The Index: Issue #18

Welcome back! Our pick this week has to be the Prime Video brand refresh. It’s stunning work by the legendary folks at Pentagram.

The Index: Issue #17

Welcome back! Our pick this week is the “Twentieth year of WordPress, Designed” article. We’re WordPress super fans, so may be biased though 👀

The art of the demo

Nothing enhances written content quite like a well-crafted demo, or collection of demos. They don't have to be complex either — in fact, it’s better if they’re not complex. The most important thing is that good quality demos can help people really get what you're trying to explain, especially if reading isn't the most effective way for them to learn.

We hope you enjoy this issue’s collection of delightful links. Our favourite this week has to be Chris Coyier’s “Other People’s Busted Software is an Opportunity”, which highlights the importance of stability (and user-focused design).

In this post, I share some really positive feedback from a recent client that we're really proud of.

The Index: Issue #13

It’s lucky issue #13 of The Index this week and our focus is websites that really push the boundaries to produce a truly creative and interactive experience.

The Index: Issue #12

It's all about restaurants and food places in this issue. Food is a great context to get super creative and these sites do exactly that.

The Index: Issue #11

In this issue, we're focusing on more minimal websites because you certainly can do less with more. Consider it a palate cleanser after a few issues of very animated websites.
