Icelab in 2015

By Jess Allison01 Feb 2016

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.

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.
