downthetubes is undergoing some main site refurbishment...

Saturday, 7th October 2017

The downthetubes news blog was assimilated into our main site back in 2013, but we're glad you're here, because that's currently undergoing some under the bonnet refurb! So we've brought this blog back from the dead to tide us over.

We expect to be back up and running next week, just before the 2017 Lakes International Comic Art Festival - see you there?

New Lakes International Comic Art Festival "App" offers artwork rewards


Heading to the Lakes International Comic Art Festival? Get the Festival app on your iPhone, iPad or iTouch - and grab some artwork rewards as you explore Kendal.

Created by Mobetrics, a Cumbrian mobile technology and app development company, the app, designed by Joe Lethbridge at Cactus Creative, will enhance your Festival experience by providing event information, assistance in finding venues.

With Bluetooth enabled, the app also offers the option to collect artwork on your as you go along, by artists such as Duncan Fegredo, Aimee de Jongh and Christian Ward, among others.

This is the first phase and the Festival is looking for your feedback on what will make the app, and the Festival, even better!

Based in Cockermouth, Mobetric's work designing apps for IOS, Android and Blackberyy includes Stolen Lives,  a learning resource featuring an illustrated comic book, which builds upon extensive research into the use of visual content and mental exploration to aid learning as well as employing the principles of transformative learning techniques.

Cactus Creative - a team of eight - are based in Kendal in The Factory – an independent, creative hub which is home to other talented creatives and artists. Their work includes Kendal's own web site (visit-kendal.co.uk) and work for Keswick's Theatre by the Lake.

Download the app from iTunes here (requires iOS 10.3 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch)
