06 05/2008 A Mouth Watering Catalogue
Propeller were recently commissioned to produce a new catalogue for local food manufacturers Euronatural. The brief was to update the look from the previous catalogue and create a clean, contemporary design.

The issues covered go without saying for most standards-aware developers though sadly we see far too many websites clearly designed by windows-only developers which break in other browsers or operating systems.
