July 2019 sees the long overdue relaunch of the design dpi website after the six year hiatus. With that in mind, whilst working on the new web design the past few months, I've also been coming up with ideas for future blog posts.
Long story short, as ludicrously busy as I’ve been growing the business the last six years whilst working on every kind of project you can imagine. Add the birth of a wonderful little girl into the mix in February 2014, and well, you start to see the picture.
Late November prior to mothballing the office and going to Australia, one of the desktops here at design dpi was progressively getting slower and slower, crashing several times a week... even the infamous blue screen of death (BSOD) on rare occasion. It was becoming increasingly painful to work on, next to impossible at times.
Today saw the official launch of www.rebeccanewman.co.uk for the talented Yorkshire based classical-crossover soprano. The launch not only reflects a fine example of the type of website re-design we do here at design dpi but also the power of social media, in this case how to use the Twitter Machine properly.
This healthy obsession with animated GIF's was already alluded to in a previous blog post, Guess Web Design for a Living Was Inevitable. The Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) was first seen in the wild in 1987 as a simple 8 bits per pixel bitmap image with a staggering 256 colour palette. Well, it was staggering back in the day at least.
