What We Do

Digital

We are a collaborative, creative-led company built from the ground up to innovate in digital marketing and communication.

We combine 20 years of moving image storytelling with creative ideas and cutting edge technology. This makes us uniquely placed to take advantage of the convergence of screens.

Our complement of skills helps us deliver work that is fresh and authentic. Work that delights and activates audiences wherever they are.

We believe the best advertising isn't advertising. It's compelling content. It's stories that connect emotionally. It's experiences that people talk about and want to engage with. It's ideas that are provocative, that change people's minds and influence culture.

We are a team of creatives, technologists, designers, copywriters, developers, content directors, information architects and VFX artists, working together to make our clients businesses more successful.

Behind the Scenes: Red Gate 'DBA in Space'

BRIEF

DBAs, or database administrators, are responsible for keeping our data flowing. Our lives literally depend on DBAs: they look after everything from the Internet to our medical records.

But this responsibility is a burden. DBAs are tied into their servers, on-call 24/7. That's where Red Gate comes in. This UK software company creates tools that liberate DBAs so they can work from anywhere.

Our task was to get DBAs to talk about and try this revolutionary new software.

IDEA

Red Gate Software liberates DBAs from the server room, so we gave one lucky DBA the ultimate experience of liberation:

A trip to Space.

To get there they needed to win a competition like no other. A 14-part sci-fi mission, broadcast on the web. At the end of each episode, DBA's answered a question or completed a challenge using Red Gate software. The audience then voted for the final winner.

RESULTS

The campaign set a new a marketing benchmark for the sector.

•    Over 100,000 unique visitors from 179 countries
•    One in every five players downloaded Red Gate software
•    350% increase in Red Gate's twitter following
•    Mentioned over 2.1 million times across the web, including thousands of blog entries and tweets.

Behind the Scenes: Doritos & Pepsi 'Superpowerful Duo'

BRIEF

Create a web experience to launch two new products: Doritos Jalapeno Fire and Pepsi Max Citrus Freeze.

IDEA

A full-length online comic about two average guys who get superpowers from the new flavors of Doritos and Pepsi.

The comic was drawn by hand for an authentic look and feel. We then added interaction, animation and games to increase engagement.

The world of the comic extended into TV, print, out of home, social media, and PR.

RESULTS

•    Over 200,000 web visits in a single day30,000 visitors in the first month
•    Average visit - over 7 minutes

Behind the Scenes: Samsung, Always an Event

The creation of Samsung's website for 3D SmartTV marked a perfect convergence of The Mill NY's digital interactive, VFX and design divisions. Chris McKenzie, our UX Lead, led the development of the user flow and site architecture. Our Design Director, Jeff Stevens, and Art Director, Bowe King, led a team of designers on the creation of eight genre room scenes, and the look and feel of the user interface. Our CG team, led by Ruben Vandebroek, collaborated with the design team to create efficiencies in the developmentprocess and also to help realize the designers' vision.
