iMeet revolutionises conference calls, by putting a face, to a name – blankly staring at the speakerphone is now a thing of the past.
unit9 collaborated on this project by working on the front end of this new tool, establishing the information architecture and designing the user interface. We then used an iterative series of creative prototypes to streamline the collaboration with MUH·TAY·ZIK | HOF·FER and the development team at PGI to help realise this revolutionary new tool for sharing ideas.

PopSecret popcorn make organising a movie night easier. Simply pick your mood, film genre and audience and let the kernels offer up their movie suggestions. As soon as you make a choice the site helps you quickly create a movie night event on Facebook.
The website content was generated by integrating 3 separate data feeds. Screenplay for the trailers, IMDB for the cast, synopsis and rating of the films and Jinni, a specialised search engine which applies complex algorithms to suggest movie selections.

McDonalds Flavourhood Facebook App

The Flavourhood is not just a Facebook App. It’s a pledge of allegiance. It’s a line in the sand. It’s where you say what your favourite food is at McDonald’s and say it loud.

My first Tech Lead project was a small Facebook App for McDonalds. Lots of client communication and relying on external companies and people. It all went relatively smoothly, but unfortunately I wasn’t there to finish it due to family problems.

What's the Real Cost? Image

This interactive experience questions the status quo of the American health care system, and aims to provide consumers with knowledge and tools that will allow them to participate in the movement to reign in health care costs.
It comments on the current status of the health care system, through a highly entertaining and intellectually stimulating experience built around five diverse microsite experiences. It encourages the public to ask questions and use social networking tools to join-in and make the debate louder.

I didn’t have much to do with this one apart from having some code I’d previously written used on it. I also did some updates and bug fixes on it after it went live. I use it simply as an example of the merits of broadcasting your work.

I did a little test of some coded spirals animating and put it on the unit9 intranet. A couple of days later Christian Etter, the Interactive Director on What’s the Real Cost, sent me an email asking if he could use the spirals for the project. Click here to see the tests I did.

Comcast Town Image

Users design their ideal Comcast crib. Then, they fine-tune it and start to accrue currency. And finally, they engage in the world full-on.
Personalization is the key. We designed an interactive environment where users can select, buy, change layout, and make up their room as a reflection of themselves. Residents can even add a note to each item of they have. So that the visitors can glean more of the resident’s personality.

Unfortunately I didn’t have the pleasure of working on this project full time. I coded a couple of elements and did some updates and bug fixes over a few months. My claim to fame is that I picked the colour used for the ‘Centurion’ user rank. Small, but I got a kick out of it.

BBC Gardening – Pests and Disease Identifier

This was an update to the original pests and disease identifier that was previously done by unit9. My role was to perform the update and be in contact with the client.

The original project was AS2, was before the time of unit9 using SVN, and was completely timeline based. To make matters worse, the transitions between sections were all in one incredibly long timeline. The updates were to add a new section, add and remove some links, and to change some copy.

Heineken - Know the Signs Image

“Know the Signs” is part of the “Enjoy Heineken Responsibly”™ marketing plan through which Heineken aims to provide comprehensive information about the advantages and the disadvantages of its products in order to facilitate a balanced consumer choice.
unit9 collaborated with TV production company Outsider to set up the interactive logic and also assisted in the shoot of a bar under surveillance, which provides for alternative realities at certain key moments. We created a strong visual identity – a contemporary and fun approach to deliver the underlying message of responsible drinking.

There is a great post on viralblog about the campaign.
