Slideshare presentations of the week: HTML 5

Inspired by Oli's post on his experiment with his Instagram photos of our roof terrace and HTML 5 Canvas, this week's presentations are all about HTML 5.

First, Christian Heilmann, web evangelist at Mozilla in London, apoke about HTML 5 and how it is going to play a key role in the web of tomorrow at the Web2Day conference in Nantes, France this month.

HTML5 and the web of tomorrow!

Fun with html 5 canvas

Since we moved in to our lovely new offices at Diespeker Wharf at the end of last year I’ve been taking advantage of our roof terrace - sadly I’m a smoker. Whilst blackening my lungs I started taking photographs (using Instagram) of view down the canal, for no particular reason other than the view being splendid (and a smattering of boredom!).


Wim Crouwel – A graphic odyssey

Wim Crouwel - exhibition

Over the weekend I finally went along to the Design Museum in Shad Thames to have a look around the retrospective exhibition for Dutch typographer and graphic design icon Wim Crouwel.

Spanning a career over 60 years, the exhibition highlights Crouwel’s functional and rigorously modernist principles towards design across posters, corporate identities, typeface and exhibition design.


The future of the supermarket (and possibly everything else)

We've been looking at using barcodes for a small research project. I've haven't been too interested in the whole qr codes that open a web page on your phone thing, as it seems a lot of effort for low value result. But this service proposition from Tesco (in it's South Korean guise) is quite awe inspiring. Say hello to  advertising as a service platform.



Made by Many is making news at ITV

Dear readers, 

We’re delighted to join ITV in announcing that we will be working together to define a new (and radically different) news, sport and weather proposition for online and on demand. 
We’ve been working with Robin Pembrooke’s online team at ITV since November and have hugely enjoyed collaborating with such an intelligent and committed bunch of people. The news, sport and weather project is a fantastic opportunity to create a truly digitally native news service that plays across broadcast, web, mobile and connected TV.
