Online Radicals

Running throughout 2011, Liverpool City of Radicals is a programme of exhibitions, debates and events looking at radical Liverpool – past, present and future.

The website, designed and produced by Splinter, has just gone live. Whether you are left-leaning or not, give the site a visit at www.cityofradicals.co.uk.

Clwydian Range brand launches

The new brand for the Clwydian Range, developed by Splinter in partnership with Hi-Clarity Communications, was launched by Councillor Carolyn Thomas today at the Afonwen Centre.

The resources we have produced are designed to clearly define the Clwydian Range offering and raise awareness of all the area has to offer visitors. To check out more detail on the work we have done check out the Clwydian Range case study.

It has already been noted how useful the Sense of Place Toolkit has been for local businesses – giving them easy access to the words and pictures they need to promote themselves and the Clwydian Range.

Olympic success story

baz-blog-2

We’ve just heard some great news that Splinter team member Barry has successfully qualified for the 2012 London Olympic Games! Huge congratulations to him – he’ll be competing in the synchronised diving category, so make sure you tune in Sunday 29 July – Saturday 11 August 2012. We have a feeling he’ll be the only web developer competing at the Games, so please post any words of encouragement here in the comments. Best of luck Barry!

Splinter MD circa 1992

Whilst trawling through the Splinter archives we stumbled across this little gem… Chris our MD’s self-produced album from way back in 1992. Nowadays it’s more shirt-and-jumper combos than dreads-and-beats combos!

the Bluecoat website

We have developed a new website for the country’s oldest arts centre, the Bluecoat. The launch co-incided with the streaming of its popular Bed-In project, which draws on John Lennon’s actions for peace.

For those who don’t know… the Bluecoat is a restored historic building in the centre of Liverpool and its community mixes artists of all types and encourages connections between audiences, participants and artists. It uses its spaces to display talent from all creative disciplines, including visual art, music, literature, dance, and live art.

The site we have produced is clean and practical, allowing viewers to personalise the way content is displayed when they first arrive. It features a wide range of media and functionality including an in-depth events listing, online ticket booking, blogs and forums, panoramic views of the galleries and historic buildings, showcases for the creative community and of course the Bed-In stream.
