Live-Feed

Create a live-feed of photographs for your event.

11 June 2012, 11:17

Display images in a live feed using a smartphone, a few apps and a Mac. A couple of people asked me how it was achieved so I thought I’d write a quick post on it. There’s nothing big or clever here, just a few smart apps and a bit of tweaking.

Your Website on a Phone

27 April 2012, 15:33

Before I point the finger, hands up, I’ve done it too.

Yep, along with the hoards of a new generation of mobile phone users, whilst walking down the street, I too have almost bumped into the bloke coming the other way because I’ve had my head down starring at my smart-phone.

70's Cars - the future!

12 August 2011, 10:09

Maybe it’s the fashion, maybe it’s the desire to reduce fuel use with aerodynamics or maybe it’s shared platforms for cost savings , but new cars do all seem to look the same.

The relief is of course found on Flickr, and surprisingly in the style dead end of the 1970’s. Which isn’t such a dead end after all, but joyous madness going by these pictures.

QR Codes

13 July 2011, 11:46

They are nothing new (first presented in 1997) but I’ve recently begun to see more and more QR codes about the place and actually using them. In the Quad exhibition I visited the other week, you could snap a photo of the QR code and get an audio guide of the exhibition. It’s a great development of the gallery audio guide, where you might usually have a headset and select the number relevant to the artwork you’re looking at.

LogoCrunch

12 July 2011, 10:32

If you’re in any way interested in new technology, you will have visited the TechCrunch site at some point I’m sure. Set up in 2005 this US based site offers news and analysis on all things tech, start-up profiles, product previews and web site analysis.

TechCrunch quickly grew to become a very popular site with 4.5 million rss subscribers. The big and controversial news in September 2010 was that AOL was to purchase TechCrunch, which it did in January 2011.

The End of Print?

1 July 2011, 16:46

It’s a question that’s been asked for a good few years now, with the increasing accessibility and availability of technological solutions to consume media that traditionally would be provided by newspapers, magazines and books, how long does print have to live?

Over the last couple of weeks a number of news stories have moved the debate on a step, including the latest edition being the final one in print for industry magazine Design Week. Almost 25 years after it’s first edition the publication is going web only. There is naturally a lot of talk on the web about what it means for the UK design industry, of which DW has been a large part of for quarter of a decade.

  • Museum Guidebook - Crich Tramway Village As a family favourite the call from Crich Tramway Museum was very welcome and exciting! They were looking for work on a new guidebook to sell to their visitors packed with information not available anywhere else in the Museum as well as providing a route to explore the site. Since 1959 the Crich Tramway Village and National Tramway Museum have created a unique visitor attraction out of the spoil of a disused Derbyshire quarry. Initially intended as a space to preserve and repair retired tramway cars it has since developed into a fully fledged attraction with working tram routes indoor exhibition spaces nature walks and more as well as facilities for visitors to eat drink and explore the site. Their existing Guidebook had served them well for 5 years but sales were declining and the content was getting dated especially as the recent years had brought a number of rapid changes and improvements. The refreshed Guidebook was to be packed with new content images and information. I worked alongside the team at Crich to design the Guidebook alongside their brand guidelines. The Crich team were keen to provide a clean clear look to the Guidebook this involved stripping back some of the more over-decorative elements of the brand and streamline fonts and photography frames some of which had given other marketing materials a seaside tram feel but didnt encompass the wider tram history the museum explored. The book is compact easy to handle whilst visiting and utilises well-sized text carefully set with a selection of great images of the Tramway Village in action as well as historical images of the site as it developed. An especially interesting spread includes a timeline of the sites history the arrivals of each tramcar and the progress of the site from hobby enthusiasts storage to a popular local day out. The final printed piece a 52-page perfect bound book feels excellent to hold the print provided made a great job of the production. You can buy the Guidebook from the Tramway Village when you visit or if its perhaps a little too far purchase it online from the Crich Tramway website. The project was great to work on the folks at the Tramway Village a pleasure to collaborate with and Im delighted with the result of the hard work of everyone involved.

GENEROUS WORDS

It was refreshing to work with an experienced, professional graphic designer who quickly understood what we wanted to achieve at Scoops Diner. We provided the bare bones and Kieran fleshed it out to create a spectacular end product design. Aside from the graphic design, I found Kieran to be a warm, genuine, humorous and down to earth chap who pro-actively gave positive and constructive advice on other aspects of our business. I have already and will continue to recommend Kieran to other businesses for his design services work.
