We tried our damnedest to create something invisible to the human eye but visible through a smartphone camera. Did we succeed? Read about the experiment here: The Smartphone Phenakistoscope Experiment
The debate around the benefits of mobile web vs app is always an interesting, and often heated, one. One clear benefit that apps have over web is that they support push notifications and so offer a way to reconnect with users when they’re not actively engaged. Mobile web does not have this benefit, because mobile […]
We’re living in an age where mobile usage is exceeding that of desktop, where we can all be developers and hackers, and where brands have a solution for mobile – developing mobile-optimised websites or mobile apps – that’s becoming standard practice. With a number of options currently on the market to support the development of cross-platform apps, without […]
As of today, Google are going to use their algorithm to reward websites that are mobile-friendly. So if your site is not well optimised for mobile, Google will punish you by ranking you lower in mobile search results. The number of web visits on mobiles is growing fast and will soon overtake desktop, so this […]
Last month our Account Director Will circulated this interesting Ad Age article which discusses how the Internet of Things (IoT) will move us beyond Big Data and into Intimate Data – the hyper-contextual and super-personal information about you and me that can be derived or inferred from our smart watches, connected home and (in the future) clever clothes. The way author […]
The size of smartphones seems to have gone full circle, and the current trend for super-size screens makes the thought of a dainty Nokia 3310 well and truly a thing of the past.

Our ADT integrated campaign site was awarded Gold last week at the MMA Smarties in the UK Mobile Website category and we’re chuffed to bits.

We used locational data to serve an arresting infographic: your street, and its […]
Introducing Movement Monitor, our new mobile research programme. Every two months we ask a panel of 300 smartphone users aged between 18-55 about what they’re doing on their phones. These findings give us useful insights into mobile behaviour and how it fits within users’ lifestyles, their media consumption and the general world around them. […]
Connectedness. It’s an expectation. There was a time when we just used to insist that our mobiles, tablets and computers were ‘connected’. Blimey, there was even a phobia coined for the fear of being without mobile signal. Ok, so we’re still not there with an omni-present data connection – the Bedford train line into St. Pancras is […]

Last month, with Movement’s fifth birthday dancing on the horizon, we thought it’d be only right to celebrate with a company day out.

As one departs another one enters. Today is fellow creative Adnans last day, but we also had a new arrival in the form of an urban fox. Out of nowhere it arrived, without invitation, in our back alley. After a short spell of confusion Dr Fox found some shrubs to hide behind and there it […]
With the eagerly anticipated announcements from Apple out of the way, now’s a good opportunity to reflect on some of the things reported, and what we can glean from them. 1. Apple recognises the encroaching threat from Android Apple used to be fairly and squarely in the premium end of the mobile market – […]
User Experience (UX) and a UX-driven approach to digital has been a growing trend over recent years. Driven by a number of factors such as consumer’s increasing uptake of digital (and peripheral) devices, the push for richer and more engaging experiences, trail-blazers in the area of intuitive design (such as Apple), innovation in and the […]
There was an interesting article in FACT last week about a club in Berlin starting to trial GTI (Geo Track Identifier) that allows rights organisations to get a better idea of what DJ’s are playing in the club and then distribute rights to producers whose tracks are being played. This got me thinking about the […]
Last week Facebook paid the measly sum of $2bn for Oculus VR, the makers of the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset. That’s just over a tenth of WhatsApp, two Instagrams and as many as forty TweetDecks. That said, in any man’s book, it’s a lot of money. But what have they paid for? We know Zuckerberg has a fair amount of […]

Creative Partner Mark Freeman writing in The Guardian: Is mobile really ‘first’? “As a marketing and design concept, does the idea of ‘mobile-first’ miss the point…?”

Whilst we’re chuffed that so many mobisites are popping up these days, experiences can still be hit or miss. Tim’s been musing over who’s getting it wrong, and who’s getting it right. Have a look at how he interrogates the best and worst mobisite executions in Retail Week’s Good Shop Bad Shop column. For my […]
It’s probably the most asked question in mobile. So, in a hopeful bid to stop being asked, Mark gives his opinion to Brand Republic. The ‘experts’ say mobile is a more mature channel now, which makes us agency types wonder why the first question most brands ask us is still ‘can we have a cool […]
Isn’t he lovely.

We now have a new pink door, thanks to our man @adnanlalani.

After some serious high-fiving when the news broke that Movement had been shortlisted for the Best Integrated Campaign Led by Mobile Cannes Lions Award for our Coca-Cola Move To The Beat work, we decided we’d better send someone out to the festival pretty sharpish. Mr Clive Baker stepped up and we booked him on the […]
We were asked to attend Google’s GetMo expo recently, and asked to bring an exhibition stand and do a 2-minute presentation. When preparing, we hit that familiar dilemma of how to stand out and make our appearance more memorable than the rest. Whilst umming and ahhing over tea and scrumptious homemade peppermint creams, courtesy of […]
