New Certificate

I took a test at the beginning of January - I flew through it and passed. But, what was the test? Why am I writing about it? It was a test from Google Digital Garage about web design and SEO. I did the 40-hour course in three hours and...

That Was December

I thought I would start writing a series of monthly round-ups so that people can keep abreast of what has been happening at Andrew Backhouse Design. After all, a blog is a great way of gaining Goody Points for SEO - Long-Tail SEO benefits from regular...

Confrontation In Design

Fair enough - I admit it, I am running out of things to do. I am sleepless tonight. I admit insomnia strikes every now and then (three times a week?) but it is normally because I have something to do the following day. The excitement of things...

Andrew Backhouse has moved office! Yes, I am talking about myself in the third person but then I am talking about a project I have seen grow from an idea in a passive fashion, too. I do not know if you remember my work for Jem Henderson at...

D&Ad Membership

After sitting on the fence for some time, I took the plunge and applied for Full Membership of D&Ad - the global association for creative design. I am now a member and have all of the associated perks - but is it worthwhile? I'd like to...

Redesigning The Parish News

I had a bit of a troubled nights sleep last night - no real big deal, it is something I have to live with. During the time I was awake, I spent it redesigning The Parish News. In fact, it was a complete re-branding. The...
