• The Third Colour

    This is not just an article about us introducing a third colour to our brand. The fact we have been black and white for so long is a good thing in our mind, it's clear, honest and visibly transparent in it's simplicity.

    However user usability is everything and a lot has changed over the last 3 years, for a start mobile browsing is now bigger than ever with the big players all upping their screen sizes to the point we are using our mobiles for content instead of our iPads.

    It's because of the iPhone 6s Plus that we decided to introduce #369bc8 into our design elements. With its oversized screen, browsing is as good as it gets on a mobile device. Websites arguably look great on a retina screen with super sharp text and rich colour imagery. We knew we had to introduce the third colour to highlight any call to action simply because the UI is bigger, easier to navigate and as a large part of our traffic comes from mobile users we wanted user usability to be clear and consistent.
