With the Paralympics finishing this week, we've reached the conclusion of London's Olympic Summer. There's been questionable costumes, eclectic opening ceremonies, and some great performances by the athletes.
Earlier this month we attended the glittering Toast of Surrey Awards, after being selected as one of three finalists for the Creative Industries Award. We donned our best attire and headed over to G-Live in Guildford, to enjoy an evening of music, champagne, and lots of clapping!
Continuing our long-standing relationship with Talkmobile, we were pleased as punch when they asked us to re-design their e-commerce website. Late last year we began the process of designing a new site that would bring Talkmobile into the new digital age with a much cleaner and considered design.
In the depths of Winter, its easy to let your mind drift off to warmer climes. And what better place than California?
I've been to San Francisco twice; once when I was 4, and again in April 2012. All I remember from the first visit was nauseous taxi rides up and down roller coaster-like roads, so on my second visit I wanted to accomplish a bit more.
If you're a fan of film, video games and design, San Francisco is the place to be. Here's my top tips!

Its a new year, which means some big brands have unveiled new identities for 2013. One of the first to take the plunge this year is UK TV channel ITV1. Their current blocky, yellow branding was launched in 2006, and this year they have unveiled what they call a "unifying brand identity", to be rolled out across their various sister channels.

The other weekend I took a short holiday to Belgium's capital city Brussels. Being a new fan of Tintin, one of Belgium's most popular exports, the first stop on my site-seeing list was the Comic Strip Center in the business district.
Last month I headed to the Science Museum in London in search of the Google Web Lab. Having been told by Gemma about the cool experiments they had going on, I was keen to see some Sketchbots and Teleporters for myself.
When we re-fitted our studio this Summer, we had quite a lot of excess furniture. Rik discovered The Jigsaw Trust, a charity and school for people with autism based locally in Cranleigh, Surrey.
We decided to donate our spare desks and chairs to Jigsaw, and they sent us a cute artwork card to say thank you. We're pleased to hear that the furniture is being used in their Art rooms, and has gone to a really worthy cause.
