    Doesn't really tell me anything about who they are or why someone with a cool product should get in touch.

    I recognise the logos but without a little more context it's like seeing those freelancer portfolios that have logos saying "I've worked for Google, Apple, MS etc" but with no more detail and it turns out they vaguely worked for an agency who did some email template mods for Google.

    I expect they don't need to be descriptive if you're in the market for investment as you might know them?

    It's alright, footy fans will always complain about loss of tradition and blah blah blah but this mark looks more versatile and modern than the last one and with regards to history etc - this is the 6th logo they've had since the 1930's so it's not like they don't rebrand on a relatively regularly basis (relatively speaking).

    Adding another "lovely site but the scrolljack on the text blocks was a bit confusing/frustrating" comment.

    Really love the video content and the overall look and feel though.

  • Posted to Sloped edges with consistent angle in CSS, Jan 04, 2017

    Work across devices (don’t care too much about IE)

    So casual a dismissal .. admittedly not a major thing as a straight edge as a fallback is usually fine.

    Pretty much every time I hear about something Drew has done I'm impressed. Not just because the work is amazing but the attitude and ethic behind it is so admirable.

    Great to see this sort of thing does happen in a world of indecent amounts of money being blown against the wall by startups who offer nothing.

    Spending time with family and chilling out generally.

    Had a lot of stress rushing to launch our main client Olympic Holidays site the week before we finished for the holidays so nice to relax and come back in the new year refreshed and ready to work on more features etc.

    I think it's important to split out shit stock images from good ones. There are plenty of libraries out there where excellent quality photography is available at a higher cost.
