  • It’s National Coding Week 2016

    Posted on September 21, 2016

    Posted on August 26, 2016

    Before I start this post, I must first apologise for the vitriol that is about to spew forth. John, our Content Team Leader, will have attempted to edit much of the hatred and anger from this but, if he’s caught all of it, the word count won’t be sufficient for a blog and you won’t […]

    Posted on February 12, 2016

    I recently wrote an article about how you become a web designer, and how you get started in the industry. However, one of the seedier sides to dipping your toe into the world of web design is the ‘fluffed up’ CV. Before you can get a job as a website designer, you need experience. You […]

    Posted on September 13, 2016

    Those who spent last Thursday and Friday poking about on Twitter, and who have a keen eye for typos, might have flinched at a particular trending topic during those two days. It was one that spawned from sloppiness, developed through irony and rocketed thanks to pure scorn. If you haven’t spotted it yet, we’re talking […]

    In a world saturated with adverts, stories and statistics, and with the internet only a mere click away, there is a real danger of consumers being overloaded – trawling through so much information can be monotonous.
