Code in the News Oct 2017

Over the last few months, we’ve not only been busy producing the usual great work for our clients but also getting out and about sharing our ideas and best practice with the wider world. Here’s a round-up of what’s been going on here at Code lately.

Back in June, one of our longest-standing client Hillarys talked to Mobile Marketing about how we’ve helped ensure their website’s properly optimised for mobile.

In July, we hosted a [product thinking](smb://server.code/Code/6.Templates and Assets/Brilliant Never Stops Brand Assets/Brand Assets)-themed event in collaboration with Optimizely. We welcomed representatives from brands such as the Co-op, the BBC, BUPA and Manchester United, who heard from speakers including Leanne Fyffe and Georgina McCann from Missguided, Peter Young from Mediacom and our own Matt Lacey and Jamie Goodwin. Matt’s insights were later shared by Marketing Communication News and Digital Doughnut.

In other news from July, we released a new Manchester-focussed version of The Higher Lower Game for Forever Manchester, which was covered by sites including Entirely North West and Bdaily. The original version of the game was also featured in Wired as ‘App of the month’.

The same month, our refreshed brand identity, which was created by MERó, made headlines in The Drum, where it was named ‘Creative work of the week’. And our MD Tony temporarily took the reins at Prolific North to write The Wrap.

Heading into August, the Code Velo team were all geared up to take part in The Christie 100km. We went on to raise over £2,300 for this very worthy cause. In the same spirit of giving back, we hosted the first Street Support Network Raising Bee in September, which received coverage in both The Drum and Entirely Tech.

And our most recent bit of good news is that we’ve been shortlisted for Prolific North’s Inspired Spaces North 2017 award.
