M&C Saatchi Mobile

Now I am working down in London as part of Mylo Design it has been a real treat to work on some of the websites we have been creating. One of the most note worthy has to be having the opportunity to work on the design for M&C Saatchi Mobiles new website which we launched at the beginning of this year.

Mylo were commissioned by M&C Saatchi to design and develop a new website for their Mobile Marketing division. The key with this project was to marry up a clean, crisp and stylish interface with large amounts of sales driven content in a manner that fitted with the powerful and strong M&C Saatchi brand.

With these minimalist design requirements, we had to ensure extra content was available to the more inquisitive users without jeopardising the look and feel of the site. Also, this ‘hidden’ content needed to be as optimised as any other, to ensure the site acted well within search engines as well as it being the most effective sales tool for the client as possible.

Finally, it was important to ensure that future case studies could be added to the site by the client with minimal stress. The content management system enables the client to easily choose a selection of varied templates in order for them to best show off their fantastic mobile application work.

From the green green grass of Cambridge to the hustle & bustle of London

Within the last couple of months I have traded the quiet life of a freelance designer in Cambridge for the hustle and bustle of central London. Working beneath  the railway arches off Rivington St you will now find me tucked away behind the night club Cargo on in Archway 462 next to the Black Rat Press.

Why you ask? Well, when an opportunity stares you in the face you just have to go for it sometimes. I had been planning the move down to London for a while, it seems like the only thing to do if I want to progress as a designer in this country. Anyhow, after working with Mylo Design on several projects the last couple of years and engineering my time to spend more hours in London working on larger contracts it naturally evolved, the relationship between Albi Design and Mylo Design had been forged and we were working together well. We all realised that this was harmonious, the work was flying in and we were churning it out so we have now combined our powers much like that of ‘Captain Planet’ to create a super team, the new Mylo Design! Cheers to Tom and Ben for having me on board and making me feel welcome.

Seeing as this place is new to me I wanted to put up a few snaps of the area, there is sooo much going on and I’m finding it inspiring, first impressions of this area is that I really am in the centre of creativity and I’m loving it. The street art on the walls change on a weekly basis and this is encouraged, seems funny that the day I pop out with a camera to take some snaps of the area there is graffiti on Great Eastern Street based on 200AD comic character Judge Dredd, this is the very same reason I got in to art and design in the first place, I spent hours in the early 90’s with a biro or pencil drawing my favourite characters from my latest copy of the graphic novel, I still have them now!

Looks like this is my new stomping ground for now, I look forward to the next year and growing the team.
