MozFest is an annual festival held by the Mozilla Foundation to promote collaboration and an open, global web. This year was Cyber-Duck’s fifth year participating and we hosted two back-to-back workshops. Here are the details of my day.
Untangle the Web is a popular monthly event exploring a wide variety of themes relevant to London’s burgeoning tech community. Senior User Experience Designer Neil Dawson spoke to their intimate and attentive audience last Thursday at Google Campus London.
Business Media Insights is a one-day conference focused on issues facing B2B information, publishing and media organisations. Cyber-Duck Development Director Sylvain Reiter was invited to share his search engine optimisation (SEO) expertise.
BIMA’s annual Digital Day event (D-Day for short) is a nationwide initiative that links schools with creative professionals from across the UK. For the second year running Cyber-Duck helped students from Bushey Meads School develop their concepts for apps and Internet of Things projects.
The Cyber-Duck team was thrilled to win a UX UK Award for the ‘Best Transactional Experience’ for our work with mydlc! Rewarding those who take pride in offering the best possible experience for users, UX UK even made the project a finalist for a further award, the ‘Best Effect on Business Goals’. Our win showcases the success of mydlc, a bespoke customer payment portal that simplifies a complex transaction to great effect for their users.
The Ducks were delighted with our success at the Wirehive 100 Award Ceremony last week. Joining the best in digital in the striking setting of England’s largest vineyard, Cyber-Duck were recognised as the 13th top agency in the South. With our Strategy Manager Siji announced as the Account Handler of the Year, and Production Lead Craig highly commended for Creative, the night showcased our fantastic team.
We’re happy to reveal that Cyber-Duck has been shortlisted for a UX UK Award for our work with dlc! Aspiring to recognise excellence in user-focused digital design, the nomination (amidst tough competition) recognises the strategy and success of mydlc, the bespoke customer payment portal launched just before last Christmas.
The fourth annual Duckies Awards party took place last month at our Elstree headquarters. The extended Cyber-Duck family, including our clients and suppliers, gathered to celebrate outstanding student design—and the company’s ninth birthday!
We’re happy that the Cyber-Duck team has been shortlisted for not one (or even two) but FOUR Wirehive 100 Awards this year! As proud winners of the ‘Best Use of Tech’ category in 2013, we’re up for the double this year for our Need a Property project. With further nominations for Creative, Account Handler and Techie of the Year, we’re excited to see the brilliant work of key team members being recognised.
Production Director Matt Gibson spoke to London’s Untangle the Web community last week about the delicate responsibility of managing designer-client relationships.
