Just caught up with the latest podcast from +Elaine Giles and Mike Thomas about working from home.  Bit of a hot topic at the moment - as learning designers there should be no reason why we can't work from home, but historically at our company, you need to be in the office to be 'seen' to be working.  As most of the rest of my design team are in Leeds - I have to go into an office to then spend most of the day on the phone to people who aren't in my office!!  Hope this will change soon...

New Blog Post - Final part of my feedback in Adobe Captivate results slides -

This is a follow up post to my previous Bespoke Feedback in Adobe Captivate Assessments.  I was reviewing the results slide and thought that having the subject to be reviewed appearing with text ‘You might want to review’ on each line was a little clumsy…

Nice overview of the new features in profile.  Need to update mine at the weekend!!
 
New Google+ Profile Cover Photo
Tips for switching so the important stuff doesn't get covered up!

Obviously with the huge amount of real estate we have in this latest Google+ update, business pages and personal brands have the opportunity to really put together an awesome message and story.

So, I took the morning off after finally getting the new profile, and "sketched" out a style guide. Here you go!

Hopefully I'll turn this into a more official blog post, but I figured I'd save everybody the headache. You should be able to download this photo, load it into Photoshop, and then create your own based off the color blocks. Any questions I'll do my best to help!
