Getting organised in Graphic Design
If I were to write a list of top tips when designing for printed items, it would look something like this:
Google have launched a new way to display search results on the iPad.
Being a key user of mobile browsing, I am happy to say that the new design is spot on. I no longer feel the need to squint while navigating through my search results. The page is clean tidy and uses white space in an effective way.

When a new London venture were looking for a website design agency, did they shop local? No, they did some research, allowed four firms to tender and finally awarded the contract to Jordan Twigg Design, a Birmingham based company.
Skoosh Environmental Services, was a new company set up by Karen O’Neill, providing the London area with a variety of services including commercial, specialist and domestic cleaning, washroom packages, pest control, rubbish removal and clinical waste removal. The brief for the website was for it to be fresh and clean with a professional feel and whilst initially it was planned as a standard six page brochure site, it soon became apparent that a larger site would help demonstrate the full range of services offered.
Social media is a part of everyday life for many of us now, and by the fact that you’re reading this post shows its power. But how we all use it differs, depending on your agenda: brand building, seo, social contact or entertainment.
As a graphic design business we use it to keep track of software developments and industry news, as well as building a network of contacts and potential clients. We all come across people who will influence us and people who will annoy us so just for fun I have come up with a few social media animals.
Over the last 18 years Jordan Twigg Design has built and maintained some very long customer relationships, but how and why have these worked for us?
Graphic design agencies cannot survive without clients, but for some it is a never-ending quest for the next client, whilst for others it is a balance between maintaining the client base they have and periodically adding to it.
