The last few months have been a little bit hectic. Starting a new role (senior creative managerthankyouverymuch), kicking Early Doors Disco into 5th gear, reviving a slightly gasping Twespians and joining a band have all made life a little mental. I thought I’d do a wrapup of various things I’ve been doing across the web…
- I pulled together an interactive infographic for Anywhere Working with the help of Syd called ‘Future World of Working’. The entire thing took far too long to pull together and design that I ended up getting a bit sick of the look of it by the end! More that I would’ve liked to do to it, including some more texture, detail and fun little easter eggs, but alas there were deadlines… Check the infographic out here.
- For BE Broadband, we put together a history of the internet for their facbeook timeline, complete with sketches for important milestones. I had a lot of fun pulling these sketches together with Sam, who wrote most of the content. Check out their page here.
- Pulled together an ASCII invite to this year’s Critters Web Dev and Design Awards for Ubelly. Absolutely LOVED doing this on a Friday afternoon. Was inspired by and borrowed some of the code from Adam Onishi, who thankfully didn’t get too cranky at me.
- You can follow more of my design stuff on my dribbble account.
- Played with the Twitter API to pull together a quick Boris Bikes/Twitter hack that lets us know the capacity of our local Boris Bike dock. Quick, dirty and effective. Check out @33Bikes here.
- At the end of March I decided to stick my neck out into the theatre/social media world again with a post on ‘Just because you have a Twitter account, doesn’t mean you’re doing social‘. Nowhere near as much controversy as I expected, but some nice responses via the Twitters.
- Based on the 33 Bikes hack I put together a post for work on the 33 Digital blog called ‘Tinkering with the Internet‘.
- Not so much a post of mine, but a rather indepth interview went up on Defected Records about Early Doors Disco. I learnt the valuable lesson that you never just ‘chat’ to a journalist, as a lot of it could end up in the articel! Luckily, I didn’t actually say anything that could get me in trouble…
- Over on Ubelly I’ve done a ton of events posts, but the two that I’m happiest with are around inspiration I’ve had from listening/chatting to people. The first is around creativity bandwidth, as inspired by Bill Buxton. The second is around Data Auralisation, as inspired by Peter Gregson and then Tassos Stevens connected the dots for me…
Going to try and get back on the blogging bandwagon on this blog as well. Let’s see how I get on with that…
