Yes I can

“Yes I can”

(well not me personally, I’m talking about talented composer Guy Farley)

Hugely impressed with the superhuman effort made making the promotional Paralympics trailer for Rio 2016, ‘Yes I can’ wonderfully filmed and edited, then discovered that our client Guy Farley had composed the music for it – added to his new official website, great work Guy.

Need to get away from city life?

Churchwood Valley provides an oasis of lush green countryside and a coastal holiday location, it really is a breath of fresh air! Back to basics with wooden cabins situated in the South Devon coast just a short walk from Wembury beach. Updating this website has reminded me how glorious this conservation area is, so if you need to escape from the stress of city life, noise and technology – swap gadgets for a pair of binoculars, fishing net and a swimsuit.

We all need a little support at sometime…

We all need a little support at sometime…

I can concur wholeheartedly with this statement, as life can certainly throw some challenges at us. At Cascade Therapy, (based in Birmingham, UK)  there is friendly, experienced Psychotherapy, Counselling and coaching close at hand. Ready to spring into therapeutic action for all those who require assistance, whatever your age, race, gender, sexuality or physical abilities – non judgemental, just helpful advice and support.

I wish we could all be like this (take note Donald Trump – the antithesis of non-judgemental!) So if you are feeling anxious or every suffer from panic attacks maybe read Anne Wanjiku’s blog for some positive advice. A pleasure working on this website design for a lovely client.

Broomhill Manor playground

Gauntlet thrown down

busbunkbed_square_HDR12Our challenge: to try to coordinate a photoshoot at Broomhill Manor  (# luxury self-catering holiday properties) in Bude, aligning the weather with the properties being vacant. So we headed to the north coast of Cornwall and photographed Broomhill in full blossom glory – in-between the hail storms… Do you like their cute new bunk-beds?

Guy is now official

Scoring over 40 films we at Skim have been impressed by this composers prolific musical career so far – I feel very underachieving! We have tried to produce an impressive backdrop for you to explore the the works at the new OFFICIAL Guy Farley website.

Personalised pet bandana

Personalised pet bandana

I hope you have one of these for you beloved pet, if not why not? – they are the latest must have, on trend, accessory – see Lola rockin’ hers at the Crab Stitch Embroidery website we’ve just launched. (other printed items are available)… Support local businesses!

They never forget, unlike us…

We have recently been involved with designing and building a website for a man called Torn who runs the Bunong Elephant Project in Cambodia, it was certainly a joy looking at film and images of these majestic creatures and learning more about eco-tourism.  The local people in these countries are working hard to protect the future of their environment and the animals, as they understand how important they are. I feel I really need to go and meet these Bunong people and elephants, just for important research – (ahem) (Look, you get to wash the elephants as well!)

Blacker than Black

Being in the design business we do like to have in depth discussions about shades of colours whilst stroking our beards, guzzling large quantities of monsoon malabar and listening to the morning delights of Lauren Laverne. So the latest is Vantablack – the new black and darkest of them all (sounds like new Harry Potter enemy). This colour has been developed by a British company, the pigment absorbs 99.96% of light that hits it – impressive! Don’t know if we will be able to incorporate the new black into all our future designs as the artist Anish Kapoor has been given exclusive rights to use it. (bit greedy if you ask me…)
