Shopping Coming to Instagram
Mobile has changed the way people shop. You browse products while waiting to be seated for dinner, make purchases on your commute into work, and compare prices online when you’re at a store to see what’s the better deal.

Starting this month, Instagram are testing a way for users to learn more about the items they view within an Instagram post.

No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA
So, what is the importance of having a reCAPTCHA on your webform? What does it do or more importantly what does it do for you? Simply put captcha is state of the art spam and abuse protection for your website. It is a free service that is provided by Google that we can attach to your webform and will prevent spammers for sending through false data or even viruses through your webform and into your inbox.

In the past captcha has been a complicated process with the user attempting to decipher a scrambled image of letters and numbers. Google in their brilliance have now simplified it. It's as simple as checking a box. On the surface its simple, however this is fully backed by Google's secure infrastructure & learning engines. Even better it is now fully accessible for the visually impaired AND is mobile responsive.

If you would like to find out about integrating reCaptcha with your webforms please feel free to contact us.
Current Design Trends
Have you noticed a shift in design on the web recently? Bold colours, big buttons and shapes. A prime example is www.theverge.com which recently launched a redesign, stepping into bold colours and gradients and even created their own design language with the use of shapes and lines. Instagram's new branding with its bold colour gradient logo is another great example of this. Click the link below to find out more about the current design trends across the web.
