4.  Coffeetopia up next. Nice layout, nice colours, nice little site:


5.  Lastly this week is Launchlist. This has gained a lot of popularity in the last week for good reason; it’s a sweet looking site that’s also a great product. This one would suit an iPhone app perfectly:

Interview with Matt Hamm

Some time last year I interviewed Matt Hamm as I was impressed with his web design and illustration skills. At the time I was writing for an online design magazine which unfortunately didn’t progress into anything so the interview was ditched along with the blog. Recently however, Matt has re-visited my questions and has updated them based on his current work. Here it is, finally, published for all to see.

Thank you for taking time out to answer some questions Matt.  Firstly please tell us what you are up to right now design wise?

Matt: Currently I’m building a website for nicechart.com a sheet music download website. Lately I’ve been illustrating more characters for http://www.gugafit.com and working on a rather sweet little project called http://www.hivetrader.com.  I have also illustrated a children’s book series recently, which I’m really excited about. http://www.als-pals.co.uk.
