We were commissioned last year to develop a voting website for London’s newest affordable art fair ‘The Other Art Fair’, that delivers an open platform to connect art buyers of all tastes and experience directly with the most talented emerging artists before they are signed.
The voting site was built in two phases, with the second phase being completed recently for the international voting panel to cast their vote and select this years artists for the show in May 2012. With thousands of applicants applying to the show ‘Ryan’ the show founder and director needed a way of presenting all of the applicants to his selected panel online. So we developed an application area to the existing website for all applicants to submit their work and then further developed a secondary ‘voting website’ for all of those applicants to be fed into. The panel then cast their votes and the website did the rest, producing voting stats and analytical results for the final site to be populated before launch.

Re-drawing and blurring the lines between psychedelia and sci-fi, between art and entertainment, between sound design and melody, Brazilian electronic musician Amon Tobin released his latest creation ISAM on 23rd May via the independent London-based record label Ninja Tune. The tour that ensues plays host to some incredible set/stage design. The work that has gone into the live shows is testament to Tobin’s passion and vision. Click here to get a feel for “a beautiful combination of physical geometric stage models and interactive video projections”. Tobin and his team get a big thumbs up from Lucid.
The latest thing set to light the internet world on fire, Shutl is a revolutionary delivery service software which allows the retailer to link customers up with local courier businesses and makes delivery possible in up to 90 minutes. It is also said to be the answer to that annoying problem we all encounter when being sat in all day waiting for a parcel, as delivery times within tight windows such as 10-11am on a Monday can be achieved.
This software has been tipped by the Guardian for a Media Guardian Mega Award, along with other highly acclaimed accolades.

Here at Lucid we love great design, but we also believe in great functionality and this is more crucial than ever when trying to make money online through e-commerce.
One way of increasing what a prospective customer might put through your till, or in this case payment gateway is through up selling and (X) cross selling.
So whats the difference you ask? Cross selling is where you may see a box saying “customers who bought this also bought this” below the products on one of the sites we have powered. The second up selling is where we will add a list of better products than the one being viewed to tempt the customer to upgrade and buy the more expensive, potentially superior product.
8 GB iPod Nano, $229 -> Upsell, same product family, more expensive
8 GB iPod Touch, $299 -> Upsell, same product family, more expensive
16 GP iPod Touch, $399 -> Upsell, same product family, more expensive
Apple In-Ear Headphones with Remote and Mic , $79 -> Cross-sell
It costs a lot in time, money and resources to get each customer to a transactional site. It is therefore key to have a site with great functionality and carefully thought out promotional tools throughout the site, in order to maximise revenue generation from each and every consumer visit.
Up and X are both great ways of doing just that.
