There have been some changes with the website. The colour scheme has been lightened up considerably to give a lot more space to some of the elements. I often advise clients to try to avoid being too text heavy on their sites. It is only fitting I take my own advice. The lucid orange remains.
I've spent a lot of time working on values, vision and mission. What it comes down to is "Build better websites". Yes, but what does it all mean? The website is the front door for many businesses. It serves many purposes. It is a brochure for the business. It should explain what the business is. It showcases a business. Often it is a shop front. Sometimes is for customer service. Every business is unique.

I often get asked about the fake Latin that appears on development versions of sites.
Why not use English? It’s there to demonstrate how the various text elements work together. That way the client can see how the paragraphs compare to the headings, how lists look etc.

I normally work at home. There are a lot of advantages. The main one being there is no commute to the office. There is a lot of freedom. I can work when I want. I could do a couple of hours in the morning, the go off and do something else and then come back and finish off in the evening.
