Having outgrown our previous premises, we made a great start to the new year by moving to smart new offices in the centre of Much Wenlock. Formally a 17th century coaching inn, Bank House is now home to Idonix's talented and growing team of developers.
The forthcoming US elections are in the forefront of our minds as we move towards our next project for the BBC. As usual the graphics being built are exciting and challenging with everything moving towards the big night in November. With complex animations and transition logic involved we will be using our new IGNITION software to manage the data and workflow allowing the journalists to play out graphics on air via Viz.

Russell has many years experience in broadcast television and presentation having formerly set up and run the UK operation for Brainstorm.
