It’s been a long time coming, but I’m now making the big jump to being my own boss and the master of my own destiny. I really couldn’t be happier. Five years at magneticNorth and two-and-a-half at LOVE have been simply marvellous, but as of Monday November the 8th, I shall be freelance and proud – off into the big wide world as a one man band.
Oooh look. Much toil, blood, sweat, tears and seemingly never-ending meetings have finally culminated in the all new LOVE. site!
A lot of people really didn’t like the old one, but sod them – we did. After all, it was funny, it won awards, it got us the business we were after and acquitted itself admirably, now bowing out gracefully for the new generation to take over.
And this time, we’ve taken a different tack. Firstly, the work’s all there up front. Big, bold and colourful. Then there are loads of new videos and web walkthroughs, not least of which is LOVE’s brand new retro brand film, made by our very talented video elves. And thanks in no small part to very recent advances at Vimeo, all this should look as pretty on your iPhone or iPad as it does on your big work screen.
United Underground 2 was an event held on the theme of conflict, so we encouraged people to show their support for peace by giving two fingers to war with the classic “V” for victory gesture. Their poses were displayed on a huge screen behind the performers, in a constantly-changing demonstration of unity.
My name’s Adam and this is palmerama.tv, my crib. By day, I'm an Interaction Designer/AS3 Developer, freelancing in sunny Manchester. I also write words for magazines and mess around with Flash, HTML5 <canvas>, AIR and much more. Some of the other things I do can be found in these pages.
