383 Project shortlisted for Digital Agency of the Year

383 Project, has been shortlisted for Digital Agency of the Year 2011 at the DADI Awards.

DADI are asking the industry to vote for who they feel deserves this iconic title, if you think we do, please click here to vote for us.

It has been a fantastic year so far for everyone at 383 Project and being shortlisted for such an award has made it even better, i’m sure winning the title of “Digital Agency of the Year 2011” would be one of the top highlights of the year for everyone.

A big thanks to all of 383’s clients, friends and peers for helping us to get this far in the process.

Magic Bean for Mac

I have been busy over the past month or so working on Magic Bean for Mac. A Mac version of my iOS app for Beanstalk.

Good news, it is now available on the Mac App Store! The desktop version of the iOS app focuses on deployments allowing you to complete a deployment in fewer steps straight from your Macs Status Bar.

Find out more about Magic Bean for Mac on the Magic Bean site.

iOS Conferences

This week sees me at two iOS conferences. I’ll be at updateConf in Brighton before heading back to Birmingham for a quick pit stop before setting off for iOSDevUK in Aberystwyth. Thanks goes to 383 Project for the tickets to both conferences as well as the time to get to both in one week.

I’ll be posting a couple of blog posts on the 383 Project site over the course of the week. Keep an eye on the blog here, I’ll also post links to the posts on this blog.

Magic Bean coming to Mac!

Recently I have been working away on Magic Bean for iOS v1.4 which is coming along nicely. A set of brand new features will be hitting the App Store soon.

I’ve taken a short break from that to work on Magic Bean for Mac which will allow Beanstalk users to deploy sites right from their Mac’s Status Bar. It is coming along nicely and will be hitting the Mac App Store soon. If you want to be notified when it is available simply sign up for the Mailing List here. You will also find a little sneak peak at what Magic Bean for Mac looks like.

The Bridge

A few weeks back me and John (Creative Director at 383 project) set ourselves a challenge to launch a charity site over the bank holiday weekend. The site was for a local charity called The Bridge who work with men and women recovering from drug and alcohol addictions and also serve the needs of women exiting prostitution.

Me & John have posted a blog post on the 383 Project website about how we built the site over the weekend including tips for charities.

If you like what we have done then drop us a comment or help The Bridge by supporting the Yorkshire 3 peaks challenge, the first of what will hopefully be many fundraising pages for The Bridge.
