2009: a round-up

The dawn of a fresh, inspiring and exciting new decade is upon us, and as we reflect on the past twelve months, we realise what a truly exciting year 2009 was for us!


The year started off with the focus on media training, primarily in the form of youth workshops on all manner of creative and technical things. From DJ and Music Production courses to Photography, VJ’ing and our ever popular Games Design course where young people involved with local schools, youth groups and charities worked to design, develop and produce their own video games. They learnt all aspects of gaming from filming each other to appear in the games, to photography, storyboarding, sound fx recording and audio production. There were some incredible results and we want to thank everybody involved!


Things took a turn for Ian in April when the focus shifted to design, development and programming for a number of large clients. He sees out 2009 well and truly embedded in a number of big, ongoing projects with plenty of smaller, one-offs along the way.


August was an exciting month for the team when we opened our new commercial premises at 111 Banks Road, West Kirby. The studio is a perfect setting for all kinds of photographic work, and Amy and the freelance team have been kept on their toes with portraits, product and corporate work, music photography and a full Wedding season to boot. The Christmas rush saw us settle in to the area for good opening longer and longer hours every day in order to accommodate all of those lovely Christmas gift portraits. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who came in to see us this year for making us feel so very welcome on Banks Road.


Looking to 2010… we have Lee Williams onboard to assist Ian with a number of projects in the pipeline relating to networking, security and generally making I.T work for you.


So at the start of a new and exciting year for us, we want to wish you, your business and your loved ones a prosperous New Year… from all at slinkymedia.
