I wanted to quickly mention Get Signoff. In case you don’t know, Get Signoff is a web application developed by Headscape that allows you to present designs to clients and get their feedback.

For a long time it was a bit of a side project for Headscape but we have recently taken on Ryan Taylor to move it forward. He has been working hard and on the 27th April we have some fairly significant announcements to make about the products future.
