Insight, advice, news and chit chat

Our very own Chris Dal Din is also a talented artist. He even does owls! Is there no end to the amazingness of the TLD team?

Everyone has a talent – and the folk here at Top Left Design have so much talent it’s coming out of our ears. I would like to say “literally” but that wouldnt be accurate. However, we do like to show off a little more than just amazing websites. I am proud to present a selection of artwork by Chris Dal Din (see him on our team page)

You may wonder why we use owls in our branding at TLD. For this reason, I wrote a blog about it and you can read it here. See, it’s all related and relevant!

Our Oyster Card holders have arrived – hooray!

One of the first jobs we got our newest team member, Aric to do, was make our very own Oyster card holders. We want poeple who commute in London to think of us every single day and the ones that they give you when you sign up for Oyster card holders are just so BORING looking. And we want to make sure we included owls (some of you already know the 3 reasons why we use owls in our branding – but if not – read this post!)

There is a new social site creeping into our awareness.

Perhaps, if I suggested you look at another social network (which I am about to), you would throw your hands up in exasperation and say “I don’t have time!”

But I promise you, this is worth it. Especially if like us at TLD, you are in the business of being visual and creative. It’s called “Pinterest”.

For Pinterest, you need an invitation, so leave a comment below if you would like one and I can send it to you.

If you can show your work in a visual way – this means designers, illustrators, artists, wedding planners, photographers, interior designers, property developers – all of these businesses are based on visual asthetic. This is not just to say you only put in your portfolio and that’s in. The point of Pinterest is to find and share things you like  and then you can also create your own.
