Bonkers law firm website used terrible artist to draw its lawyers
30 September 2016
This week's bonkers law firm website features horrible pictures of its staff.
Watford trademark and patent firm Dollymores begins well, greeting visitors to its homepage with a gallery of tasteful sketches of a lamp, a chair and a globe.
But it gets a bit amateur hour from there. An unnamed draftsman, presumably a partner who fancies themself as a bit of an artist, appears to have persuaded the firm to substitute photos of the staff with wobbly sketches. The creative maestro employed a flamboyant scribbly-arms motif to really bring the subjects to life. And to avoid drawing hands.

RollOnFriday's thoughts are with Philippa. However, detractors should note that a drawing does have certain advantages over a photo, particularly ease of amendment. ROF understands that a balding Shoosmiths partner recently ordered the PR team to photoshop him a hair transplant.

These sketches remind me a bit of school textbooks. The ones where the printing budget would stretch to black, white and one colour but no more.
