Last year a loveable, deer chasing Labrador named Fenton bounded back into our lives in glorious, re-mastered 4G enabled Technicolor. And it seems that we weren’t the only ones fond of his antics: we’re chuffed to announce that ‘Fenton, 4GEE Remaster’ has been nominated for a Webby Award in the Video Remixes/Mash ups category.
Back in the UK and fully recovered from Hackney House Austin, Poke’s very own Nick Farnhill has provided us with the lowdown from some of the most exciting conversations from SXSW. From hardware start-ups, Google Glass, and innovative apps; Nick has provided us with an insider summary of the best in techy awesomeness and creativity from this years SXSW.
We’re a creative bunch at Poke, and like to make sure our office is full of inspiring visual things to keep us inspired and our minds ticking over with fresh ideas. We’re also the fortunate inhabitants of a great office space, which provides us with the opportunity to share it with emerging artists. That’s why if you’ve dropped by the Poke London reception in the past few weeks you’ll notice that we’ve been playing host to the work of Peter Franc; a photographer whose contemporary, colour prints pay homage to the abstract, looming beauty of Eastern European monuments. And Chrysa Koukoura; an illustrator whose intricate, delicate drawings are inspired by British wildlife.
