Future Experience Points 2016 is born!

In a joint initiative with Cambridge Regional College, we have been busy developing Future Experience Points (FXP) – a mobile games design and development competition for students from Year 9 – 13. The first year pilot of the coding jam will take place in 2016 with 20 schools and colleges across the region involved. FXP has been designed to raise aspirations of young people, allowing students to build valuable skills. We have secured industry involvement with the likes of Cambridge University Press and ARM among others. Watch this space!

Programmatic, curated and cultivated content and SEO – what should you invest in?

“If you approach digital advertising in the same way as you would print, you would consider audience type, cost, reach etc. of different advertising spaces and weigh up which locations are likely to have the best ROI.”

Our Digital Marketing Executive, Hannah, recently commented on the different types of online advertising and its latest buzzword – ‘programmatic’. Take a read of the feature on Digital Doughnut to see what type of digital advertising could work best for your business.
