An estimated 10,000 people attended the HTC Smithfield Nocturne throughout the day to enjoy a packed program of cycling entertainment. Now in its fourth year, the Smithfield Nocturne has gone from strength to strength. In partnership with HTC and the London Festival of Architecture, 2010 saw a few new twists to the tried-and-tested format.

Cakes, Cakes, Cakes!

Nicola Hall’s new-look ‘Hall of Cakes’ website has been launched!
Built on the structure of our “home grown” CMS system “STEM”, we are proud to say that the site is now live, featuring larger than life full screen takeover imagery and custom lightbox features. The site is fully controlled by STEM, a collaboration between Skyskraper and the development talents of our very own Dan Woodroffe.

Hall of Cakes is making great headway on the search rankings leader-board too, this was one of the fundamental requests from the client during briefing. We are now looking at packaging up “STEM” as an off-the-shelf CMS, so watch this space for more info…

Looks good on an iPhone too!

Thanks for all your support!

Many thanks to everyone who supported our digital DNA planting, tree loving “growmythoughts” campaign.  It’s proved a great success and we are planning a follow up iPhone/iPad app, as well as a possible console DLC/launch of some sort, in the future.

Data was harvested during the campaign (see image within this post).  We were most impressed with the great revisit success rate, as well as an average time spent on the site of well over a minute!

The site will remain live, users can continue to monitor their plants growth, or pass the good word on and continue to build the seed community!
