New Design & Layout

Fresh design/fresh fruit

Two things are fresh this week, Buckets & Spades finally has a new design and layout, which is all thanks to Hollie(I'm naff at things like that and she did it all from scratch). She was kind enough to put the hours in and sort it all out for me, I'll take her out for a meal as a thank you. 

What do you all think? If there is anything wrong in your browser please let me know and I can sort it out, I know everyones is on different settings ect.

The second fresh thing is fruit, I've been at my local fruit & veg shop taking close up snaps for my current uni project. Thank you for all the nice comment, you will be glad to hear I am very much less stressed than I was a week ago.


  1. This is so nice, very simple and stylish! The font in the title looks great! And I love the tagline and the way you used the shades of blue you would find in the sea throughout the design. What would you boys do without us girls haha?

    Great job!

  2. It's beaut! And I love that font - what is it? I work in publishing so I'm font obsessed!

  3. It looks like a perfect fit in my browser now, especially the bit I meant about the content columns, nice one! Lucky you for having a girly who knows the internet building language talk (can you tell I don't know it ha) jazzy ♥

  4. I <3 fruits, I like pears =) Lovely picture :)

  7. True you are! I too bought Hawking's The universe in a nutshell, yet barely flicked though half of it . . Soon I hope :)
