Bluecadet-designed Counterspill, the world's first site to aggregate the history and impact of all major natural energy disasters around the world, has won two Interactive Media Awards! The site won "Best in Class" in the "Energy" category and in the "Natural Environment / Green" category with impressive scores of 481 and 485, respectively.
The Philly Museums and Tech Meetup gathered in an intimate group at the Athenaeum on Thursday night to get a tour. It was a chance to see the ways an institution can capture its visitors' interest and allow them to interact. Here's a hint, it's not necessarily through the latest touch screen technology.
The prestigious design publication Communication Arts featured Bluecadet in a glowing eight-page studio profile. Bluecadet is one of only nine interactive studios to ever be featured in the design magazine, and we're alongside some incredibly well-respected firms like R/GA, Barbarian Group, Big Spaceship, and Firstborn.
We’re excited to welcome Aaron Miller, our new Producer and Interactive Technology Specialist, to Bluecadet. He boasts an impressive interactive background, and real project management chops. How he got to Bluecadet is a multimedia-studded road. Check out his artwork, installations and interactives.
We took the opportunity this summer to grab a talented Tyler student and force him to draw things for us. See a showcase of his impressive work.
Bluecadet is thrilled to announce the addition of designer Aaron Richardson to our team. Though he’s only been with us for a few short weeks, he’s already got a full plate, so we thought we’d take this time out to show you a little of what made him special enough to snap up in the first place. Cue the image roll.
Bluecadet hosted the inaugural Philadelphia Museums and Technology (#PhillyMuseTech) group get-together in our offices, along with co-organizer Aaron Miller. At first we were attempting to somehow meld Cinco de Mayo and Museums & Technology (since the meetup happened to take place on the 5th), but that idea easily melted away once the group got together. Despite the Dos Equis and tortilla chips, Museums were obviously on everyone’s mind.
The Bluecadet team is heading across the border to our Northern Neighbor this weekend. Josh will be in Toronto at Hot Docs, the world’s largest documentary Film Festival (check it out on Twitter @HotDocs). He’s going for docXchange, an interactive documentary film-financing workshop.
