There are three responses to a piece of design — yes, no, and WOW! WOW is the one to aim for.



Hello everyone, and happy ‘Saturday’ to you all. Today, being the first day of the weekend, we thought we would try to get those creative juices flowing, by giving you an ‘inspiration overload’. We love to see what our fans create, and love to share them will everyone in our monthly ‘You’ve been spotted’ segment. So get creating, and email your projects in to us, for a chance to be one of our featured artists for March.

Our design girls are second to none, as Im sure you will agree. They really have outdone themselves this time, just take a look below.
