Amber Hodgkiss Website Design

When ex-Hollyoaks and Grange Hill actress Amber Hodgkiss got in touch with us regarding a new website, we knew exactly what Amber would need to showcase her talent. The result at www.amberhodgkiss.com, is an engaging content managed website that allows Amber freedom to add text, pictures or video, whenever and wherever she is in the world at any time. We couldn't resist showing Amber's fantastic modelling shots in a larger than life showreel on the homepage and I'm sure you'll agree the pictures are beautifully shot. The website also has the added feature of being responsive so scales perfectly on smaller web devices such as tablets or mobile phones so Amber will look beautiful from just about everywhere..... ...

Logo and stationery design...because image matters...

With so much competition around in these difficult times, presenting the right image for your business has never been so important. Well designed and printed stationery could be the first step in winning that new client or contract - and may not be as expensive as you think. An attractive logo and business card is not only asthetically pleasing to look at, but can also be the first step in reasurring your customers that you are professional in every aspect of your trade. So many times we've worked with clients who have been using badly photocopied quotations, or cheaply produced business cards to promote themselves. At NW Design we can help give your business that professional look - an investment that could last for many years to come... ...

Google+ Authorship Part 1

With Google now dominating the internet the word SEO is ever more frequently used. I’m a firm believer that any company that “promises” number one spot in Google should be avoided. There are ,however, a few things that we can do to aid SEO and I feel that during 2013 we are going to really need to use Google+ and Pages to benefit our web presence. ...

Twitter – The #Hashtag Part 1

So like many; you ventured to the land of Twitter. It’s a vast world and can often be a little confusing to navigate at first. The #hashtag is one of the most important ways of organising twitter information. Anyone can make use of the #hashtag by simply typing “#topic” in a tweet. For demonstration purposes if you were to tweet about reading this blog post, you may say “Reading #nwdesign article on using #hashtags with #twitter.” So anyone searching for #nwdesign, #hashtags or #twitter would see your tweet. Once you’ve created a hashtag, other Twitter users can then use that hashtag in their own tweets to expand the conversation on that topic to a larger audience. Hashtags are created by Twitter users and not Twitter and therefore can be as general “#socialmedia” or as specific “#nwdesign” as desired. ...

This 1992 book was designed and produced in a former life for Rugby League Journalist Mike Latham. It was created in the semi-technical age, when computers were helping create the text and layout, but paste up and camera work were still an aspect of the design world.....those good old days of cow gum, drawing boards and darkrooms....sigh.... ...
