My name is Scott Hargroves. I create things out of pixels, mainly for the web, but sometimes just for kicks. Like when I built a Multitouch table in my spare time. I do other stuff too, like making short films, taking photos and sometimes sending the odd tweet.

Hello Christmas, meet uncontrollable excitement

24 Sep

Excited much.

So me and Heather finally found a place to stay (see above) in New York this Christmas on our way through to New Zealand. We had been hunting through Expedia and other online resources that serve up over priced hotels in the Big Apple but were disappointed with what you could get for our budget (which is small).

We started to think slightly alternatively when I discovered AirBnB and realised we could stay in an apartment that people are looking to rent out while they are away. Thankfully we found one after weeks of hunting that ticketed all the boxes (note the iMac on the desk) and are well and truly giddy for the trip now.

Next job is Tokyo accommodation hunting.

Yeah, good one Microsoft…

Are there any excuses to go to Berlin at the minute

22 Sep

German Skillz

I have just been looking through some of the Photos I took in Berlin and remembered how awesome that place is. Someone quickly get me an excuse to go back.

PS. The original post ‘Berliner‘ from our trip last year. How time flies.

Only just recovered from this years Glastonbury.

Munched

I can hardly believe that is that time of the year again when Glastonbury demands us to lay down the deposit for next years event. The slightly more annoying fact about it is that the full things needs to be paid off in February right when me and Heather get back from New Zealand. Gutted.

Old Flamer

Tonight Brad hosted another classic garden party with foods a plenty. However this time with it being nearly October and getting chilly we decided that we needed a fire to keep us from getting cold.

Okay so, looks like I need to buck up my ideas.

It really has been nearly a whole month since I last got around to posting anything here. Its not because I am lazy or for lack of trying, I have actually wanted too for a long time but it just hasn’t been possible. Heres why…

Just after my last update about what I was up too I had to turn around a rapid Slice and Code job which took me all night. It was fairly challenging as it involved a fair amount of strategically placed images and a great deal of Photoshop work. However it was really rewarding and what the first project I had worked on with a new client. The downside is however I can’t show (or tell) anyone what the site is or that I worked on it. Mainly because the work was passed on to me as a matter of turn around time and the people this was actually for are not to know that someone else worked on it. Not ideal, but I can say that it was for a band who have a few very well selling albums but you probably will have never heard of them.

Next up at the end of August me and the rest of my family were treated to a visit from my Mum who I haven’t seen in roughly three years. It was amazing to see her and I hope she had a nice time hanging out with me and Heather when she stayed over. We did a few awesome things, like visit a deserted medieval village, eat fine cuisine in Pickering, eat not so fine cakes in Howden, got caught in insane rain storms and drove with the top down. All of which was great and Heather and I can’t wait to visit my parents in December.

Then I some how managed to loose 5 karma for reasons I don’t remember but this lead too another quick turn around job under the same circumstances as the last. The general outline is, work on an awesome project that you would normally be proud of but can’t ever show anyone what it actually is. All I can say is that it isn’t porn. Honest. Srsly.

That leads me to now. Working may A-Hole off on Critit, my day job and on finishing up the new fourleaves. To sum up the last month here is a massive steaming pile of images.
