We did it! #bestdigitalstartup2016

OK, so we’re not going to make a huge fuss about this but… WE WON BEST DIGITAL  STARTUP AWARD!

Needless to say we are thrilled to be recognised for our innovation and all round fantasticness in the second Lincolnshire Digital Awards – and if you want to see the award – and us looking quite smart in our DJs and really, really pleased with ourselves – we’re here.

We didn’t get to make a speech on the night, but if we had, we’d have given our huge thanks to you for loving our personalised heads, supporting us with your custom,  telling all your friends about us, and posting your brilliant videos and images on Facebook, Twitter and the rest. Thank you – and we love you all!


It’s official! We’re finalists in the Lincolnshire Digital Awards!

We’re very excited to tell you that we’ve been shortlisted among this year’s finalists in the Best Digital Startup category in the Lincolnshire Digital Awards!  More than 90 nominations were received across the eight award categories, so we’re absolutely thrilled to bits to be a contender.

This is the second year of the Lincolnshire Digital Awards, organised by the Lincolnshire Business magazine to recognise innovative technology in the Greater Lincolnshire Area, and it’s shaping up to be bigger and better than the first in 2015. This year’s judging event will be held at The Engine Shed, on campus at the University of Lincoln, on Thursday, April 28 – in just one week’s time!

Described as the platform that rewards Lincolnshire’s best creative and innovative businesses for their hard work and contribution to Lincoln’s reputation for digital creativity, the award ceremony will feature an evening of digital entertainment – and we’re promised a never-before-seen stage show put together by local talents. There’s stiff competition in our category of course, so we’re crossing our fingers. Whatever happens on the night, we’re just so proud to be recognised and we want to thank you, our customers for all your support.

Wish us luck!

We do it differently – at the 2016 Innovation Conference

Fresh from our success at the recent Lincolnshire Business Expo, we gathered up our camera kit and took the little guys to the Doing it Differently Innovation Conference at the Lincoln Performing Arts Centre (LPAC) last Thursday.

The Doing it Differently Innovation Conference first appeared in 2015 and was set up to provide Lincolnshire businesses with opportunities to network, build business skills and access business support. Being sociable guys, we love to mix and mingle with other businesses, especially as we get to show off our very own innovative Funky3DFaces and spread the fun!

There were around 200 businesses represented at the conference and we had a great time speaking to most of them, as well as capturing their images with our portable kit so they could order their very own 3D heads on the spot!

The event also had some top speakers, including Dave Coplin, Microsoft’s Chief Envisioning Officer, who talked about how to envision the HR boardfull potential of technology, and Ben Mee, author of the best seller We Bought a Zoo, later made into a successful Hollywood film.

We’re always keen to show off how our personalised mini-figures can be used by local businesses, and one really good idea we came across recently was from local accountants Russell Payne & Co. Russell and his team put together a fun ‘attitude’ board to inspire and motivate themselves every day and we displayed it on our Expo stand earlier this year.

The idea was picked up by local HR consultant Neil Buck, who snapped the photo you can see in this post and was wowed by the ingenuity behind the idea.
