About Us

Speckyboy Design Magazine launched in October 2007, as the personal freelance web design homepage of Paul Andrew. Somewhere over the consequent months we dramatically changed direction, and evolved into the design resource magazine that you see today.

We offer insightful tutorials, time-saving techniques, fresh and useful resources and inspirational art, covering web design and development, graphic design, advertising, mobile development and we even have a soft spot for the occasional Lego post. We really love to showcase the best and most innovative web design styles, keep you up to date with the latest in current design trends and highlight the latest in web technologies… You’ll love us!
