VisitAR launches on the Apple App Store

Our latest app, VisitAR, is now available on the Apple App Store.

VisitAR helps you navigate your way through the streets of Manchester, the UK’s second city, to the HQ of Corporation Pop.

But VisitAR isn’t just another mapping application. Using Apple’s ARKit you can view your current location in a 3D augmented reality map, projected on to any surface in the real world. The map shows your location in relation to Corporation Pop and allows you to easily make a visual connection between the streets around you and the models you see projected in the augmented reality scene. You can even check the realtime availability of parking spaces in car parks nearby.

At any point you can tap on Corporation Pop HQ. This transforms the map view in to a self-guided 3D augmented reality tour of our studio. Once inside, you can meet the Corporation Pop team and read each of our biographies by tapping on our avatars. If you want to arrange a meeting with us you just tap any of the phones in our virtual studio and if you want to view our showreel take a seat on the virtual sofa and watch it in glorious technicolour.

VisitAR is a prototype application designed to demonstrate how augmented reality can be used to enhance visitor experiences by making both the journey and the destination an engaging interactive experience. You can read more about how we made PopCity on our blog. If you have an iPhone 7 or later you can download VisitAR on the iTunes store.

Record year brings 3 new team members

Record year brings 3 new team members

It’s been a record year at Corporation Pop. We doubled our turnover by year-end 31 August 2014, marking this year the company’s best year of trading since forming in 1991. We've secured a raft of new client wins over the last 12-months too including the BBC, Study Group, Hivehaus, Flint Plus Flint, Sutherland Global and NCUK. Growth has also continued across existing accounts with Channel 4, The Cream Group and ProReal. This success has driven demand for more hands on deck so we’re very happy to announce the appointment of three new recruits to the team.

Chris Baker has just been appointed from Uniform in Liverpool to take up the role of Senior Developer. He will be working closely with our existing Senior Developer, Oisín Wood on online projects, particularly focusing on application development. Rich Jones also joins this team. He was previously working at Virtek, a specialist music industry e-commerce agency.

New to the creative team is Mike Stanley. He was previously working at Evolutia and has been appointed as a Senior Digital Designer. We are also currently recruiting for a middleweight Digital Designer, who we hope to appoint within the next few weeks.

It’s great to welcome three new faces to the team. All have strong online skills honed over many years, so they will strengthen our existing specialism of mixing strong design with technology expertise to provide digital solutions that not only work, but look good too.

We're nominated for a Brand Impact Award!

We won't know our fate until the awards ceremony which takes place in London on the 6th March. We're in the Entertainment category and will be up against some stiff competition so wish us luck!
