Andy Blackford Communications

I’d just like take a moment to tell you about a site I’ve just designed for Andy Blackford Communications. Andy is a gifted writer (and all-round fascinating bloke) that I’ve had the pleasure of working with on a number of projects, so I was delighted to be involved.

Training the makers and buyers of creative work.

The focus of the new site is on a series of short training courses that Andy has crafted to improve the performance of those who create marketing communications, and to sharpen the judgement of those who buy them.

I’d also recommend that you sign-up for Andy’s newsletter and get a free copy of his excellent book, The Hatchback of Votre Dame, a witty and often controversial look at marketing communications.

Built entirely in WordPress the site uses a bold but simple design and a striking black, grey and gold colour scheme. Why not take a quick look – for readers of a certain age that fact that Andy was the man behind the Umbongo commercials (included on the site) will be all you need to know…

TheWorldClock

Just a quick post to let you know that my latest app is out today – TheWorldClock.

TheWorldClock keeps track of the time in your friends’ & colleagues’ part of the world so you don’t have to. Add multiple clocks displaying different time zones and personalise them by renaming them to something more meaningful – like a friend, relative or client, so you’ll always know the best time to get in touch.

You can tell at a glance whether it’s a convenient time – if a clock is white it’s daytime, black it’s night.

If you’re interested, you can get a copy from the App Store here.

Chameleon Clock update

Just a quick update on Chameleon Clock, our new app that lets your iPad or iPhone disappear into the background…

Even though it’s a pretty simple app, it seems to have a hit a chord with some people, hitting no. 3 in the utilities chart, being favourably reviewed on Cult Of Mac and making their Must-Have Apps of the Week list.

We’ve also put a little blog together where you can get a look at the kind of thing Chameleon Clock does.

So, if you haven’t checked the app out yet, why not take a look?

Chameleon Clock

Our new app, Chameleon Clock, has just hit the App Store.

Why Chameleon Clock? The app uses the camera in the back of your iDevice to either a) sample the colour behind it or b) provide a live video feed to sit behind the time. The result? Your clock blends into your environment and all sorts of subtle effects are possible by changing the colour and/or transparency of the time display.

Here’s a link to the App Storelet me know what you think…

July 2012 calendar desktop wallpaper

Time for this month’s calendar wallpaper.

It’s a bit less abstract than usual – and no, I don’t know what it means (so I hope it’s not too offensive…). As per usual, just click the image above to get to the full size version…

Fabian Oefner creates beautiful magnetic photographs

I’ve never seen anything quite like these so I thought I’d share them with you.

Photographer Fabian Oefner creates these by mixing ferrofluid with water color and putting it into a magnetic field.

Check out his site or this feature from Wired to see and find out more or follow him on 500px.

ActionNotes 1.6

We’ve just released the latest update to our iPad app, ActionNotes.

This update features shiny new retina display graphics for all the New iPad owners out there – click on the image above to get a full sized look at just how big it is. We’ve also added a new automatic backup feature on top of our existing Dropbox backup support. This new feature works even if you don’t have an internet connection to make local backups on your iPad just incase anything goes wrong…

Plus, we’ve implemented a spellchecker and fixed a couple of bugs – and it’s at a special sale price at the moment, so grab a copy now if you haven’t already picked it up.
