Client Story

Orange RockCorps

In an exciting project managed by Orange and Microsoft's MSN, we were asked to design and build an HTML5 showcase for Orange RockCorp's UK activities. The site uses video and dynamic effects which are all built using HTML5 rather than Flash as would traditionally have been the case.

RockCorps is non-profit organisation that combines entertainment and community work in a ground-breaking new format: anyone giving 4 hours of their time at a RockCorps organised volunteer event in their local community is given a ticket to an exclusive concert put on by RockCorps. First launched in the US in 2003, RockCorps has since coordinated voluntary work and held concerts around the world. In the UK, RockCorps is partnered with Orange, the mobile network and broadband provider.

HTML5 is the latest incarnation of HTML and, alongside improvements in supporting technologies such as Javascript and CSS, it has strengthened the capabilities of browsers and websites so they are no longer so dependent on plug-ins to offer content and functionality rich websites and web apps. Click here for a quick primer on HTML5.

Working to tight deadlines and meeting the expectations of two clients with strong design and performance requirements, we built an HTML5 site that has been very well received.
