Our Autumn and Winter Collection
/ Posted By Dino Squillino
Before launching our all-new Everyone website, we thought we’d update you about all our recent activities. As you’ll see, we’ve had a super-busy summer and autumn and, as a result, increased the size of the team here at Film City.
So, apart from re-writing our tea-making rota, what exactly have we been up to? First of all we have created a new site for leading recruitment company Global Jobs Network (www.globaljobsnet.com) which, we hope you will agree, makes job hunting clear cut, simple, quick and easy-to-navigate. Global Jobs Network major on filling some pretty amazing vacancies in the finance, accountancy and oil and gas sectors.
Continuing on the technology front, our work with Fibercore develops. Following the well-received launch of their new website (www.fibercore.com), we are now working together to focus on social media with great results, as we showcase their very specific expertise. We’ve learned lots more about the oil and gas scene on visits to Aberdeen recently and people there seemed to just love our take on things with Fibercore.
Our keen interest in culture and entertainment has recently seen us work closely with The National Theatre of Scotland and funding body NESTA to create a new system. Designed to help audience members with sight or hearing difficulties, we’ve taken a year to develop a pretty snazzy piece of software which allows deaf and blind people to enjoy theatre and cinema like everyone else, but on their own terms. Early pilot schemes have been met with great enthusiasm and we are close to official launch – watch out in the press for details and check it out at a theatre near you soon.
You know we love our quirky Scottish brands and have really enjoyed launching the new site for Gillian Kyle (www.gilliankyle.com). A graduate of Glasgow School of Art, Gillian has a passion for illustration and print that now sees the site sell her unique wares across the globe. Among the themes and brands given the distinctive treatment are Tunnocks, Fish n Chips, Creamola Foam and Victorian Vintage. All hand drawn and finished with a wee bit of digital magic, you can enjoy her images on cotton, china, melamine or paper produced to a high quality and exclusively in the UK.
Not averse to working in the background, EVERYONE continues our long-running, close alliance with near neighbours Scottish Television as we help them with their extensive intranet system.
And we have been aiding the autumn breaks cause for Love Loch Lomond (www.lovelochlomond.com) as the site helps you plan your visit to the finest detail. However, as a recent agency speedboat trip confirmed, there is nothing to beat the actual experience of being on the loch itself, courtesy of our future client Amazing Days.
The studio is busy on a number of fabulous new ventures including a new E-Commerce site for hotel suppliers Foremost Products and a new site for large event sound specialists Lab.gruppen.
Meanwhile, as the nights fair draw in, we get our St Andrews Night, Hogmanay and Burns Night all on at once with preparations to launch the new site for leading providers of kilts and highland-wear Slanj.
Finally, we are delighted to be putting the finishing touches to two sites for the prestigious Peacock Salt – a company with true Scottish heritage. One will focus on the commercial salts market for roads and industrial purposes, the other will be all about their passion for food and gourmet salts which are sold globally to the finest chefs, hotels and amateur home cooking enthusiasts like ourselves.
Next time, we might even just have found the time to finish our very own site. The big question is, can this happen before the completion of what looks like the world’s biggest bus terminal-shaped complex currently being built across the road from our abode at Film City Glasgow?
