Billington Cartmell, Brave and Closer Live :: Technical Director
I was appointed Technical Director of Billington Cartmell (www.bcl.co.uk), their sister adverting agency, Brave (www.brave.co.uk) and their experiential arm, Closer (www.closerlive.co.uk) in January 2012. The group of companies between them represent a phenomenal array of leading clients including Carlsberg, Panasonic, Sennheiser, Philips, Unilever, Kraft, GSK, Lexus, Morrisons and Ernst & Young.
Ecover :: Experiential Event R&D
Whilst working at Brave (part of the Billington Cartmell Group) I was asked to investigate and advise on the best way to allow two handheld Ecover Disinfection Sprays with ‘pull to release’ handles to be used as both game and content controls for an state of the art exhibition stand at a global event. After investigation into Arduinos and similar standalone hardware our decision was to use a midi interface with the amount the user pulls the trigger translating into the amount of left or right orientation required to navigate the content or aim at targets in the game. Factors like health and safety and ease of relocation and build strength were also challenges that we had to technically surmount.
