WE HAVE MOVED!
After months of hard graft we have finally moved into our new offices 'The Old Scotgate' in Stamford, once full of beer and spirits is now full of 'apples' and creatives.
There is still some work to do but we are in and fully functional, so stay tuned for further developments and our imminent opening shindig.
We would like to thank everyone involved that has made the move possible.
Benefits for designing iPhone apps for your business
If you listen very closely, you might just hear the emergence of a new ecosystem that could have a significant impact on both your carbon footprint and your business growth. Yes, we're talking about those on your iPhone, BlackBerry or smartphone.
The introduction of the iPhone in 2007 was a revolution in mobile computing and internet connectivity. The number and type of apps that businesses could develop, opened new windows of opportunity. Have you taken full advantage of these opportunities?
How to get started
All iPhone apps start from a concept. Perhaps you have an idea that can solve a problem or provide a service or you may even have a game idea that will promote your business. An iPhone app needs a solid idea that can be developed into the design stage.
Who will use your small business iPhone app?
A great idea can be a great idea to you, but it's useless if no one else wants to use it. Before you develop your iPhone app for small business, make sure you do market research to determine whether it will work for your intended audience, your customer.
Create your app
Talk to dsquared! We will help you bring your app to life. Keep in mind that you will need to submit your application to the Apple app review team for approval before it can be released on the iPhone.
Get your app into your customers' iPhones
The next step is to market your app to your customers. You can submit your small business iPhone app to the Apple Store, offer as a download on your website, or even use social media as a way to promote your app.
With your small business app in use, you can benefit in many ways.
Here are just a few:
. Allow customers to contact you easily
. Allow customers to make instant orders of your products
. Add a GPS to your app, so customers can find you more easily
. Drive more traffic to your website - reduce your print bills
. Attract new customers. As with any business, attracting new customers and making them aware of the benefits of your product is the key to producing more sales.
The sky's the limit, so isn't it about time your company started getting app, app and away...

Feeling it was time to broaden our horizons, we have been commissioned to design a website for Twelve Nunns, a company specialising in growing hellebores (for those of you that don’t know, they’re plants…no we didn’t know either, but we’ve now learnt all about them!).
Their special Harvington hellebores have been breeding and propagating over the last 15 years to produce the finest hellebores on the market…and so they needed a website to spread the word.
Adding to the list of colleges that dsquared are proud to work with, Southwark college have chosen dsquared to design their new further education prospectus for 2011-2012.
dsquared pitched their innovative design ideas against three other agencies and were awarded the contract based on their extensive knowledge of the further education sector and wealth of experience working with educational establishments.
