Original Source website updates

Some graphics work I've done on the original source website whilst at CodeComputerlove. I designed a honey bee in flash which hovers around the homepage as one of the new products is Shea Butter & Honey, honey....bee.....honey? no deep conceptual thinking there just simple application, think you'll find it quite cute though. Other elements I've worked on are the product cards and bottles in the Range game, and the new tab and flyer for the 'are you ready for the challenge' section. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable job, learning some tricks and shortcuts in photoshop, very useful :)

Visit Manchester Website Tender

Whilst working at Code Computerlove Andrew Lyster and I were asked to shoot a video for a visitmanchester tender, we overlayed graphics to illustrate how the user could interact with the visitmanchester website whilst they were actually in the city, meaning that they could access up to the minute information such as hotspots and make last minute plans. Giving Manchester its own localised feed of tweets, venue ratings, etc would encourage locals and visitors alike to get involved in online activity promoting the city. Users could update text/photo/video feeds for their friends to view through social networks and at the end of the visit the app would compile a digital diary for viewing. Unfortunately we didn't win the tender, but were given great feedback, well done to Magnetic North for getting it, I'm looking forward to seeing the work.
