1. What’s your business? (In a nutshell)
In a nutshell, Big Media specialises in designing and building mobile-friendly and cross platform websites and web applications. Our skills include full website design and build, graphics and video creation, software application integration and (offline) web app development. The team has also delivered full UI and UX (user interface and user experience) wireframing and storyboard planning for clients such as EDF Energy (Smart Metering project) and the LSN – Learning and Skills Network – for a mobile learning authoring system.

Working as an overlay to traditional responsive web design techniques, Chameleon provides the capability of device recognition to web sites and applications, allowing design and content to be tailored for specific products, not just generic platforms such as mobile handsets.
