Following on from the recent good news about the BIMA’s, we had some more ace news that the Famous People games we did for BBC Primary History have been awarded a bronze Lovie Award in the Education category. We’re in some esteemed company, judging by the winners list, so massive thanks to the Lovie folks for the award.
If you want to play the Famous People games then head on over here.
A recent flu campaign created by Rachael Boden, Sarah Parsons and Kevin McCann from Splinter for Liverpool Community Health NHS Trust (LCH) has gained national coverage from ‘The Drum‘ and ‘Click Liverpool‘.
We’re really chuffed to find out that we’ve been shortlisted for a BIMA award for the BBC Bitesize Max & Molly games we made last year. They must like Pablo as much as we do! Thanks BIMA-folks, massively appreciated!
The 20th September 2012 heralded Liverpool Community Health (LCH) NHS Trusts second Annual General Meeting (AGM).
After Splinter’s very own Kev McCann attended last years AGM, we at Splinter HQ decided upon the theme of ‘Amazing Feats’, after all, LCH perform so many of them, day in and day out.
No, It’s not a suggestion for you to roll your own, it’s a call to our very own Splinter Ringmaster (AKA Kev McCann) to cheer along one of our fave clients; Liverpool Community Health.
LCH will be applauding loudly to the ‘amazing feats’ of its staff and services, at today’s Annual General Meeting.
It’s a happy day in Splinter today as we celebrate our lovely Print Manager Kev’s coming of age. Apparently life begins at 40 (so says Chris anyway) but today it begins when we cut his 40th birthday battenberg decorated skillfully by Mr Jon “Cake Boss” Raffe.
Today, 1st June 2012, marks 15 years since Splinter Design first opened it’s doors back in 1997. Paul Musgrave has been quick to point out that he was running Splinter Graphics back in 1996, but it was 1997 that Paul and Chris formed the company as we know it today! (more…)
Hot on the heels of one big BBC games project, we have another one to tell you about! This time it was for BBC Schools and was a series of games based around 21 different famous people – ranging from the very well known such as Shakespeare, Dickens and Henry VIII right the way through to lesser-known unsung heroes of the past such as Mary Anning, and Mary Seacole! This is the project that has kept us locked away for the past 6 months, so I thought now was a good time to give you all the run-down as the games have just launched on the BBC Famous People site – accessed via the thumbnails on each famous person’s page.
Liverpool City Centre came to a standstill at the weekend with the arrival of the Sea Odyssey Giants.
Splinter HQ in Blundell Street saw the Giant Uncle saunter past the office to check if anyone was working on Saturday 21st April 2012. Luckily for us, Phil Matthews from Flamin Delux was on hand to capture the event on the camera!
