Smartwatch Showdown

Recently, Motorola released it’s new smart watch, the Moto 360. Even more recently Apple announced that it’s now dipping its own feet into the smartwatch industry.

This is Big Fish’s blog, but Big Fish is just a group of people and their passions.… Continue Reading →

5 Key Principles of Using Photography in Presentations

A picture is worth a thousand words. But what does that mean? Images are powerful and emotional. One image can tell an entire story.
