In the meantime, enjoy the pictures of the pumpkin carving bonanza that has been taking part at DWD over the last week or so. Have a great halloween.

There are two sides to the argument. Firstly designers who previously only offered logo design are now finding they have to expand their services in order...

It’s getting to that time of year again in the UK where the mad dash begins for University and College graduates to find a job in their desired field. It’s no easy task by any means, especially if you are seeking to gain a foothold in the creative industries. Considering the state of the world economy, it’s no surprise that there aren’t enough jobs to go around, though this has been the case for some time even before the aftermath...

The concept is simple, a £20 donation goes towards helping a great cause and in return you get an official adoption certificate for any word of your choice.
