It’s official! Lots more awards to come hopefully.
Great to see so many head honchos of great agencies preaching the agile gospel.
After 7 months of blood, sweat and tears I am proud to announce WEIR+WONG’s involvement with chromeweblab.com.
In the final phase of this Poverty Over Infographic Case Study, not only were we delivering the actual flash interactive infographic, but we were finishing off the rest of the website build as well.
For the build of this Infographic we worked in weekly sprints. Each week I presented the development work to both the Agency and the Client at the same time
Our Design stage was to be filled with rapid prototyping, with all members of the team around the same table. No distractions, focused on the questions we had posed from the ‘Think’ stage (How was it going to look? How would we represent the data? How far could we push the tech?).
Yesterday we launched povertyover.christianaid.org.uk. It was a fantastic, yet challenging project to work on and over the next few days I’ll be describing the craft of producing this interactive infographic. I say craft because I truly believe that is what we do. We take an idea, whittle it, shape it and fashion it into something that makes sense in the digital arena. Something that the target audience will take meaning from and hopefully – share it with their friends – which was the goal of this website.
We use a working style that allows for true dedication. Completely dedicated resource.
42 days, 17 hours and 20 seconds. A conservative estimate of the amount of time I’ve wasted over the years hunting high and low, trying to identify a specific font.
I seemed to miss this the first time around but have just found Nike Chalkbot whilst perusing the 2010 Webby Awards nominees.

I just read an interesting article over on lifehacker about putting the brakes on ideas at certain times during the production process.
Here’s a collection of some great agile books, in no particular order.
There are two sorts of people in this world. Listmakers and people and who don’t get things done.
