Do you need that web font?

October 9, 2014 by

Web fonts are a fant­astic addi­tion to a web developer’s arsenal but just because it’s there doesn’t mean you have to use it.

Getting Hosting Sorted

April 1, 2012 by

Host­ing, much like air and water, without it we would shrivel up and die, and like water going to the wrong sup­ply will make you sick. Actu­ally the ana­logy above doesn’t really work because I want to talk about the respons­ib­il­ity of host­ing rather than choos­ing a sup­plier. Host­ing is one of those awk­ward require­ments of […]

Excel­lent new prints just arrived in the post for the office wall. I found these lovely Star Wars/Day of the Dead illus­tra­tions by John Kar­p­in­sky on Etsy. Look­ing for more art­work (we have a lot of wall space), there’s cur­rently a selec­tion of prints and posters by Tara McPh­er­son, Jeph Jacques (Ques­tion­able Con­tent) and The […]

Updated Social Media Brochure

January 23, 2012 by

Our new Social Media bro­chure can be down­loaded by click­ing right here (pdf). I’ve listened to the feed­back from the last incarn­a­tion, which was mostly “I fell asleep about page 8″ and “does it really need THAT much detail”. We’ve tried to give a good over­view of the ser­vice without going into more detail than is […]

Simple Parallax with jQuery

September 4, 2010 by

A quick demo of using jQuery for par­al­lax. This example just cre­ates a nice visual effect but it could eas­ily be con­ver­ted for more con­struct­ive pur­poses but I’ll leave that up to you. Par­al­lax (for the sake of this post) is the effect whereby things at dif­fer­ent dis­tances move at dif­fer­ent rates, for example look­ing out […]

Adding Facebook Like buttons to your website

August 16, 2010 by

We’ve just launched the new Shinytastic web­site which gave me a chance to exper­i­ment with some new tech­niques. The most inter­est­ing has to be the addi­tion of Face­book like but­tons to the web­site (down in the footer). The abil­ity to dir­ectly integ­rate your web­site with a social media site is going to really change how […]

Claires Court’s Sixth Form Gallery

August 6, 2010 by

We just had a quick fri­day lunch to cel­eb­rate Tim’s birth­day and had a look at Claires Court’s Sixth Form Art Gal­lery in Maid­en­head town centre. Hugely impressed with the qual­ity of work, the pho­to­graphy is espe­cially out­stand­ing. It’s work a look, check out the Claires Court web­site for details or just wander into Maidenhead […]
