Tim, Jim and Rabbie Burns, behind the scenes

There has been a lot stirring behind the door of the Visualizethis office this month and today we were graced by the presence of a very special guest. Robert Burns himself made an appearance in our beautiful Heckling Shed, musing over prose and savouring a dram. He arrived here in 1781 and now in the light of 2015, Visualizethis is walking in his creative footsteps to produce original, innovative works.

On top of an exciting and busy workload the Visualizethis team have all been putting in some extra hours to develop our new Augmented Reality (AR), video campaign. This new technology allows the user to see a digitally enhanced version of their world, where for example, one minute you are scanning the cover of a static magazine and the next the image comes to life and interacts with you – think, moving paintings in Harry Potter. We are on a mission to utilise this technology as a way of showing people what it is like to work here, what we do, who we are and what we are capable of.

To cite Burns himself, Visualizethis gies you the Power to see yoursel’ as ithers see ye.

We’re moving! That’s right, Visulizethis HQ is upping sticks and tottering down the road to Irvine’s Heckling Shop. Swapping out our cozy, contemporary digs for the humbling habitat where Rabbie Burns himself earned his bread.

Needless to say we are feeling excited and inspired. Having collected the keys and had a nosey at the blank canvas interior there is no doubt that the  ‘Bard of Ayrshire’ has left some of his creative spirit in the air. There is a lot of work to be done by the Visualizethis fairies but it won’t be long before our friends, new, old and yet to come will be enjoying our company, snug under our beautiful, old, thatched roof.
