Following on from the mammoth project that was the new City of London site came the brief for a redesigned City of London Police site. With a head packed full of lessons-learned and a raft of new techniques I was itching to use it was back to the drawing board and out with the trusty pen and paper.
Glancing at the portfolio section of my site you'd be forgiven for thinking I haven't been doing much work lately, but you'd be mistaken because I'm pleased to announce that after eighteen months of blood, sweat and digital tears we launched the beautiful new City of London website earlier this week.
Of all the trends, technique and fads that come and go in the world of web development the one that fascinates me most is responsive design. It’s an idea that encourages web designers to ensure their creations work on any device, be that a web-enabled 52” LED TV, an out-of-date smart-phone or an even older feature-phone, or the latest and greatest iPhone, Samsung or HTC.
The City Bridge Trust have been a client of ours for some years now and their website was in need of updating when they approached us during the spring of 2010.
The City of Sport scheme is the brainchild of the City of London's Sports Development team and funded by the Mayor of London (not to be confused with the Lord Mayor). It aims to promote health and fitness in the City in the run-up to the Olympics in 2012.
Guildhall Art Gallery is a small but perfectly formed art gallery that's a part of the Guildhall complex and can be found in the centre of the square mile.
