What's been happening at
Stable Design this month
This year like most years February has just blown by, not only because of the storm (Everyone fine and well over here! Except George had lost power a few times throughout the weekend) but because of how immensely busy it has been here at Stable Design with the team ploughing through loads of interesting and diverse projects. It has been a month to remember and to learn from for many reasons.
The rise of the QR Code
After a recent trip to Bristol, I discovered that printed menus are a rarity, but with a mere scan of a QR code the menus are there – all singing with even an animated twist! These codes have not only made a comeback, but they are thriving. You no longer need to download an app to access the info held in the codes but now Apple and Android phones have the ability to scan QR codes using their built-in cameras. This behaviour has become ingrained in our day-to-day behaviour. In fact, that 45% of shoppers used marketing related QR codes in 2021.

Gone in a blink
For me, February has just gone in a blink of an eye. No two days have been the same since I have started. This month not being the exception, I have managed to be helpful with various projects alongside the team (I hope). Helping create animations, advertising for social media, and Icons designs.
A few exciting and new things have happened this month. I was able to work from home for the first time (I know a few years too late). This wasn’t all bad because I had the company of our new puppy Otis, who has been settling in well but is very much ready to start going out exploring.find out more
Importance of imagery
February has been a busy month on the web development front. We have been busy working on multiple projects but due to their scale and content requirements, the work is still ongoing.
One of the biggest challenges we face especially when we are updating/redesigning older sites is dated or low-quality imagery. Photos play a huge part in how a website looks and feels and without high-quality images, newly designed websites can lack the impact they were intended to have. However, we do appreciate how hard it can be to get the imagery produced, as many factors can dictate what images can be used and where they can be taken.find out more
