This week I’ve been helping our latest Createful intern, Tom Wickham with his portfolio site – ironing out HTML/CSS bugs and generally hurling about unsolicited design advice. He’s done a great job so far, and is currently undergoing the trials and tribulations of numerous job interviews to secure his first tentative steps on the career ladder (oh boy, if I knew then what I know now!).

As we discussed it further, an illustration came to mind, of a boat builder. “Tom,” I said, “if you asked me (a professional boat builder for the purpose of this discussion) to build you a boat, would you be more interested in what tools or materials I used, or whether the finished vessel was going to stay afloat?”. “Good point, I guess not” he replied.
MySpace has re-launched and it has only one focus! The one focus that they were known for, making Music social! Justin Timberlake, now part owner of MySpace has executed what could be the beginnings of a MySpace revival. The launch was special, JT special! He announced and released his comeback single, via the new MySpace which was a strategic plan to get people’s attention back on to MySpace again to explore what new site can do.
The new layout is nothing like before; it’s clean and very modern. It has the feel of the Windows 8 Metro design influence. With a mixture of social media sites together, resembling the likes of the music station element from Last.fm and the design simplicity of Pinterest. Could this be a winning format?
Fairline are famous for their luxury motor yachts, and we were delighted to be asked by them to design and develop their official iPad app. The app works as a showcase to explore their beautiful boats. It allows you to explore the full range of their Targa and Squadron boats, view 360 tours, large image catalogs, deck plans, and the latest Fairline news.
