The Salcombe Web Design Blog

Welcome to the Salcombe Web Design blog. This is kept up to date by our Creative Director Daniel Ashton. Daniel is a project manager, graphic designer and website consultant.

In my last blog article I covered a mini case study on the use of icons on the UK Ikea store.

mini case study - 1Password

Agile Web Solutions have developed an innovative system to help online users remember the various passwords required across a range of sites. They use explaining actions to save space and speed things up for the user. They use 2 different types of icon to show that there is not only more information available, but also to suggest what that content is. The play and zoom icons are used for video and to enlarge images respectively.
