Banging, drilling, the sound of glass breaking... as my new office window goes in this morning. Not just my office window but the windows (minus 1 as it was too big) for the back of our house, in time for winter. The one window I really wanted replacing and it's 20mm too wide, hey ho, we can cope for a few more months, we've waited all these years! I'm working from my kitchen today and possibly tomorrow so I'm out the way, with Buster (my terrier) curled up in his bed near me to keep him away from all the...

A little interlude this morning alongside the usual work. There is no getting away from it when you work from home and I think it's really important to get up very regularly from my desk and stretch my legs, so I'd might as well use that time well. It's a Shopify day and one of design ideas for a few people, so lots of thinking going on... I quite like days like this. Having the time to think about the way something will look, checking with the client to see if they like it too, I find quite relaxing. I...

A second family member on crutches in 4 months. No sooner had my son returned to work after his ACL op and my husband is in having a nasty leg straightening op. It's a slow recovery. I'm spending my days sat with headphones in listening to and glancing over at all sorts of documentaries and make over programmes of all sorts, while I work away. Making endless cups of tea and coffee, lunches, dog walks and general 'are you ok?' I shout from my desk. Quite a bit of design work on and the completion of a few projects with a...

What better time to write a new blog post? while I'm waiting online for a Shopify expert. I'm really enjoying the new design work I'm getting in, I absolutely love creating logo's and coming up with colour schemes, whether from scratch or based on a clients ideas. This weeks success story is the new logo for Bunniikids, a sub brand of Bunny and Clarke, more info on our branding page on the website. Although I love colour and cuteness, I also like bold and dynamic and traditional, I'm not a one trick pony! But give me colour any day. The...
