Mark Griffin photo, Netdiver Best of the Year

Just completed my latest freelance project. Mark Griffin is one of my oldest clients and his site needed a complete rebuild from the ground up. I'm especially happy with the flash based portfolio section in this project. The grid of thumbnails randomises on each visit so the site always stays fresh. You can check out the new site here www.markgriffinphoto.com.

Raiding the 20th Century - Redux by Strictly Kev

Macromedia site gets Adobe make over

It's weird to see the Adobe logo at the top of macromedia.com having visited on a regular basis for years, hope the good ...
