April 2020 Has Started

April 2020 has started: this is a recap of the month of March 2020 by Andrew Backhouse, the freelance digital designer in Harrogate. I write a monthly recap of shenanigans at the end of every month – this is good for long-tail SEO and is also a good way of taking stock. Metaphorically, of course. Spring is Springing and the blossom is starting to appear.

One of the big things that happened this month was that I managed to redesign the front page of the Bias Harrogate website. If you need contemporary fashion, head there.

I wrote about the redesign on my Blog – you can read the article HERE.

Another project I completed was a minor redesign of the Harrogate Community Radio website – it even has a new logo! Here is the new logo:

The main thing that everyone is dwelling on, and let’s confront the elephant in the room, is Coronavirus. Sports seasons are cancelled, the Conference Centre has been turned in to a hospital and the vape shop I frequent has been closed as part of a wider lockdown. People are not allowed to meet up in groups, go out to a pub (closed) or the cinema (closed) and they have to stay at home – globally, millions stand to die from the virus. It is a terrifying time.

I wrote a blog article the other day about tech solutions for creatives during the coronavirus pandemic. Uptake seems to be fair to middling on that – it is a well written piece that I stand by.

But, alas, the pandemic is forcing a lot of businesses to close, some permanently. These are worrying times for Andrew Backhouse Design – if I can be honest.

So, things are a bit ‘on hold’ as businesses prioritise assets and make sure they are safe – some of the businesses I am working for have battled on and will keep on going with home deliveries. Others are folding. It is a scary time. All I can do is wish you and yours the very best; stay safe, isolate and wash them hands!
