A mentor in digital art and web design passed away, R.I.P., I learned a lot from the best, Hillman Curtis.An inspiring figure in the digital creative world, evolving from musician, to web, to film.

The success behind Curtis is the theory and motto he employs at his company; “design is a plan for action”. Design isn’t necessarily about making something look better; it’s about moving someone into action.

“We are commercial artists, with a responsibility to the brand and the product we have agreed to help promote. We try to keep in mind the equal responsibility we have as artists, to do what artists have always done; respond to, reflect upon and, hopefully, influence the world.”

“We’re New Media Designers, firm believers in the equal and inseparable power of visual and functional communication.”
