I don’t know about you, but I’m spoiled. I get to work with incredibly talented product developers in small multidisciplinary teams. Over time, we’ve developed a specific way of working together which is fast, collaborative and efficient. We’re in each others pockets throughout the process and it’s a blast. Sometimes I take for granted how productive this way of working is. Inevitably though, we sometimes need to work with external development partners. It’s a brilliant option to have, but undoubtedly comes with new challenges.
Last year we worked with Contagious Communications to re-imagine and re-design their online business – a project that culminated in the launch of their collaborative research platform I/O. Last week, Contagious told us that YOY sales are up 82 per cent following the launch, so we thought now was a good time to share some details of our work.
It's required a lot of secrecy here at Made by Many to keep it under wraps, but we're excited that the new ITV homepage went live earlier this week. Part of a complete rebrand of ITV, this has been a great opportunity to highlight the depth and breadth of ITV's content - showcasing the best of ITV right now whilst simultaneously reinforcing the broadcaster's new brand position: at the heart of popular culture.
The homepage is a result from collaboration between Made by Many and the in-house design and development teams at ITV.
The clock's have gone back, the nights are drawing in, the mince pies are on the shelves and Movember is here again. Yes, that time of the year when men all around the UK and the rest of the world sprout hair on their top lips in aid of raising funds and awareness for men's health - specifically prostate and testicular cancer.

In March we launched Holler Gram, an app that turns your iPad into a glowing sign and simultaneously tweets into a predefined hashtag. It was perfect for conferences and we only did it as a bit of fun - which is why we are amazed that it's now been downloaded 45,000 times.
It's still being used by people all over the world and of the many fascinating uses people have found for it, the most humbling is from Australia where a group of teachers got in contact with us to say they'd been using the app to teach deaf children.
