The INDY 500

Summer has arrived, which means May grey and June gloom – doesn’t quite paint the Californian dreamin’ picture postcard. If, you’re of a certain age, and remember those old movies that always pictured London covered by a bank of fog, then the California coast is just for you. Luckily, by noon the fog / sea mist has burnt off which leaves us bathed in glorious sunshine for the rest of the day.

The San Juan office is busy on promoting its creative center, and has a handful of clients lined up to use the facility. We are also pushing another one of our assets – training – and are in the process of course expansion and updates – which I am hopeful we can expand on next month – some exciting news in the pipeline.

The Memorial day weekend, a poignant day to remember those men and women who died while serving in the United States armed forces, also brings with it one of the most spectacular of global sporting events – the Indy 500.  Having experienced it, twice, I can highly recommend it – although the night before the race is pretty eventful – for those ladies out there I will spare all the details. Race day brings 400,000 fans and 800,000 hot dogs in close proximity – thankfully it is open air. Congratulations to Dario Franchitti, who in a thrilling last corner finish clinched his third victory.

California Surf(ac)ing...

The US office is but one of a handful of Technicon global offices, but we figured we’d like to give you an American perspective on what is happening.

The US office is based in California, and there’s a good reason for that. Yeah, yeah, I know what you’re all thinking, sea, sun and surf – actually I can’t deny it, but we do have rain (that was Friday between 1PM and 3PM). Joking aside there is a good reason why the US office is located here: studios. California and more specifically Southern California are home to Kia / Hyundai / Ford / VW / Mazda / Tesla / Fisker / Toyota / Honda / Nissan / GM and BMW.

From our California location we also service our other clients scattered across the Americas, with particular emphasis on Detroit, which we are glad to report has seen a resurgence of late.

Breaking News....  In line with Technicon Design’s pursuance of new innovative solutions, we are pleased to announce our first digital creative centre. Collaborative Creative centres are remote / flexible studios (in scalability and location) that provide a secure but accessible off site facility which can be linked to our overseas Collaborative Creative Centre’s, providing truly global 24 hr support and program management to our clients design programs and access to some of the industry’s best talent.

Autodesk accredited Alias training programmes, which can be tailored to suit your specific requirements, are also offered from this facility.

The studio is fully functioning and we are currently working on a number of joint projects.
