One of the perks of having a blog is that every now and then people will give you stuff for free in exchange for a write up. For me, it is usually something digital; it's electronic. The person giving it away spent all of his time making the first one and the others (more or less) made themselves. Recently though, I was given a pen crafted by Regal Wood Designs. This pen was made specifically for me. The casing is made of Bamboo. The shape fits my hand and writing style. The hardware is silver and not too flashy. The top is equipped with a stylus that works perfectly on my iPhone and iPad. I liked this pen so much, I decided to buy another one to give away.
Well, the moment we've all been waiting for is finally came last week. (By we all, I mean the people in my office.) We launched some of our favorite sites last week. These are the ones that I mentioned a couple of weeks ago. As a graphic designer you need to avoid ruts. Cookie cutters are great for deserts, and mass production is great for cars, but when it comes to creative expression and representation this very rarely works for that. One way to stay on your toes is to accept a wide range of clients. That's why we create websites for doctors' offices all the way to websites for plantations. In so doing you will end up emphasizing and utilizing different design techniques. Even sticking with the same design principles, you will end up with vastly different websites.
So, today I would like to showcase three webdesign tip by looking at these three websites. Take a look at the websites we've done for an Outdoor Retailer, a Law Office and a Gym.
