Memory Lane...Sky Active & Sky Gamestar iTV UI (2006 and before...)


Just came across video capture of projects I worked on a lifetime ago (well not that long, pre-2006 but it feels like a lifetime). Sky Active and Sky Gamestar on the SkyTV interactive platform.

Sky Active was a video fronted interactive TV portal that linked you to all of Sky's interactive services, and Sky Gamestar was the interactive gaming platform featuring favourites such as the ever popular Beehive Bedlam and Who wants to be a Millionaire. Brilliant to work on it all that time ago...*sniffs*



Gold for Glee 'Cross-Media Campaign' at Promax UK 2012

The Glee Cross-Media Campaign

The Sky Creative 'Glee' Campaign team has been awarded Gold for the 'Best Cross-Media Campaign'. Fantastic. It's always great to win awards, but the reason I'm especially pleased with being part of this collaborative team is that integrating campaign work cross-media often doesn't work too well, has a bias to one media over another, or logistically runs out of control.

It takes a lot of people to work together to make a campaign of this size, in particular I would like to highlight the collaborative strategy work from DennyTu at Sky Creative who kept it together and made sure that all areas delivered a joined-up experience. This award shows that the cross-media campaign's at Sky Creative are working and the integration of all creative areas is essential for the future of campaigns.

Congratulations to everyone who worked on the campaign at Sky Creative and the Sky1 Digital Entertainment team!

Sky Creative | Glee & Treasure Island Campaigns

Here's a taster of some of the great integrated campaign work coming out of Sky Creative, my daytime home. As a Digital Art Director at Sky Creative I'd particularly like to add a big shout-out to all those who worked on the digital elements of these two projects.

In Glee, check out the Glee Twitter Visualiser and Yearbook, and in Treasure Island, check out the cool Aurasama augmented trailer...
