JournalNotes & Thoughts

We’re showcased in .net magazine!

Our website has been showcased in the responsive gallery of November’s edition of .net magazine. We’re pretty chuffed to get some recognition for the efforts to make the site fully responsive for different devices and screen sizes. We are humbled to be along side Paravel‘s Build Windows site too. You can download the page in pdf format from here to see the full article or read the transcript below.


Supereight Studio 

Supereight Studio ( is a small and friendly British design studio run by Matt Hamm and Peter Orme.

Its new site, which builds on a logo created by Brent Couchman (www.brentcouchman. com), features bold type and large photographic backdrops (which unfortunately contribute to the rather large page size). Each section name is set in the brilliantly chunky Stratum typeface, with the remaining copy dutifully offset by the more rounded Proxima Nova.

We ask Supereight creative director Matt Hamm about how the studio approaches the design of a responsive site.

“We’ve learnt that it’s totally unrealistic to make Photoshop visuals for every single breakpoint in the design,” is his response. “It’s better to have a strong idea of the direction you want to go in and then just design the break points in the CSS as you build. It’s all about tweaking until it feels right.”
