    Wow, I hadn't seen the PNG Air rebrand before. Great use of local art style.

    Handy book - I still have a previous edition (2nd I think?).

    Always interesting to see case studies like this, thanks for sharing Luke.

    Did you consider adding basic Ts&Cs overviews at any point? Good for accessibility and building trust. For example:

    Personally I like it, but the colour palette fails contrast checks. Test it with the Wave browser plugin.

    User Experience - a term created by one of the Silent Generation. Pre-boomer.

    Try explaining UX to literally anyone outside the field. Same response.

    Ah, the classic "Please forget all our past transgressions and see how cool and hip we are now" rebrand.

    On a serious note, despite loving a branding, I'm far more interested to see how their services and internal culture change rather than what suit they're wearing.

    I've used NordVPN and am currently using ExpressVPN. Both are solid with desktop and mobile apps that work fine. I only switched for a pricing deal.

    More often than not, I would say they are certainly expected to be the same person in most companies.

    Many companies conflate the role of UI, UX, and content designers far more often.

    3ddc84 on #fff = basic color contrast fail

    Great start.

    Hmmm. If you were a 3D design studio with a reputation for being edgy, I could maybe be persuaded to get it. But as a site for a web agency that wants to attract clients? No, I don't get it.

    A typical journey I foresee:

    What am I supposed to do? Click the red dot. Nothing happens. Click under the red dot - a new page! Nothing there. Hmmm. Scroll… ah-hah! Content! A contact form. Oh. Leave the site.

    And your work page (when I found it) doesn't explain the projects, or tell me about how you work -which most of our clients want to know - it just takes me to the sites you built. I didn't realise that with the first one until I tried to go back.

    It does feel very 2005 in both style and content. Sorry.
