We’ve kind of officially launched this site now and so far most people have had only positive things to say about it. We’ve actually had a lot of really good feedback from the people we’ve asked and it’s definitely making us address a few things that we hadn’t thought of. I think we’ve perhaps got a bit of work to do on driving people to use the sub menus a bit more and perhaps to drive people to the blogs (but if you’re reading this then i guess something’s working).

It’s not all been plain sailing. It would appear that we sent an e-flyer out today, to people (announcing the new site) which coincided with me making a fatal error with a bit of code resulting in a few miss-aligning page elements (as in a 400px gap between menu and content) - not very professional I know, but we soon resolved it and it’s a lesson in always expecting the unexpected when it comes to CSS, as well as testing, testing and further testing before launch.

Thanks to everybody that’s come back with comments, I know we were asking fairly pointed questions to you, but people seem to have really thought about the site functionality and usability, not just the aesthetics which is good to know.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Supercool design agency e-flyer graphic

We sent out an email today to say Happy Valentine’s with this truly halloween imagery. It kind of follows on from the christmas card theme and shows off what we’re actually capable of with a camera and photoshop if we put our minds to it. Try not to have nightmares.

Coffee heaven

We had a quick wander down to St Paul’s Square at lunchtime to try out the coffee at Saint Caffè (we designed their promotional literature and menu board) and it really is very good. The coffee beans are supplied by some Italian brothers (who know their stuff apparently), and they’re freshly ground on the premises. The beans that is, not the Italians ...

The interior has been decked out in an understated, classy kind of way and is a far cry from the sandwich place that used to be there. I hope you’ll excuse the not-quite-in-focus photography but I had to show this cute heart Lucie put onto the Latte – such a lovely touch. I like it when people consider little details like that.

Next time, I think I’m going to treat myself to one of the petit fours ... or perhaps a macaroon or two ... or a nice big slice of chocolate cake ...
