philosophy:
to create clean, functional web sites that communicate a strong, simple message through the use of elegant design and an attention to detail

inspiration
:
we draw our inspiration from the natural world, art and literature
in particular:

the colours of the mineral kingdom
(this page has the lilac of plumbogummite & the green of pyromorphite)

prehistoric cave painting
the work of eric ravilious
ancient and epic literature
the work of lewis carroll
and any other idées trouvées

aversion
:
"corporate blue" and template web sites
flash gimmicks that add nothing to the appearance or usefulness of a site
front pages that take forever to download
overemphasis of SEO; if a site is relevant it will get there!
spelling mistakes and bad punctuation

in addition
:
we apply all the above principles to our graphic design for print
