When designing with photographs, or making exhibition graphics and banners, or sending a film to a competition, the large files involved can clog up email. This makes it difficult to share work with clients and printers.
So some time ago I discovered MailBigFile. Its cheap and easy to use and it has always worked. You just put in the email address to send to, browse to your Big File and go. It can take a while to upload but you can just carry on with other work or have a coffee while its sending. The recipient then gets an email inviting them to download the file. You can get an alert to see when they have downloaded the file.
There are other services like this too but I do like this one for its very simple process.
Dropbox offers 2GB free file storage to store your work online. It means that you can work from several places (as I do) including your phone, because it updates your work from whichever machine you’ve connected in and then when you use a different one its got the recent version stored in Dropbox.
You set it up by creating an account, then installing Dropbox on each computer you normally work from.
You keep your work in the Dropbox folder that appears on your desktop, and the program will automatically synchronise your files so they are the same on all the computers you use.
You can also login to Dropbox and get your files from any computer (eg internet cafes) and you can share files with other people this way too. Handy for large files that don’t email easily.
Servco were looking for a refresh of their HTML website and wanted a friendly site that emphasises the staff’s technical expertise. Designed to appeal to other experts in the field (MSS Passport) the site has been much enriched with photos and relevant content that highlights their knowledge and kit.
Spider Creative set up and created a new website for LMR Partners, a financial services company in Mayfair. We also did a photo shoot to ensure they had great photos in a consistent style for their home page.
Through the Looking Glass book reviews website has recently relaunched with a logo I designed for the site’s owner Marya Jensen-Gruber. She keeps an amazing record of children’s book reviews and also offers a writing review service for budding authors.
I made a series of logos of which she has chosen one and blended it with the site’s colour scheme.
