Icelab in 2015
2015 will go down in history as the year the US legalised gay marriage. When NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft arrived at Pluto. China built an island. The Force Awakened. And the world finally got real on climate change.
But enough of these trivialities. At Icelab we had some exciting news of our own:
Designer Jasmin Wong finally gave us representation in Sydney.
Developer Daniel Nitsikopoulos joined the Canberra team.
We upped our beard game hiring Dylan Wolff, who is now desk-hopping around the world.
And Michael Troy came aboard, working from sunny Newcastle before decamping to Chiang Mai.
We delivered multiple touchscreen interactives for the Royal Australian Mint’s award-winning factory floor redevelopment.
Designed and built the new digital home of The Wheeler Centre.
Created an explorable archive, two iPad displays, and a fascinating interactive about Hans Overbeck’s ant collection, for the National Museum of Australia’s exhibition, The Home Front: Australia during the First World War.
Brought the Magna Carta online and built a touchscreen interactive.
Launched a digital radio station for kids.
Designed and built a new site for Books Kinokuniya.
The Icelab team spent some quality time together in the Victorian countryside.
Max Wheeler launched a baby named Felix, now one of the cutest things on the internet.
We helped the Australian Public Service Commission with their State of the Service report.
Revamped Behind the Lines for its 2015 edition.
We continued development on the APVI Solar mapping project, building a tool to chart and compare PV performance across Australia.
Ran Railscamp in Canberra, and crafted a little site to promote the event.
Helped the University of Melbourne launch their Pursuit platform.
And continued to improve the Ticketscout platform and ticket scanning application.
Phew. What a year! And yet it doesn’t seem like 12 months since the last roundup. We must be getting old… but more on that in February.
