Unlike any other Online Portfolio Wesbites, Dribbble is a site where Designers and Design studios post ‘Ongoing’ projects, from small snippets of design elements like button styles, hover-overs, User-Interfaces, or even small Gif’s.. it gives a Design Studio like ourselves a convenient, quick, and easy way to keep our followers up-to-date with what we are doing day-to-day at Shape.
