The Great British Innovation Vote was part of National Science and Engineering Week and the Great British Campaign. We were asked to create a website to create a buzz and certainly succeeded when the Science Museum server had the largest number of concurrent visits at one time. You could vote for the most important innovation of the last 100 years and the recent one most likely to shape our future. Stephen Fry voted for The Universal Machine. What did you vote for?
Maraid showed great enthusiasm and professionalism throughout the project. They came up with creative ideas when appropriate but also showed attention to detail and the all important ability to just get things done. It was a demanding project with multiple stakeholders and they managed to keep on budget and schedule despite being thrown a few last minute challenges. Overall the project was a resounding success: innovation endorsements from the Prime Minister to Stephen Fry; national press coverage, amazing Twitter uptake, 50,000 votes cast and over 90,000 unique visitors in the space of two weeks. Thank you Maraid!
