Inspiration and Critique: Saddleback Leather

I first came across Saddleback Leather in about 2009. I was looking for design inspiration for my new blog. The old Saddleback Leather website had just won a design award and it was the start of a love affair. I subscribed to their newsletter and have followed them ever since.

The Perfect Handshake

When I was a child my Grandfather taught me how to give a good handshake. My Grandad was a bank manager back in the days when being a banker was respectable and when a local business manager made lending decisions based on his personal judgement and not upon what the computer said. He told me that a good handshake was a critical part of a first impression and that that first impression made a huge difference in whether or not he agreed to loan that person money.
