What a Year…

Well, it’s been far too long since we updated our blog, apologies for that. The year really didn’t begin well when the news about David Bowie dying broke. He’s always been a major hero, so that was a bit of a blow. And from there, things seemed to continue in the same vein – Alan Rickman, Victoria Wood, Prince, Caroline Aherne… 🙁

Not to mention the fact that the only thing that distinguished January from June here in the Dordogne was the spelling! From the moment the clocks chimed in the New Year, it went grey and rainy and it’s only been in last couple weeks that – we hope! – it’s finally improved…

As expats living in France, we obviously also had a vested interest in the UK referendum resulting in a Remain victory, so that too wasn’t a great moment for us. Still, we’re British and that means we mustn’t grumble! 🙂

We’ve had a lot of new projects to get our teeth into so far this year, which we look forward to getting live over the coming weeks. It’s perhaps one of the best things about this line of work that your clients can come from all different kinds of industries and backgrounds. Current projects include an English butcher based in France, a wedding planner, an oil painter, a logistics specialist, and a drone photography service!

One that has just gone live deserves a special mention: Sharks’ Ink. This is an established print studio in Colorado, USA. They had an existing website that was built in the 90s, so needed modernising. Their new version is a WordPress site containing a searchable database of all the artists and their work. Take a tour!

We look forward to telling you more about all our projects as they develop. In the meantime, we’ll try and do better at keeping our spirits up and our blog updated. Au revoir from us.
