Last week started with a spot of vodka tasting. Not because we’re drastically irresponsible, but because our unwavering dedication to getting involved with the full brand experience meant that we had to have a sip of luxury Angels Tears Vodka, before starting work on their new website. Of course.

We like to keep an eye and an ear on what’s going on in the industry and it seems that Creative Content UK have had a productive old week. Backed by the government, they’ve been launching a new ad campaign that aims to encourage people to only use genuine, bona-fide sites and channels to stream and download content.

Clearly it’s vital to have a site that is responsive but what does this actually mean?
In simple terms it means your site works equally well across all of the various devices. It knows the resolution of the device you’re viewing the page on through identifying the type of browser being used, and adapts to best fit that screen. In terms of accessibility it’s pretty much a necessary tool for your business.

Last month Google changed their logo for the first time since 1999, upgrading to something sleeker and more functional across multiple outlets.
Joining the discussion, we’ve taken a look at why a redesign can be a good idea, found some great logo examples, some not so great examples, and we consider why now might be the time to try something new.

We have this week launched a new iOS app for Citrus Event Staffing. We originally built Citrus a system to manage their event staffing for major UK music festivals, sporting events and bars but this new app will open yet more doors for both them and their staff, and make life considerably easier and more efficient than it was before.

Although there’s never really a quiet time in the Union Room studio, it really is all systems go at the moment. We have new members of staff (more on that in a later post…) and new projects left, right and centre. It’s an exciting time to be a part of the team and the perfect opportunity for a quick blog update on a couple of things we’re currently working on, just to keep you in the loop.

Yesterday Apple launched an array of new tech, including a new super-sized 12.9 inch iPad Pro, an updated iPhone, and the much-discussed Apple Pencil. As usual, twitter has some pretty strong opinions but what exactly is the deal with the new Apple styl… I mean, Pencil?

This week we’re talking about a new way to share, Periscope. In case you aren’t clued up on the latest social media trends, Periscope is a platform that enables users to broadcast videos in real time. All the cool kids are using it. Pioneering the way, they’re slowly but surely working out what it does and why exactly that’s good. But how can it benefit your business?

Whitespace has become increasingly popular in web design. The most attractive and appealing website layouts these days have plenty of it. They’re using it to create a trendy minimalist aesthetic but it’s so much more than just a fashionable feature.
