Whoah, Whoah Whoah, Wheres the beef?

Okay, it’s been brought to our attention that one of our competitors is grossly mistaken about the way dot. do business, and as such, we feel it’s important to put the record straight. Dot. have always worked professionally and we’ll continue to, so we’re not getting into a mud-slinging match here. In fact we’re sure that ‘A Regional Architects’ have simply got their wires crossed, and as such, will be contacting us soon to apologise for their schoolboy error!

Anyway, just to be clear; we love what we do, we give all our design work 100% and we have NEVER and will NEVER be about ‘copy and paste’ design. Whether you require a fantastic little logo, or a polished 300-unit architectural scheme, we give each job the same attention to detail and always offer a bespoke solution, tailored to our clients’ needs. Just ask them – our customers tell us they’re really happy, and that’s at a time when good service and real value for money is all that counts.

What some people forget is that dot. are a new company. Our business model and values are based on excellent service, top notch design, and ‘going the extra mile’. We’re passionate about what we do and we’re very aware that we wouldn’t be around if we offered a substandard service, something that’s maybe easier to get away with in a larger firm.

We are laying tracks for a company that we hope will grow and, to that end, we promise to maintain these values, whether we’re two people or two hundred. We will never forget why we are doing this, to be able to give 100% to each job, offering clients advice on the thing we’re passionate about – design! We are fully covered for all our design work with more than adequate PI insurance in the unlikely event that anything does go wrong, and should anyone want to discuss this, feel free to drop us a line!

Both directors are driven by our love for what we do. We feel like the luckiest guys in the world; waking up and being paid to do this, so rest assured we’re not going to risk it to make a quick buck, it’s not in our nature!

We assume that this will be the last of what we have heard, but if you have any issues, comments or just feel like a chat, feel free to contact either Darren or James.

Okay, enough of that, James is off to tend to his newborn, and Darren fancies a surf – it is 5.30 after all!

Its been too long!

Okay, so first off, apologies! We haven't updated our blog in a while, and we are really sorry for that, however, the silver lining to that is that we are now in a position to offer you tonnes of juicy gos from the dot. camp!

First on the list is the all important and very exciting birth of Lola Whitney. As many of you know, James has been on tenterhooks as the birth has got nearer and nearer, and you will all be pleased to hear that little Lola was born on Tuesday the 9
th June and came in at a very cute 7 pounds 1 ounce. Family are all doing well, and all the dot team wish them all the best - another member to the growing dot family!

Now to work stuffs - we have had a raft of instructions, the most recent being a very cool illustration from the department for the BBC magazine, FOCUS.

We cant show you the Illustration as yet, don't want to give the game away for next months issue, but make sure you check it out, on sale at the end of the month! The dot. team are really proud of the final article, and chuffed to bits that we could do a professional and exciting job for a client as large as the BBC - payoff for the hard work we have put in during this pesky credit crunch.
That's not all from the graphics guys, we have seen an increase in the number of instructions for websites. With the market as it is, businesses have started to appreciate the importance of a decent website and marketing strategy, and as such, dot. have been awash with exciting re brand work.

We are currently waiting for the final touches being made to the
Churchfields Ice Cream site, of which we will be sure to let you know. has now gone live, so well done boys. Thanks to Sean at Brighter productions, a great client who brought so many ideas to the table that it made our job very easy, and a pleasure to work on. Good luck in the future!

Our website work is fairly bespoke, and as such we work alongside Jellyphish Studio, who's clever computer bods build our designs into usable and exciting sites - a relationship we see growing as days go by, thanks guys! We are currently working up a re brand with Jellyphish, so we will keep you posted to when that is ready to go live.

Sorry for the delay in getting a post up guys, we don't want to leave you hanging like that, but we suppose its the only real negative to what has been a fruitful few months for dot. We will be posting again soon some of our most recent Architectural work, so keep an eye for that in the next week or so!

All the best
