Animator Ben Bocquelet is a household name, or at least he is in our house. You would not believe how much of his work I have personally been subjected to over the last few years. Every time I switch on our virgin media box, Ben’s work is on. Literally every time! My 10-year-old son has done […]
We are making room for a new addition to the Burningred studio, the success board. 2016 has literally descended upon me with a rampant fury. I’ve had lists, plans and objectives for 2016 that have one way or other been derailed (slightly) in this last few weeks. That plus a particularly difficult end of February […]

You are more than likely in the middle of juggling / exchanging contracts, commissioning builders, carpenters and other trades people in addition to making contacts in the industry with suppliers.

Not just about anything to anyone, but about something […]

We can’t talk for every design agency / freelancer / designer / ‘friend who’s nifty with photoshop’, but this is a way of how to arrive at a logo cost. Let’s look at the time it takes from the moment you engage a designer until the end result of when you get the logo. Pre-considerations […]
