Virgin from The Box on Vimeo.

When passing through London Waterloo train station we’ve looked at the huge digital screen across platforms 7-11 (Britain’s largest digital sign) and dreamt of getting our work on it.

Well, this week we did it!

Virgin Media Business asked us to bring their concepts to life for the #VOOM national launch campaign and one of the screens it’s been displayed on includes London Waterloo.

Of course, being so proud of our latest creation we had to grab a couple of clips for THE BOX’s memory box.

Take a look for yourself.

We’re delighted that Microsoft involved us with their roadshow plans for 2012. We we’re tasked with creating the interactive kiosk software that showcased their products. Once development was complete the software was installed across multiple interactive stations which toured across the UK.

Users could take part in a multimedia quiz on the touch screen platforms and at the end of the quiz they were encouraged to provide personal information and contact details. At the end of each day the information was automatically compiled into a secure database for Microsoft to access.
