Another day, another disappointing website annoys me. How do design agencies get away with the rubbish designs that get passed off as corporate websites? Today’s horrible example is www.cccmedia.co.uk, which is probably a fantastic organisation, but with a site design by memyself and i. AVOID AVOID AVOID. And it’s really not like me to be nasty about sites… Must be the weather….
I’ve added some new pics to the site. Check ’em out.
Well, a few days in, and I’m still wondering how to use this site. This publishing system is fantastic; easy to use, a breeze to set up and designed to be played with. However, the concept behind the whole thing is still a little murky to me.

Having spent all week trying to get to the top of City Hall, the newest of London’s public buildings, I finally got there today. It was almost worth the wait. The view from the 9th floor is fantastic, especially as you can see my flat :-) The chamber looks like a boring European parliament, but the architechture is interesting. Comparisons with the Guggenheim museums are not unreasonable. I took pictures and the film is being developed as I type. I also had lunch in the cafe on the Lower Ground floor, where the food is very reasonably priced but nothing to shout about.
If you missed the saga about me trying to get to see the darn thing, read more…

Inspired by the Guardian, I thought I’d try "blogging". I’ve also gone for a full redesign of the site, just for kicks. I hope you like it; I’m still getting used to it :-)
Sarah should be contributing to this site too, now. And I’m hoping some friends and family will be convinced they want to spend some time in front of a computer sharing thoughts and links with the rest of us.
