This website is a very clean, crips design almost entirely based on white, black, and tones of grey. The client wanted to draw the focus on the content of the blog, rather than the design of it. In doing so I think we achieved a truly special theme. No wonder, the client himself is a designer.

Fire engines soon arrived and it didn’t take long for them to get things under control. It was interesting nonetheless and thanks to cell-phone technology, here’s some pics and a video clip.

The riddle of China’s Area 51

On the internet, a little mystery can go a long way.
