A breath of fresh air

The brief was to create a brochure website for the well established firm of solicitors, Marshall Ross & Munro. I concentrated on the idea that as they have been around for so long they have helped clients through many generations. It had to look professional but also friendly and welcoming.

Busy bee

It's been all go for designjr lately. At the beginning of the week I was in Cupar checking out some details for the tactile map I'm creating for Fife Society for the Blind. I was also lucky enough to be part of a panel hearing pitches from some of the UKs best design agencies for the branding and website design of an up and coming charity.

Rounding off my very busy week a spot of lunch at design great Charles Rennie Mackintosh's Willow Tea Room.
