“I trust Calvium implicitly and enjoy working collaboratively and creatively with them. Working with them always feels very personal.”
“Working with Calvium was an extremely insightful and engaging experience. Their ‘Ideascape’ research project creatively identified ways in which digital platemaking can positively contribute to the social, cultural snd re-making of place.”
“Calvium had both the technological know-how and the conceptual understanding necessary to partner with the project. We were able to work together to develop a custom designed app that contained soundscapes addressing relationships with place and community.”
“Calvium clearly had the technical and creative expertise, the enthusiasm for the project as a whole, and the right ethos for bringing a project of this magnitude together. We are thrilled to have this added layer of story telling to share with the public.”
“Working with Calvium to create the immersive soundscape that is Guardian Streetstories has been just fantastic. We have been able to compose, lay out, test and refine over 70 original recordings to create this app within a couple of months”
“We partnered with Calvium because we knew we could rely on their professionalism and their expertise – not to mention their design skills and creativity. They delivered exactly what we were looking for. Their advice was at all times excellent. We’re delighted with the city visitor trail app!”
