    I think all that falls into what I call "English Paper Syndrome" (not sure if there's a proper term for it). People would rather fill up five pages worth of gibberish rather than give a single...

    I don't know how it works there in New Zealand, but here in Toronto, university programs are compiled with different courses. For example, in the first semester of the first year, two of the four courses...

    This might just be me, but writing in 3rd person feels impersonal. I guess its one of those things when there isn't a right or wrong way of doing things, just personal preference. If I was a client, I...

    I'd like to see more emphasis on the Locally Global part. Maybe you can make the font style bolder. Other than that, you're logo looks great and good to go. Design's simple which makes it more professional...

    This is better than the first one. But there are still some things I'm concerned about. The ".co.nz" style looks dated maybe because of the font used and because you stretched it. You can put...

  • Who says books are becoming obsolete...?

    With Amazon slowly taking over the publishing world and bookstores closing left and right, things can sometimes seem a little grim for the brick and mortar booksellers of the world. After all, why would anyone leave the comfort of their couch to buy a book when with just a click of a button, they could have it delivered to their door? Well, here’s why:

      Awesome find! I love bookstores. I'd love to open a beautiful or cozy little bookstore where people can just hang out. Not really sure how to make it fiscally viable, though. I love our Tattered Cover here in Denver.

        Holy wow! I'd get ready to write "oh ______ was my favorite," but then I'd scroll down and love the next one just as much!

        Thanks for sharing!

          I like the idea of books being available digitally now ... but nothing can replace the array of lovely books I have on my shelf. That will always be eye catching to me

            Wow, awesome!

            My wife and I found a really cool old bookstore when we were on vacation last year. We bought some awesome old books, a 100+ year old map and 100+ year old lithograph for very reasonable prices.

            We definitely plan on going back again.

              For me, digital books are great because I don't have to pay up to many times the price of book for postage from the US. I've paid $35 postage for a $1 book. I hardly go to bookstores anymore because I'm more likely to find a book online than at the library or at a store. But I do like books and I love this collection of bookstores.
