Fergal Keane

Fergal Keane
Lovely portfolio from Fergal Keane in a realy nice gift wrapper. Great use of Slideshow pro but let down slightly by the cliché icons for the different galleries.
Clean code (no serious errors) degrades great but the important bit, the portfolio gets lost because its flash. I would recommend Geoff Stearns’ FlashObject method for embedding and providing alternative content as a solution.

Identify Yourself

Spoiltchild Logo
It realy is the hardest design job. For the last few months we have been designing and exploring different logo ideas for the Spoiltchild identity. Each direction was eventually scrapped and the process started over again. One became the logo you can see above for spoilt.Designing for yourself is the hardest job and to be honest we were just about to approach someone outside the company who could hopefully approach the project objectively. And then... for 5 minutes yesterday evening this happened...
and everyone involved just looked at it and said yes! Our new Identity.

Irish Rail

Irish Rail
How can they possibly think that this is an improvement over this? Not that the old one is any great shakes but that only means that they had plenty of room to improve the interface. This is a big step backwards in my view.
