We all spend the holidays in a different way, some of us have the family around a dining room table with lots of food and drink, others spend it somewhere sunny, others, whether we like it or not spend it alone. However we like to spend our holidays, it’s always a great time to reflect. What did we do, what did we achieve? How can I do things better or differently this year?

I made my way over to the Apple Store at the Manchester Arndale earlier, passing the Christmas Markets on my way and headed straight to the iPad Pro tables. On picking up the iPad, I noticed a slight resemblance to holding a laptop, just without the keyboard. The screen is near enough the same size as my Macbook Pro, just a heck of a lot thinner and lighter. First Impressions? It feels like an Apple product, smooth exterior, light, sexy and definitely something to show off to your friends or work colleagues. It remarkably feels solid, however, something Apple really works hard to achieve considering almost all other tablets are made of plastic. Swiping my fingers across the screen felt normal, exactly what I’m used to with my iPad mini, it feels fast and responsive, but so it should for £679. Browsing the internet was nice, our company website looked great, actually sized quite well on the enormous screen. I picked up the cool looking pencil next to the screen, and began writing on the screen, but to my amusement nothing happened. I’m not used to this with a normal a pencil, so I was a little confused. A nearby …

I recently read an interesting article in the Guardian on the importance of having a Chief Futures Officer. After my immediate, What?! It suddenly dawned on me. What do the disruptors (Netflix, Vimeo, Amazon, Uber) of world have in common? These companies think forwards, then even think of so far into the future I’m probably not even alive in their future vision. They’re thinking about the next big thing, the next piece of technology that will captivate the world. Apple’s rumoured to be looking to developing a car, well thats years away. Uber probably want driverless cars, I can’t wait for that. Read the whole article here. http://bit.ly/1Mg9b4U https://medium.com/@mylokaye
Mylo & Lynne attended the Living Wage 2015 launch in Manchester. Read about my thoughts afterwards and what it means for Manchester. “As Manchester’s first digital development & design agency to join the Living Wage foundation, I encourage other agencies to get on-board and join the scheme that will benefit both employees and employers.” Mylo Kaye says. http://dreamr.uk/mylo-kaye-living-wage-2015
They’re static and don’t adapt, we’re advancing and everything is moving too fast for logos to keep up. Responsive logos are a great way of tailoring your company’s brand for all platforms: mobile, table and computer. Now responsive design is a necessity it’s important that your logo doesn’t fall behind. Your logo with strapline may work on your website when viewed on a computer screen but on a mobile it doesn’t and it’s damaging your customer’s experience. This isn’t just with the strapline, this goes for the detail too. We need to slim down our logos to adapt for mobile users, where less can be seen and space is like gold dust. It may take some work and is best done by a brand or design professional, but it will really help your brand to stand out. All the big names are doing it: Coca Cola, Chanel, Nike and even Disney. Take a look at responsivelogos and see if your logo works on mobile & tablet. The logo is dead, long-live responsive logos. Mylo Kaye is Head of Digital for Dreamr in Manchester.
