  1. I really enjoyed the progression on your homepage. Who drove most of the design decisions, you or the client?

  2. Thanks Kevin. I was lucky, the client liked everything I did …. didn’t change a thing.
    On the last-but-one image (on the link), I was happy with the colours I’d chosen but they needed more playing around with … to get the elements to read clearer. I still had 24hrs before I needed to send it off, so I sat on it overnight and with fresh eyes the following morning was able to get better contrast and balance by jiggling the colours around.
