ABC – Always Be Cool
Maintaining scrupulous customer relations even in difficult circumstances is simply the right thing to do, and can yield dividends down the line.

Does owning a camera make you a videographer?
The advances in video production technology in recent years have been astonishing. The introduction of 7D cameras into the consumer market has changed everything. Now it’s possible to capture gorgeous HD footage for a fraction of the cost of even a few years ago. These developments are truly amazing and have put the power and beauty of broadcast quality HD equipment into the hands of the masses. At last we are all Stephen Spielberg!

Custom development versus off-the-peg.
What are the relative merits of custom built web solutions over off-the-peg templates?

How to brief a digital agency
To get a comprehensive proposal that outlines everything you need to know before commissioning a new website, app or video you need to provide the right information to your chosen agency. Here's our guide to writing a great brief that gets the results you want.

Hiring an SEO company
You’ve launched a great new website and now you’d like people to see it, correct? Time for some search engine optimisation (SEO) strategy that builds your brand, increases visitors and keeps you at the top of Google (or Bing if you’re that way inclined) for your key search terms.

Edtech: Digital media in education has come of age.
Much has been made of the potential for Edtech – educational technology in the classroom – to transform the learning environment into one of fun, engagement and incremental achievement; shot through with the kind of higher concept understanding that computer simulation is so readily able to deliver. But although the vision is inspiring, the uptake and results on the ground have until recently lagged behind the hype.

Social Media – a guide for the shy and retiring
During a Q&A session at a talk on social media for small businesses recently, I was astonished to hear the MD of a digital agency profess to ‘not get’ Twitter. “Why would I be interested in reading that someone has just made a cup of tea”, was the remark, “what’s the point?”. Needless to say, the savvy audience soon led him into a verbal canyon and clubbed him to death with their smartphones. But it’s a refrain I’ve heard before, (though never from someone who probably ought to know better).

Web design trends, predictions by Drum’s Creative Director
There’s plenty of opinion out there about what the latest trends in web design are, but few actual predictions of what the future holds. I’ll throw down a few trends that I’m fond of in this post but it’s about as easy to tip predictions as it is to nail a sherry trifle to an angry Hyena. Nevertheless, I'll chance my arm.

Why it’s time to take another look at Virtual Reality.
After a couple of decades lying dormant VR is in the news again. Will this generation of VR gadgetry have what it takes for the tech to go mainstream?
