Merry Christmas from S8080



2014 has been another wonderful year. We’ve done some incredible things with our clients. From playing a part in helping Welsh Government deliver what is probably the world’s most comprehensive and engaging business information, guidance and advice website through to the hugely successful #Vampireenergy Halloween campaign that helped the Dept. of Energy and Climate Change show thousands of consumers how easy it is to save a pile of cash. The Prime Minister even tweeted it!

Our EPiServer experience continues to attract attention at the very highest levels with the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists being launched (thank you guys!) and continuing exciting developments working with the exceptional CITB team.

We also took part in the Swansea Bay 5K (warning – photos of sweaty, puffing developers!), we moved offices and had a number of talented people join our exceptional team.

We are very lucky to work with so many enthusiastic clients who are committed to improving the way people can interact with their organisations using the internet; it makes every single day interesting and rewarding.

The whole S8080 team would like to sincerely thank every single one of our clients for your support this year

We hope you enjoy your Christmas break and we’ll see you in 2015.

Move over ‘Selfie’, here’s the S8080 ‘Elfie’.

We’ve had another exciting year working on some wonderful projects. We would like to thank you sincerely for your support during 2013. The S8080 team and our clients have done some pretty amazing things together this year. Every single day is interesting and rewarding. Here’s to an equally exciting 2014!

We would like to point out that no elves were harmed during the making of this email…no really, we checked with our Elf & Safety Advisor!

By the way, we are looking for a talented graphic designer to join us, so if you know anyone who wouldn’t mind dressing up in a daft costume for next year’s Christmas card, please send them this link!

S8080 do the Rocky Horror Show…

Not likely, far too cold.

Sorry to disappoint 😉

Maybe we should shoot our annual Halloween photograph during summer next year. But for now, here are most of us sporting very seasonal pumped-up hairdo’s, courtesy of Rod’s exceptional photography and retouching skills.

A very Happy Halloween to everyone.

If you enjoy Hipstamatic, go have a play with Swankolab – a ‘cool as anything’ retro darkroom on your iPhone complete with smelly chemicals and a formula book.

Hipstamatic, ShakeItPhoto and Swankolab make the iPhone camera actually worth having.

Sunny morning

For a few short seconds, at 7.00am this morning, it looked like Spring might have finally arrived just in time for the well deserved Easter break…

Check out Hipstamatic on the iPhone and get some lo-fi back into your photo album.

Whatever you are doing this weekend, have fun and happy Easter.

2008 in Photographs

If you are remotely interested in photography, you have probably visited The Boston Globe’s The Big Picture.

Today, they publish the second of three groups of amazing photographs that capture 2008 through the eyes of photographers… the images are wonderful, stimulating, surprising and disturbing. The more upsetting shots come with a ‘cover’, warning you before you view.
