Running in the Halls

Record breaking

We teamed up with Namco Bandai and The Gadget Show to break the Guinness World Record for the world's largest architectural projection mapped game, featuring the world's favourite and most recognised retro gaming character, Pac-Man.

Process

Our working process is flexible to the requirements of each project. Although no two projects are the same, we have established patterns of work which will help ensure your project gets delivered on time, to budget and to an agreed specification. A typical project usually goes through seven stages: exploration, definition, development, testing, deployment, support and consultation.

Exploration

The beginning of a project is perhaps the most important stage of the process. Exploration means that we ask you the right questions and get all the information we need to put the project in a broad context.

Definition

Once we’ve analysed the project requirements we develop a very detailed work order. It lists the estimated timescales and exact costs. This is where we agree on what gets done and what we require from you or any third parties.

Development

The development process for each project varies significantly but we use a combination of techniques and best practices and project management methodologies to make sure things are kept on track and on brief.

Testing & Deployment

During development, after development and before launch we constantly test to make sure any issues and inconsistencies are ironed out before your users see or interact with anything.

Support, Training & Consultation

The support work we do is broad and encompasses everything from updating, developing and refining your product to deal with new business directions, to training you on how to get the most out of what you have commissioned. We use focus groups, group brainstorming, live prototyping as well as direct user behaviour observation to consult on future development work and the evaluation and refinement of existing work.

Contact us

The first step to realising your project is to pick up the phone and talk to us. Or you could drop us an email with some brief information and ask us to get in touch.
