Yesterday we got word that our work with Trespa International has been selected as Official Honoree in the 17th Annual Webby Awards, in the Corporate Communications category.
A new visual identity, strong use of photography, merging corporate and product information in a 10-language, responsive, cross platform website, replacing 11 websites. Have a look yourself at Trespa.com.
Congratulations to Trespa! It’s been really great to work on this with the Trespa team and with our partner Solar initiative. Thanks!
When announced last year, Google Glass seemed to be mostly about augmented reality – getting extra information via that funny little ‘lens’ in front of your eye. But now the built-in camera has become the star of all the promotional films. So do we really want to walk around with that camera on our heads? Will we all be hanging out in cafés wearing Glass within a year? How useful is it anyway? And will Glass be able to compete with iWatch?
From this day forward ILUMY will write regularly about digital innovation on Frankwatching.com. Check out the first article about Google Glass: Mag ik bij je zijn?
ILUMY has moved house! Our new working spaces are found on the Rokin, a street belonging to Amsterdam’s historic city center, in a monumental building. With 440 square metres of creative technology space, including two meeting rooms and a lounge area, our new offices look out onto one of the most challenging building projects of Amsterdam – the Noord/Zuid metro line. Innovation is now on our doorstep and we are more inspired than ever to break new ground and get creative!
On Tuesday 2 October the Netherlands Institute for Human Rights (College voor de Rechten van de Mens) was opened in Utrecht, in the presence of Queen Beatrix and the UN High Commissioner on Human Rights, Ms Navanethem Pillay.
At the same time we launched their new website, mensenrechten.nl. The new online presence embodies the broader scope of the Institute, formerly the “Commission for equal treatment (CGB)”, going from ‘one’ to ‘all 30’ human rights. The website is perfectly accessible for all Dutch citizens, professionals, elderly people and the visually impaired.
All people in all countries can benefit from a national institute promoting and protecting their human rights, even in The Netherlands.
Ilumy’s carve Zapaday, the open new calendar, wins Accenture Innovation Award (Information). No surprise for them, they can see the future.
Do you take proper care of yourself? With LVT PR we created a smart test to check if you do. Don’t you? PGGM can help.
How much money would you trust to one bank? How much wealth would you keep in one type of asset? For a leading European Family office we developed a ground breaking financial reporting platform and app: the iAssetMonitor. It provides families and asset managers with insights into their overall financial position across many assets and banks.
We transformed the usually boring .pdf asset management and investment reports in to a client friendly, sparkling interactive app. Ask your Family Office!
Talking about development of websites this is one of our favorites. The minimalistic design adjusts itself automatically to your device. Because inspiring people with images is really important to Trespa we made sure that every image acts liquid and will always fill your browser.
At the moment we are also working on a new feature. With ‘Trespa Studio’ you can create and share your personal canvas. Inspire others with your creation or compare all the different colors Trespa offers. T-studio is planned for this October.
ILUMY was invited for Google’s BigTent in The Hague on freedom of expression online, co-organised by Free Press Unlimited and Google. For our work on an online platform for grassroots activism in the Arab region and for our work on Zapaday, the open news agenda. Tonight we will meet Hillary (Clinton), Eric (Schmidt, from Google), Uri (indeed, Rosenthal), writer Joris Luyendijk and (for the third time this week) Tarik Nesh-Nash, an inspiring social entrepreneur and democracy activist from Morocco. We’ll keep you posted.
Innovation is disruptive change that makes people happy. We love innovators.
