2 recent redesigns

March 24, 2009By David HornCSS, Design, work

Right – a couple of re-designs to kick things off with. These two projects were amongst the first I ever took on – almost 5 years ago for the first one. So, first up it’s the Fresh Start Method website … if you need to stop smoking then one of the best ways for you … Read More

Why I always ask for budgets

February 5, 2009By David HornCSS, Design, work

When I’m approached to put together a proposal for website development, my first question is usually ‘What’s your budget?’. It feels very un-English to just come straight out and ask about money, but for a lot of people – whether they’re talking about it or not – that is exactly what it’s all about. And … Read More

two quick site launches

December 18, 2008By David HornCSS, Design, work

Always nice to end the week with a couple of site launches … firstly, and most excitingly for me, I’m launching crossinthebox.com – an online football game for the English Premiership. Full Disclosure: I’m a partner in this business … and I’m very excited about it! It’s dead simple … open an account, put some … Read More

Assaroe Falls

December 11, 2008By David HornCSS, Design, work

It seems that my work in designing and developing the Assaroe Falls (it’s a set of self catering apartments) website is getting some recognition. I’m flattered, but a little sceptical as to how these articles are often titled … I mean, come on … is it really one of the ‘30 Most Inspirational Business Designs‘? … Read More

Stop supporting IE6!

November 3, 2008By David HornCSS, Design, Web Development

Having come across a particulary irksome problem with a client this past week (the problem was not with the client, but the project!), I’ve gotten to thinking: “When the hell is it okay to stop supporting IE6?”. I’m not alone in thinking this – and some more illustrious names than mine have been mulling it … Read More

CSS Methodologies, and resource

October 7, 2008By David HornCSS, Design

Natalie Downe is one of the excellent people who make up Clear Left and she gave a presentation at the recent Bar Camp London event – all about the methodology that Clear Left use in their CSS mark up. Ordinarily, I don’t find sets of slides to be particularly useful, but in this case Natalie … Read More

Site Launch: Belleek Cottages

October 2, 2008By David HornCSS, Design, work

I live in a village in Fermanagh, called Belleek. I work next door to a wonderful man called Michael McGrath – he’s a retired teacher, he runs a fishing tackle shop from the back of a tea-room, he fixes the kids bikes when they come round with chains dangling on the floor and brakes that … Read More

Site Launch: Kitchen Essence

September 22, 2008By David HornCSS, Design, work

Ah – I’ve loved this site from the word go! It’s been a long time coming, but Kitchen Essence finally launched late last week. I love it because it’s a simple, classic design that works really well with their product range of (yup) simple, classic kitchen products. Good stuff – and a well done to … Read More
