New-look Airport App Experience
Speedwell has been working with Brisbane Airport Corporation since 2013 when we developed the very first Brisbane Airport iPhone app. Since then, we have continued to deliver various digital solutions – expanding the app into the Android platform, implementing updates on the iPhone platform and integrating the Apple Watch.
In conjunction with the Online Brand Management team, the latest release of the iPhone and Android versions of the Brisbane Airport app features:
Improving Business Processes
Prowler Proof partners with a network of over 150 dealers across Australia who sell and install their extensive range of security door and window screens.
To further streamline their processes, Prowler Proof identified that dealers needed faster, more direct access to the manufacturing status of individual orders without having to phone the sales team when they received customer enquiries while out of their office. This information would also allow the dealers to provide superior service to customers via regular, up-to-date feedback about the exact status of their orders and the installation timeframes.

Speedwell partnered with Brisbane Airport (BNE) to develop and launch Australia’s first airport app with Apple Watch compatibility.

As Microsoft has officially confirmed the release of Windows 10 for July 29, let’s take a closer look on the new features. We can’t mention them all, but there are several aesthetics and functional changes that are definitely worth watching out for.
Last week Apple announced iOS 9, the next version of their operating system on mobile. This release is set to make the platform smarter and more powerful, with upgrades to built-in apps and Siri, improvements to performance, and new features that are looking to create a better experience and change the way we interact with our devices. Below are many of the changes we can expect to see with this upgrade.
A CMS (Content Management System) is an application, mostly web based, to create, edit, delete and manage content from a central interface. CMSs are often used for running small and large web sites, blogs, forums and news pages up to complete E commerce shopping platforms and can include user targeted marketing.
CMS platforms have come a long way, presented in many shapes and sizes. They are still evolving through new technologies and new ideas. With an abundant selection on the market, thorough investigation and consideration is needed before making the right choice.
Earlier in the year we talked about Google’s Android Wear, the Android OS for their watch.
On the 9th of September, Apple revealed their own watch called the Apple Watch, due to be released in 2015. As Apple’s first foray into wearable technology, the Apple Watch promises a lot more than just telling the time. From receiving notifications, tracking your health and fitness, connecting with others and making payments, the watch will enable iPhone users to connect and interact in new ways. Once again, designers and developers will need to reconsider how their iOS apps will connect with the users.
Listed below are some of the key features that Apple have highlighted in their presentation of the Apple Watch

Tools of the trade for a digital designer are Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. Photoshop is an image editing program and Illustrator is a vector graphics editor. In digital design, the two are used in conjunction with each other; however, this can bring a lot of frustration and slow down the designing process.
As a frequenter of Dribbble, a community for designers to showcase their work, the application Sketch is frequently mentioned in projects and in comments. Not wanting to be left out on the latest technology, I downloaded a free trial of the application to see what it was all about.
