Though better known for our independent research and consultancy services, i2 media research also has extensive experience of digital media product and service design and development.  We usually deploy these skills in our longer term European Commission funded collaborative research and development projects (e.g., PASION, Community Network Game, CEEDs, Games@Large, Vital Mind).
Late in 2014 the Holocaust Educational Trust asked i2 to help them deliver digitally a high impact collection of curated content to mark the 70th anniversary of the end of the Holocaust - designed to provide new insights into the Holocaust for modern-day web, smartphone and tablet users.
i2 media delivered a website (www.70voices.org.uk) and (with experienced app developer Adam Hoyle) iOS and Android smartphone and tablet apps via the Apple App Store, Google Play and the Amazon App Store.  All launched today, Monday 19th January 2015.
New content will appear on the web and all app platforms each day for the coming 12 weeks.  6 days a week a new piece of content will be revealed, and once a week (each Sunday) a podcast reflecting on the previous week’s content will be made available for streaming and download.
We’re delighted that the Guardian has featured the launch of the website and app online today:

Professor Jonny Freeman said “It has been a pleasure working with HET to make their vision a reality.  The content curated by HET is of course very moving and thought provoking.  HET’s decision to make the content available via web and Apps will increase the reach of the content – making it available to the public in the ways people consume media content today.”
