Web Design

We can learn something from the Daily Mail. Yes really!

25 February 2013
Recently I looked at the Mail Online for the first time in a long time (honest) and while I would like to say I was immediately sucked in by fantastic site design, I was in fact drawn to a story about two students putting their haunted mirror on EBay (and selling the story to a national newspaper in the process). But I suppose that was the point. One nil Mail Online, one nil. But I ignored all the ‘crime, crime, crime’ and the celebrity...

What To Do When The Internet Is Making Us Lazy: The Power of Usability

11 February 2013
When researching for this blog, I learnt some interesting things about usability before actually reading any expert opinions.

bMobilized: Saviour of the Mobile Web or a Quick-Fix Solution?

14 June 2012
Image credit: iceviking, via sxc.hu In 1965, Jackie DeShannon declared that what the world needed now was love, sweet love. Whilst we’re not ones to question the role and importance of love in society, we’d argue what the world needs now is every website to be properly optimised for use on mobile devices.
