    cow and gate re-brand project

    Software scmoftware- Did your college ask you to conduct a study of the company before you started your design? Did you think about who buys this stuff, and what influences their decision to buy? Did you think about the ways in which the current design isn't up to scratch, the age of the...

    The music biz, social media and your business

    Yep- I pay £9.99 a month which is a bargain compared to my old vinyl junkie days. Considering how high my horse is, I'm not sure I'd pay if it was very much higher- anything past £25 a month would probably put me off which is sad really. As far as a business model, social media behaves in the...

    Desktop or Laptop?

    Our plan is to use desktops for work and now I'm beginning to think an iPad is the way to go for pitches and presentations. I would die without my laptop because I'm all over the shop and I work from home, my designers rarely leave their desks and when they do, I don't want them to be working...
