Top 30 Studios in the UK: interactive

In November 2015 Computer Arts magazine published a list of the top 30 studios in the UK, as chosen by a panel of experts.

I wanted to create a tool to summarise this information, to allow users to check out an individual studio and compare it with the rest of the top 30. This was a personal project and was not commissioned by Computer Arts. Since posting this, however, Computer Arts have been in touch saying how much they like it.

My Route: interactive touchtable

My Route was a heritage project based in Birmingham. I was commissioned to design a touch table that would show the changing history of the Stratford Road, one of the key routes in the city, from the 1940s to today.

Working with digital agency Substrakt, and touch table developer John Sear, we created an interactive touch table that was placed in a local community centre and a library for several weeks for the public to use.

The touch table shows a selection of the businesses, with audio, image and video content. Users interact with the touch table by moving the coloured “decade” lenses over the road, and icons appear when there is content available. Touching the icon reveals the content.
