Join the action! is a new global online advocacy community that brings people-powered politics to global decision-making.

Avaaz—meaning “voice” in several European, Middle Eastern and Asian languages—was launched in January 2007 with a simple democratic mission: organize citizens everywhere to help close the gap between the world we have and the world most people want.

In 3 years, Avaaz has grown to 5.5 million members from every country on earth, becoming the largest global web movement in history. 

Visit their site and join up now, I encourage you!


VanBurWray holding page

I got the holding page for VanBurWray, the local chartered accountants, all up and ready last night. Visual design by Hall of Design. Look out for VanBurWray’s brand new site – coming soon!

I just completed A List Apart’s survey…

The good folks at A List Apart are running a survey of web professionals, and they plan to make the data available to us once it’s finished!

Click the image above to take the survey.

Amazing paper graphics!

Check out Yulia Brodskaya’s site, it is full of amazing visual treats. Good also to see the lost art of quilling coming back too!
