An estimated 10,000 people attended the HTC Smithfield Nocturne throughout the day to enjoy a packed program of cycling entertainment. Now in its fourth year, the Smithfield Nocturne has gone from strength to strength. In partnership with HTC and the London Festival of Architecture, 2010 saw a few new twists to the tried-and-tested format.

Cakes, Cakes, Cakes!

Nicola Hall’s new-look ‘Hall of Cakes’ website has been launched!
Built on the structure of our “home grown” CMS system “STEM”, we are proud to say that the site is now live, featuring larger than life full screen takeover imagery and custom lightbox features. The site is fully controlled by STEM, a collaboration between Skyskraper and the development talents of our very own Dan Woodroffe.

Hall of Cakes is making great headway on the search rankings leader-board too, this was one of the fundamental requests from the client during briefing. We are now looking at packaging up “STEM” as an off-the-shelf CMS, so watch this space for more info…

Looks good on an iPhone too!

The sowing has started on the growmythoughts.com terrain.

Over the next four weeks we’d like you to join us as part of a unique experience.  We are evoking the rules of digital mother nature, allowing each visitor to plant a digital seed and watch it grow into a unique tree.

We’ll need to generate some DNA from your name and comment text, so please click here and fill in the seedling panel.  Then click the PLANT button to release your seed.

Every tree is unique, so get planting.  Others will follow, and before you know it we’ll have a collective of trees planted by like minded people.

growmythoughts.com – plant a digital seed with skyskraper

We are launching a self-promoting and unique advertising campaign to bridge the gap between print and digital media using a social network mechanism delivered via an online experience.

Launching on March 19th 2010, plant a digital seed at growmythoughts.com, and watch it grow over the period of a month. Skyskraper’s specifically designed algorithm will determine the DNA make-up of each seed, giving it growing characteristics like how big the plant will end up, what colour its flowers will be and how many branches it will have. All DNA information gathered will be taken from the planters email address.

Keep an eye on growmythoughts.com and skyskraper for more – and get ready to plant your digital seed…
