Occasional thoughts on product and process from the Mint team

Mint appointed Digital Partner for Agatha Christie

Posted in News by Tim Morgan

Agatha Christie

We’re pleased to announce we’re partnering with the team at Agatha Christie Ltd to develop the best selling author in the world’s digital presence internationally. We’re thrilled to have been appointed in Christie’s 125th Anniversary year and look forward to sharing the host of exciting plans the brand has for future digital endeavours.

But, like all good detectives, we’ll keep the big reveals until the appropriate moment...

In the meantime, you can have a peek at our visual refresh of agathachristie.com’s homepage, developed as the first step in a lean site development ahead of the BBC series Partners in Crime (on Sundays throughout August).

And if you’re interested in approaching product development like a detective, we wrote about over investigative approach over here.

Farewell from Foldable.Me

Posted in News by Tim Morgan

FoldableMe

We sorry to announce that we’re shutting down FoldableMe. The final date for website orders will be August 31st 2015. We will not be taking any more orders after this date so if you want one last Foldable Hurrah then there’s still just enough time to create yours here.

We're very proud of what we've achieved with Foldable, an idea that came out of a hack day and then a trailblazing Kickstarter campaign back in 2012. However, as sales have slowed we felt the time was right to call it a day and focus our efforts on growing our other ventures at Mint Digital.

We're very grateful to all of our partners, suppliers, and everyone that's worked on the project, for making it consistently awesome over the past 3 years. But most of all we'd like to thank you, our customers. Your use of Foldable for weddings, conferences, team building, and even political protest has inspired us, amused us, made us go 'aw' and lifted us up many times throughout this tremendous journey.

Rapid Digital Product Development comes to Wales

Posted in News by Tim Morgan

4D2L Wales

I’m delighted to announce that this year our annual rapid digital product development event known as (‘4 Days 2 Launch’) will be coming to Wales (where it will be known as ‘Pedwar Diwrnod I Lansio’).

Since 2006 we have disappeared to the English countryside for a week (mostly Dorset, maybe Devon) and rapidly built digital products in teams. These events and the products we’ve built have helped us:

1. Come closer together as a company. It’s the only time our New York and London offices come together en masse;

2. Develop some of our best-known and most popular business ventures;

3. Experiment with new technologies and techniques.

So why Wales, specifically Swansea, this year?

Resonate 2015

Posted in Design by Tom Jarrett

Resonate

Last month I travelled to Belgrade in Serbia to attend Resonate 2015. It was my first time at Resonate Festival and my first time in Belgarde, where it is held each year. The festival lasts for six days and bills itself as providing an insight into the current situation in the fields of music, visual arts and digital culture.
