Interesting day today as I go to the EICC to see the launch of the second round of Civilian Technologies.

CivTech® 2.0, from the Scottish Government’s Digital Directorate, launched in early May, set a series of open public sector challenges which ranged from remote visitor monitoring at historic sites, and better access to digital public services, through to outpatient re-design and a unique system to combat bird-of-prey persecution.  Today reveals the winners and their innovative solutions.

Here’s how the ‘innovation flow’ works.

Recent Work: Progressive Partnership.

Progressive-Mockup copy.jpgDoug Cook and I worked on this new website for Progressive Partnership.

It’s the main outcome of an overall positioning research project and a revamp of the entire suite of Progressive’s marketing and presentation collateral.

We slightly tweaked (updated) the branding and designed, wrote, built, filmed, photographed and marketed the new site.

We feel it’s a clean crisp, professional representation of a clean, crisp, professional outfit that has punched well above its weight in Scotland for many years.

Here’s to as succesful a future for Sarah, Diane, Carole and the gang as the past has been.

Sixth Sense

This is an interesting film from the world famous TED lectures demonstrating a new technology that purports to offer sixth sense technology.  It was developed at MIT by a post grad student, Pranav Mistry.   It has to be said it has a strong geek element about it, but it’s a very interesting development and application of existing technologies.  I wonder if it will ever come to be.  I certainly wouldn’t count it out.
