The form website and blog are now live, so go check it out at www.form-office.net.
We’d like to take this opportunity to wish the guys over at form; a great years trading and we look forward to seeing what their new website, blog, business cards and brochure (which will soon be hot off the press), will do for them on 2011.
Keep up the good work.

So the Sunday Times has gone solo and now has its own web presence entirely separate from the Times and which can only be viewed fully if you are a subscribing member. Yet another nod to the movement of the digital age and a world of iPad filled train carriages and departures lounges.
From a design point of view though, the new Sunday Times site is safe. Its a very well structured, white space content portal style site. White is quite rightly the chosen color for content rich websites that people are going to be spending a lot of time reading and so is naturally what you would assume the Times to use on this newly launched site. I mean when was the last time you picked up a book that was black with white writing in….. exactly. However on the other hand, where the user is not reading why not be more daring, make more of the imagery and move away from white space?
I think the graphic design department at The Times is great and they produce some really good quality work. But I would like to see some engaging solutions used throughout websites like this in the near future. Especially in areas such as photography, the Sunday Times Magazine always has a great world photography section. A digital archive of all the photography ever featured would be great to see.
Every so often you’ll be searching the internet and you’ll think of a website you’ve never been on and you just don’t know why. You get excited at the prospect of what a global super powers website that somehow has slipped under your radar is going to look like? Then you enter those letters one by one into the Google search bar click search to reveal a website that just isn’t as good as it could be or should be. I’m not saying that Saatchi’s website is archaic or that it looks like it was programmed in ms-dos, but I just couldn’t help but feel disappointed with script errors popping up every time I clicked somewhere, a somewhat bare home page and a nasty looking navigation panel on the left of the screen that drops down. This is’nt a blog slagging off the design or the designers behind it, just merely saying from the biggest advertising agency in the world I think I wanted more… Fair comment?
If you want a helping hand Saatchi, you have our number 😉
