Again I must apologise for the lack of blog posts but this has been due to a very few hectic months of work and company promotion!! Some would say this is a great thing but means I have not had a chance to update our friends on recent work and the happenings within the Gravity offices.
Recent appearances on BBC Newsline, interviews on radio and with lots of coverage in the newspapers about us we are pleasantly surprised with the coverage and success of our partnership with Backspindle Game’s release of the licensed Sir Terry Pratchett boardgame Guards! Guards! Lots of late nights, plenty of coffee and office banter has kept us going and ultimately doing some nice work for our clients (we really like to call them our friends though!).
We have just completed some great work for Galgorm Resort & Spa‘s new Four Seasons Suite. Along with Chris Heaney the photographer, I had a busy day art directing a photoshoot at the the new suite. Chris did a great job and produced some great shots that were eventually used in a marketing campaign for the Four Seasons Suite.
Not only has Galgorm kept us very busy with the above, we have also completed their Xmas brochure and the marketing literature for Gillies Bar & Grill’s 5th Birthday….I had hoped to be attending but unfortunately sunnier climates will be taking me away!
As mention we recently had a lot of press coverage for being the Digital Partner for Backspindle Games whom have launched a licensed Sir Terry Pratchett boardgame. We were on BBC Newsline, the radio and in many papers, its probably as close as I will ever be to becoming a celebrity!!The website looks great if we say so ourselves and soon there will be an Android and iPhone App to compliment game play. Even if your not a Pratchett fan we highly recommend the game ( a perfect gift, Christmas is close by I am afraid to say!!) so check it out: www.guardsguards.com
Still working on lots of other web projects and recently our friends at Family Mediation NI were delighted when we just launched their website a couple of weeks ago. Feedback has been good, with great feedback / comments coming from other professional mediators in London.
With all the above work happening I needed a good drink! I headed to the The Spaniard Bar and then off to Muriels Cafe Bar were I was handsomely rewarded with some mouthwatering cocktails. Work as ever was never too far away and Janine asked if I could enhance her Facebook pages. With delight I said “yes!” and myself and the team set about implementing “reveal tabs” on both Facebook pages. When a user that does not like the page lands on either bar’s page, they are presented with a welcome page that reveals when “like” is clicked. We also hooked the pages up with Twitter feeds and its own TV channel and then set about creating a strategy for the bars. I promise if you like the pages that there will be some interesting competitions happening on the lead up to Christmas….
Enough about work your probably saying! Well the Gravity office team has had some fun in between with some nice overnight stays in Galgorm, a few gadget purchases (mainly iPads!!) and some surfing lessons! Kevin is not only a master of Karate he now thinks he is the next Kelly Slater.
I promise to have a new blog post again shortly as we have some great mobile App projects in the studio!
