We always enjoy working with Close the Gap - we've been working together for many years now.
This time we have been working on an online toolkit called Close Your Pay Gap. It is aimed at private and third sector employers who are publishing their gender pay gap figures under new reporting regulations that have been brought in.
Today is Equal Pay Day - the symbolic day of the year when women effectively stop earning compared to their male colleagues. On average women are still earning 18.4% less than men. Many women - including those at The Pool - are switching on their "out of office" notifications to make the point.
The Equal Pay Act is nearly 50 years old but the pay gap still continues but Close the Gap are hard at work making a difference.
The Close Your Pay Gap tool uses employers' pay gap data, along with a series of questions, to provide a personalised action plan to help employers close their pay gap.
There are various ways employers can use the toolkit and we worked hard to ensure every employer's journey was as straightforward as possible so they could get the correct guidance quickly and easily.
If you want to check how you get on then take the test.
We are delighted to be able to reveal the new website we designed and developed for the Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre in Perth and Kinross. It was unveiled at their annual meeting last night so we can now share it with you.
We are very fortunate in our jobs to be able to work with such lovely people and for such worthwhile organisations that are making such a huge difference to people's lives.
Sexual abuse and harassment are very much in the news at the moment with the Harvey Weinstein allegations and the #metoo campaign but organisations such as RASAC have always been there working away to provide invaluable help and support to rape survivors.
The website provides a lot of information for survivors and their friends and families and signposts visitors to help them find the help they need quickly and easily.
In an ideal world there would be no #metoo but there is help is out there and the team at RASAC Perth and KInross are ready to support you whatever you decide to do.
For help in other areas you can visit Rape Crisis Scotland's website.
We get to travel about a bit when we are meeting new clients as we always like to see clients in their own environment so that we can get a feel for the business before we start designing. Some workplaces are more picturesque than others so it is always a delight when we get to visit somewhere beautiful all in the name of work.

We first worked with award-winning food and wine expert Fiona Beckett several years ago when she was looking for a new website to showcase her food and wine pairing skills and offer advice to anyone looking for the perfect match.
Fiona is one of the world's leading food and wine matching experts so you know you are in safe hands if you take her advice. We worked with Fiona and her designer, Helen Miller, to create a bold and bright website for Matching Food and Wine.
It offers all the same functionality as the old website but with a much more modern look that is fully responsive.
So next time you are cooking supper for friends or out for a meal in a restaurant and don't know what wine to choose take a look at the Matching Food and Wine website and you will be an expert in no time! Or even if you just want to drool over the food and wine pictures!
Fiona has also written several e-books that are available to buy from the website.
The writing is on the wall for our latest website – but don’t worry, the signs are all good!
We’ve been working with Telfer Graphics – a specialist signwriting and gilding company.
They can write on or gild pretty much anything from walls to murals to vintage signs for TV and films – you might even have seen their work while watching you favourite film!
We kept the website simple to allow their work to speak for itself. It is so varied and skilled that it’s much better to look at it and admire than talk about.
So, on that note, I will take my own advice and stop talking about it and encourage you to take a look for yourself!
