We really want to show you something interesting that we found on this website: www.huffingtonpost.comIt's an experiment by a young lady called Esther Honig. She calls it "Make me Beautiful".
Take a look at this webpage.
Read the intro then open two windows with the same URL side by side. Then with the original photo in one window, scroll through the opposite window to see how different these images actually are. Some are just horrendous (in our opinion), but some are very interesting too.
We've picked ours, but which one do you think has been retouched the best?
Ours is Italy.

We are really pleased Tony and David from the newly formed enterprise - 'Ryedale Brewing Company Limited' phoned us in January for help with branding the business. This was something we were excited to get our teeth into as it was a break from modern cutting-edge projects we so commonly work on.
The traditional company describes themselves as: "A small family run business using traditional methods to brew fine ales in the district of Ryedale in the heart of North Yorkshire" and that I guess is exactly what they are.
So, using an illustration line drawing, (rather than something directly drawn on screen or using a photograph) was the way forward and carefully coloured so as not to look computerised made the logo fitting with their line of work.
Once the logo was finished and approved, we went on to produce business stationery - Letterheads, Comp Slips and Business Cards.
The next task was to design and produce a series of four Pump Clips. The clients were so pleased with the logo, they decided they would like this to feature on the clips, so we chose different colour themes for each brew and decided on a a curved, oval clip with a perspex face.
The clips were sent to the manufacturers and within one week we took delivery of 50 off each clip. We, along with the client, are delighted at how they have turned out - very eye-catching and shiny... just the job!
Look out for the clips next time you visit a pub selling real ales... and if you recognise them, have a pint and let us know what you think.
We'd like to wish Tony and David every success with their Craft Brewery!
