CR Annual: the iPhone App

Creative Review’s 2010 Annual is now available as an iPhone App is now available from iTunes for just 59p

Creative Review’s 2010 Annual is available as an iPhone App, which includes all the selected work from our showcase of the best in visual communication over the past 12 months. The Annual app is now available from iTunes for just 59p.

For the first time at Creative Review we are making our Annual available as an iPhone App (you can get it here). All the work selected for this year’s Annual is included on the App, along with extra images and full credits. Users can click through to watch video content and link to websites, share their favourites and tweet about the work. Here’s a video to show you how it works:


As with the printed version, the App lists all the content according to the month in which it was first published, aired or launched along with the Best in Book section. But, for added functionality, you can also search by entrant.

Moving image work can be viewed via YouTube links to each piece of film while digital projects link to the websites concerned.

There is also a wealth of extra hi-res imagery on the App, much of which is not included in the print version. Just zoom in for extra detail.

The App was designed and built for us by Russell Quinn, who also created the highly-regarded App for McSweeney’s and Wallpaper*’s city guides. It is available from the iTunes App Store, priced £2.99.

Dandelion – Sennep/Yoke – 6.098

In Transvision, Sennap was allocated a space in the V&A’s Fashion Room, which covers four centuries of European dress. Inspired by the delicate, floral fabrics displayed in the glass cabinets, Sennap modified a hairdryer that visitors could use to interact with a projection of a dandelion.
