More Visitor Concepts: Royal Navy Submarine Museum

New concepts that make the basic visitor platform a bit more engaging and fun to use. This app is for a submarine and submarines spend most of their time underwater so it stands to reason that we should try an mimic that with openGL.

Splash Screen:

As basic as can be but the magic happens after load:

The screen begins to fill up with water giving the sense of submerging.


On touch user interface element would ripple giving off tiny bubbles where the touchpoint occurred again giving the illusion that the app is underwater.

Further emphasis can be given with animated fish and sea creatures floating in at random

or even more subtly with maybe bubbles floating up from behind the tab bar.

The final thing to complete the effect will be to make the light rays on the background image view shimmer with different opacities.

This will look awesome once the 3D is done…

Saul Bass: Hero

Spent all of my lunchtime thumbing through the genius of Saul Bass. He has been a heavy influence on me from an early age and this monster of a tome is a testament to his true genius.

So inspired I did this logo for a mate of a mate:

Awesome feedback from my mates mate:

“It’s hideous – looks like a five year old did it”

*sigh*

Some old pitch work i stumbled upon

Back in 2009 we did a pitch to AMEX about a ‘social concierge’ here are the vids we used to introduce the concepts:

They loved the concepts, blown away by them but as usual did nothing with them. Fast forward 18 months later there was a big PR thing with an alliance with Four Square (https://foursquare.com/americanexpress) do exactly what we pitched… Wonder where they got that idea from. This is now being proclaimed as THE Social Media case study for ROI.

The second concept was for CSR:

I came up with the concepts, (wrote the storyboard, AD etc) and dave lee did the sound and vid production… Still not the first time my ideas have ever been ripped off and no doubt won’t be the last too for that matter. (SICK).
