If you want to get ahead get a hat…

Sarah Lomax and Rachel Skinner have been making hats for over 20 years since serving their apprenticeships together with Frederick Fox, the Queen’s milliner. They asked us to make them a website. We created a portfolio site to showcase their stunning range of hats. We combined beautiful photography inside a responsive layout to provide a stylish shop window for their beautiful work.Time and budgets were a consideration so we opted for an existing WordPress theme modifying it to suit their particular needs. The theme itself also included options for social network integration and blogging.

It’s frothy baby II…

Following on from our hugely successful Aerolatte Hot video two new videos for the Compact and Grande versions. Since the original video, content distribution technology (not to mention my kitchen) has changed  and these two reside on the companies very own youtube channel for their partners to stream to their respective websites.

Bag yourself some creative…

We recently created this online campaign for Cheque Centre via our friends at The Creative Cell Scotland. The brief was to highlight the best possible exchange rates for foreign travel. We came up with a conveyer belt creative solution that perfectly utilised the shape of the Leaderboard advertising space purchased.

A (YouTube) video is worth a thousand words…

AVM is the leading visual communications systems integrator in the UK. They wanted a video to demonstrate the wide range of services they offer and the clients that they work with. We used Apples Motion 5 to create a graphically rich sequence using their own library of images plus one or two additional stock shots / videos. We also commissioned an ‘online’ voice over artist which proved to be considerably more cost effective than the traditional studio based approach.

Swiffy – HTML5 in a Jiffy…

flash Google Labs today released a new product called Swiffy that converts Flash SWF files into HTML5 compatible code. We’ve been taking a look at it and although it’s not perfect it isn’t bad either. While we’re not advocating a return to full fat flash sites (or the ubiquitous skip intro) this does provide an additional string to the digital bow. Used carefully it can afford us levels of animation simply not achievable using jQuery and the like. It also gives us the opportunity to create a more engaging ‘fallback’ than the dreaded ‘alternative gif’. Flash is dead. Long live Flash!

World in Motion…


Here at the Deli we get pretty excited about software updates but rarely more so than for our favourite video compositing software Apple’s Motion. Mac Rumors recently posted a number of images puporting to be screen grabs of the next release and we think it all looks pretty cool. UI aside, the utilisation of our 6 shiny new cores (and 16 gigs of RAM) would be enough to leave us in something of a spin…
