MrColor – A PHP colour manipulation library featured image

Over the last month I’ve been working a colour manipulation library for PHP called MrColor. Please forgive the American spelling, it is the language of the web after all.

The library is built around the idea of having an easy way to work with colour data. Once a new Color object is created you can populate it with colour values, edit those values, use those values to generate new data, and retrieve the colour in the format you require. You can download it or fork it from GitHub here:

Hutchhouse win Best Overall Business award, 2012 featured image

Last month Hutchhouse was delighted to have been nominated for an award. As it turned out on the night… we won!

The evening was organised by Inca Accountants who are a major player for all things accountancy related. They have a huge client list and help dozens of small businesses in the Oxfordshire area. Their approach is both professional and personal which is why we’ve stuck with them for all these years. We take great comfort knowing our accounts are safe in their hands.

After 10 years in business Inca threw a black-tie event to celebrate their own success and to thank their customers. A fantastic meal was laid-on before the nominations were announced. It came as a pleasant surprise to have won the category for ‘Best Overall Business’ – just look at the smiles on those faces.

Being recognised for your hard work and  continued business growth is always a great thing, so we have to thank the great team we have built up at Hutchhouse. We think we constitute the best digital agency in Oxfordshire and rival the very best in the country.

It’s been a great boost to the team and we’re over the moon to have this award. Thanks Inca!
